Read by 4th is Philadelphia's Grade-Level Reading campaign, aiming to get all kids reading on grade-level by the time they reach 4th grade. Reading happens everywhere—in our schools, work, homes, and even our blocks! And this year we are introducing our newest inititaive, Reading Captains!
Right now, many of our young children in Philadelphia struggle with reading, but we can change this with your help. Step up and be a Reading Captain for families on your block, building, or organization. Connect people you know to important information so their children can become great readers. All you need is to be 18 years old, someone who enjoys talking with your neighbors, and able to attend a two-hour training workshop. It’s free and a great way to meet other first-time Reading Captains!
Registration is easy. Sign up now, even if you can’t make the first training, as more dates will be coming soon.
Our first Reading Captain training workshop will take place on:
Saturday, September 16, 2017
10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.
Community College of Philadelphia
Great Hall, Winnet Student Life Building (second floor)
1700 Spring Garden Street.
Connect families in your neighborhood to reading resources that lead to student success!
