Opportunity Details

Reading Captain Virtual Training

For the last three years the Reading Captains initiative has fought to protect every  child’s right to read in Philadelphia by connecting community members on the ground to a citywide movement for early literacy - the Read by 4th Campaign. Reading Captains are trusted community members who are passionate about childhood literacy and want to do more for families and see systems do more for them too. 

About 400 people have already been trained as reading captains and this year we’re making a commitment to train 300 more. We want to make sure that every region in the city has early literacy champions. 

We, current reading captains and the administrative team at Global Citizen, want you to join this movement. Delivered by two seasoned Reading Captains, this training will certify you as a Reading Captain in Philadelphia.

Want to know more before you sign up? After the training you’ll be ready to help parents in your community:

  • Understand how everyday adults can help young brains develop  

  • What common developmental milestones parents can look for

  • How to confidently navigate school registrations

  • Tips and tricks for  consistent school attendance

  • How every family can build their own home library with books that represent them and their family, for free or low cost

  • How to make the most of out of school time and how to access local literacy resources. 

  • Connect to a local reading captain region where the can meet other reading captains who are working to make reading happen everywhere

Ready to become a champion for early literacy? Come help protect every child’s right to read.
