The Intergenerational Literacy Program (ILP) is committed to assisting learners and families in reaching their language, literacy, and career goals through education and connections with a range of support services. The Intergenerational Literacy Program (ILP) was begun in 1989 in Chelsea, MA by Dr. Jeanne R. Paratore, Professor of Education at Boston University. The program was developed to achieve three goals: 1. Improve the English literacy of parents. 2. Support the literacy development and academic success of their children.3. Conduct research on the effectiveness of an intergenerational approach to literacy.
