Call for Proposals!

Updated: Jun 29

BCDI-Atlanta invites you to submit proposals for our Summer Literacy Program to support the engagement of Black children in learning experiences that will improve listening, speaking, reading and writing skills, as well as increase their love for reading. The BCDI-Atlanta Summer Literacy Program is funded by the National Black Child Development Institute (NBCDI) Read to Succeed grant with children's books sponsored by community partners, such as Scholastic and the Mayor's Summer Reading Club. Our Summer Literacy Program will offer a series of DECAL-approved workshops for parents and early educators to learn how to engage young children from infancy through age 8 in developmentally and culturally appropriate literacy experiences.

BCDI-Atlanta is requesting Literacy Workshop Proposals from DECAL-approved trainers who are interested in presenting during our Early Literacy Institutes and/or Early Literacy Super Saturdays this summer. All literacy workshops must be culturally responsive and DECAL-approved. Individuals must be comfortable with using technology (e.g., Zoom); however, staff will be available for technical support.

Proposals are due Friday, July 10, 2020. Please submit a separate form for each training topic.

Proposal decisions will be made by June 30, 2020. Priority will be given to current BCDI-Atlanta members. Trainers invited to present for our Summer Literacy Program will be compensated based on credentials and experience.
