Champions are Readers

NC Delta has partnered with Bugg Elementary School in Raleigh, NC to assist children struggling and working to improve their literacy. It is so important that each child is provided with an education and the ability to read. Pi Beta Phi's unique program, Champions are Readers (CAR) is a monthlong reading enrichment program for second-grade elementary students. CAR encourages students to develop daily reading habits and provides Fraternity members with an easy-to-implement program encouraging literacy. This program is designed to supplement reading activities already provided by schools. The CAR program can be used for one classroom or several and is specifically designed to complement other local literacy programs. The members of NC Delta feel a powerful connection to the children they interact with a Bugg Elementary School. Watching their faces light up with joy when we enter their classrooms each Friday is a feeling that stays with you forever.
