CACFP Virtual Summit Registration is Live!

June 24, 2024

Virtual Summit (1200 x 900 px)

Read Aloud is on a mission to build a universal read aloud habit! When caregivers read aloud it helps prepare children for reading and learning. According to Read Aloud, just 15 minutes of daily reading aloud from birth to age 8 can change the face of education in this country.

To embark on your own reading aloud journey, join their interactive 21-day read aloud challenge and get to reading!

Here's how it works:

1) Accept the challenge by posting a photo or video of you reading aloud with the children in your care on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram and continue reading aloud for at least 15 minutes for 21 days in a row. Please tag @Read Aloud for Facebook; @ReadAloud_org for Twitter; and @read_aloud_15 for Instagram with #21DayReadAloud.

2) Challenge three more people with a child from birth to age 8 to accept the #21DayReadAloud Challenge and pass it on.

Whether you're a seasoned CACFP veteran or new to the program, the Virtual Summit promises to provide valuable insights and practical strategies to elevate your performance and make a positive impact on the communities you serve.

All sessions will be recorded and available for viewing through August 29, 2024. This means attendees can access all the valuable content at their convenience, allowing them to absorb the information at their own pace and revisit sessions as needed.
