UnidosNow, with the support of the Community Foundation of Sarasota County‘s 2Gen, continues to improve its Families Together Program that began at Tuttle Elementary School offering twice a week sessions for parents. The first group will be graduating this month. More news to come.
Building on the success of the program at Tuttle Elementary we are now implementing our Families Together program at Gocio Elementary. Parents are meeting twice a week to learn English, life skills, and tools to understand the challenges and rewards of raising children in a bi-cultural and bi-lingual environment.
