Logos for CORRAL, Literacy and Community Initiative, and Refugee HOPE Partners


Write. Engage. Lead.

The Literacy and Community Initiative (LCI) is a collaboration among the NC State College of Education’s Department of Teacher Education and Learning Sciences, the Friday Institute and community-based organizations. LCI’s mission is to build university and community-based partnerships by amplifying youth voices through student publications, advocacy and leadership. Youth from CORRAL Riding Academy and the Refugee Hope Partners will read their written narratives and answer questions on their personal journeys. Come hear their powerful stories and engage with student authors in the community. The event will be live streamed here: https://go.ncsu.edu/aek9ly6. Please consider supporting our continued work through a purchase of LCI’s 7th publication, Healing Starts with a Story.
