VSLA Richmond Area Chapter Parents and Readers Grant Application due April 26th

Each year, RAC works with one school to facilitate a Parents and Readers Workshop which includes complimentary books! Parents and children attend the workshop together and will leave with books to take home. This workshop is designed to help schools support families in creating a culture of literacy at home. The application requirements, deadline, and link (to the application) are as follows: 


  • At least one staff member at the school must be a CURRENT RAC member
  • Schools must have 50% or more students eligible for free and reduced lunch
  • Parents must attend the hour long RAC workshop at school (or virtually) with their children/students
  • School groups, such as Title 1, CIS, PTA, etc., will be invited to support the workshop
  • A school representative will work with the RAC Parents and Readers Coordinator to determine the timeframe for the Parents and Readers Workshop (Spring 2021, Summer 2021, or Fall 2021)
