HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS REPORT:

In 2018, the Reading Partnership began a three-year evaluation of the Reading Partnership for Black Parents (RPBP), a program based on their existing Reading Partnership for Parents (RPP) program. Targeted to families in the Kingston Galloway-Orton Park (KGO) community in the city of Toronto, these programs are 6 to 12-week play-based programs that promote social and emotional wellbeing through literacy activities involving both parents and their children. The program also supports the development of community among parents involved in the program.

The RPBP differs from RPP as it incorporates recognition of and responsiveness to the unique realities of Blackness and anti-Black racism. The RPBP program includes all-Black participants and facilitators, Black-centric reading materials, and cultural identity and celebration. With the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, The Reading Partnership adapted to move to virtual program delivery.

This report represents a summary of the evaluation of the in-person RPBP and the RPP online program offerings and is based on five evaluation reports produced since 2018.
