Impact Ministries and Community Mobilization
I60 Impact Ministry and Mobilization is about – Shaping Communities Through Literacy.
I60 works as the front lines facilitator and coordinator, The North America Literacy Initiative, a community catalyst for children who need more help reading than the traditional classroom setting may provide.
Our role is to first bridge the national tools and resources of NALI with the needs of local communities and their leaders.
Secondly we work with community leaders such as politicians, caring volunteers, educators and administrators, and of course church leaders to build local incubators and ministry mobilization strategies.
Lastly, we work with certifying trainers and resource specialist to implement literacy tutoring programs that work efficiently, and effectively.
