Literacy Partners strengthens families through a two-generation approach to education. With our free classes, community-based workshops, and educational media, low income parents develop the literacy and language skills they need to succeed in today's world. Our research-based curriculum also incorporates child development and parenting support to help parents boost their children's early reading, school readiness, and social emotional growth.
Literacy Partners believes in the power of storytelling. We have created television content that has reached more than one million viewers with more in development. In 2018, our production of We Speak NYC, a seven-episode dramatic comedy about new immigrants of color making their way in New York, won the NY Emmy Award for best educational program. In 2019, La Fuerza de Creer, a telenovela miniseries we produced with Univision about families fighting to save their beloved community center from real estate development, was the second most-watched show nationally in its time-slot among Hispanic viewers. For both shows, we have created large-scale educational campaigns that bring people together to watch the show, build community around their common goals, and apply the insights from the educational content to their own lives.
We are looking for a Spanish-speaking Digital Media Specialist to help us further develop and implement our national education campaign based on La Fuerza de Creer. The campaign consists of community-based workshops for parents and family members, training for childcare workers and early childhood educators, and online resources to support the campaign. We are working closely with Univision as well Head Start programs, Pre-K programs and schools, libraries, and others to implement this campaign. The Digital Media Specialistwill work closely with the National Director of Parent Education, other Literacy Partners staff, and an advisory group of experts to create Spanish language digital and print assets and manage the online presence for the campaign. She or he will edit existing video clips and create new content. Design visual materials for Spanish-speaking parents/providers in partnership with affiliates across the country.
