National Center For Families Learning (NCFL) Tackles Education Challenges At Annual Summit

WASHINGTON, Feb. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Recognizing that families play such a crucial role in a child's learning process, the annual Families Learning Summit and National Conference on Family Literacy, from NCFL, today convened national education leaders to consider the special challenges and opportunities that exist surrounding family learning.

The Summit features a keynote luncheon sponsored by Toyota, a longstanding partner of NCFL.

Teachers, education advocates, policy makers and families have gathered for stimulating events, discussing everyday learning opportunities for children and their families. The goal is to inspire a thirst for knowledge that begins in school but thrives outside the boundaries of a school.

"We have long-believed in the importance of ongoing learning to confront educational challenges, respond to societal changes and present new opportunities," said Emily Kirkpatrick, vice president, NCFL. "And for more than 20 years, Toyota has been the perfect co-pilot on the road to making that shared vision a reality."

Today's keynote luncheon, featuring actress and learning enthusiast Holly Robinson Peete and Toyota's Michael Rouse, vice president of diversity, philanthropy and community affairs, celebrates that mission and honors current programs and teachers who share NCFL's and Toyota's mission with two notable awards: the Toyota Family Learning grants and the Toyota Family Teacher of the Year. The winners were announced today.

"Toyota applauds the National Center for Families Learning and the winners of the Toyota Family Learning grants and Toyota Family Teacher of the Year award for their work to enrich the lives of families around the nation," said Michael Rouse, vice president of diversity, philanthropy and community affairs for Toyota. "In the words of our honorary chairman Dr. Shoichiro Toyoda, 'An investment in our youth is an investment in our future.'"

Toyota Family Learning Grant Program

Toyota Family Learning is a new six-year, nationwide initiative offering mobile learning adventures and online resources for families and grants for communities to fund new mentor and service learning programs targeting vulnerable families.
