The White House Initiative on Educational Excellence in Hispanics recognized Infinity Insurance’s Read Conmigo for its support of families seeking to build the bilingual literacy skills of their children.
Read Conmigo is listed among more than 230 “Bright Spots in Hispanic Education,” a catalog of “programs, models, organizations, and initiatives that are supporting and investing in the educational attainment of Hispanics,” according to the U.S. Department of Education.
Infinity proudly sponsors Read Conmigo, and we are honored to see the program recognized as a “Bright Spot” alongside so many worthy organizations that serve bilingual families. Infinity’s mission is to serve others, and helping families strengthen their children’s bilingual reading skills fits right in with that mission.
The White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanics (Initiative) was originally established in 1990 to address the educational disparities faced by the Hispanic community. The Initiative seeks to leverage the “Bright Spots in Hispanic Education” to encourage collaboration between stakeholders focused on similar issues in sharing data-driven approaches, promising practices, peer advice, and effective partnerships, ultimately resulting in increased support for the educational attainment of the Hispanic community.
Read Conmigo is a parent-focused bilingual literacy program, empowering families to read together in both English and Spanish. Parents of children, from babies to 5th graders, can subscribe to receive free books available online, in print, and on mobile devices. Since its inception in 2010, Read Conmigo has distributed over 1 million books to families, schools and libraries nationwide. Read Conmigo also partners with over 11,000 educators. The program promotes the distinct educational, social, and financial benefits of bilingualism and provides parents with free tools and resources to help them create a lifelong love of reading.
