Senior Program Officer, Early Learning
Kalimah Wilson joined the Newark Trust for Education as the Senior Program Officer of Early Learning, for the Parent Child Home Program in March 2018.
The Parent Child Home Program (PCHP), is a research-based early literacy, school readiness, parenting education program that prepares children for school success by increasing language, literacy, and numeracy skills, enhancing social-emotional development, and strengthening the parent-child relationship.
Our vision is that every child enters school ready to succeed because every parent has the knowledge and resources to build school readiness where it starts: the home.
Prior to joining the Trust, Kalimah has fulfilled several positions within the same organization dedicated to community related programs. Through her work, she has gained substantial professional experience with youth, family, education, policy, management, grant writing and program development. Kalimah has spent her time working for and with various youth- and family-centered service and nonprofit organizations which has enhanced her skill set and deepened her passion for and commitment to providing services to families.
