The RI Family Literacy Initiative (RIFLI) is a 16-year-old-adult education agency and we primarily serve immigrants – approximately 250 a year. We offer an educational continuum from beginner English as a Second Language (ESL) classes to Career and College Transitions preparation. We partner with many libraries, work sites and community agencies where we offer our classes. Over the past year we’ve advanced technology initiatives that we hope will build a cohesive, integrated solution to address our students’ digital literacy needs.
