To help children become better readers, Read by 4th launched Reading Captains. Sign up today!

The idea is simple: we know that families turn to their friends and neighbors when looking for information and resources.  We are asking Philadelphians to become the go-to early literacy person for their community.

Reading Captains are individuals, over the age of 18, who:

  • Understand the importance of reading and are passionate about doing more for families
  • Are already connected to families in their neighborhood and around Philly
  • Are able to work collaboratively with Read by 4th staff and community partners
  • Are Committed to helping your neighbors raise strong readers

  • Attend a Reading Captain training to learn about the literacy resources available to families throughout the city.
  • Get out there and share what you learned with parents and caregivers in your neighborhood, workplace, grocery store, or even your barber shop.
  • Get connected with your regional Reading Captains group to brainstorm ways to better connect families with resources, problem solve and make new friends
