Champions are Readers
Champions are Readers® (CAR) is Pi Beta Phi’s unique reading enrichment program for students in pre-kindergarten through third grade. Since its launch in 2003, thousands of students across the United States and Canada have participated in the program. Designed to create an interactive reading and mentoring relationship between Pi Phis and children from their local communities, CAR engages children in a positive reading experience and allows participants to accommodate students’ varying academic needs.
Thanks to a grant from Pi Beta Phi Foundation, all CAR program materials—including folders, activities, certificates and books—are provided to participating chapters and alumnae clubs at no charge. Chapters and clubs are responsible only for shipping and handling costs. We encourage chapters and clubs to participate in CAR at least once a year.
