  • Every Pi Phi is an advocate and can make a difference through Read > Lead > Achieve advocacy efforts. Watch the video to learn more.
  • Read > Lead > Achieve® is Pi Beta Phi’s philanthropic effort, which inspires a lifelong love of reading that can unlock true potential, creating a more literate and productive society. Our charge is for every Pi Beta Phi to find a way she can participate, donate or advocate for Read > Lead > Achieve!

    According to the National Education Association, the more children read, the better they will read. That's why Pi Phi works to create positive reading experiences through Read > Lead > Achieve initiatives like Champions are Readers® and Fraternity Day of Service. Providing access to books, with the partnership of organizations like First Book®, improves children's interest in reading, increases their desire to learn and promotes reading at home. 

    In June 2017, Pi Beta Phi celebrated the success of our campaign to impact one million lives through Read > Lead > Achieve. We're committed to building upon our legacy of literacy service by empowering our members to create change in their communities. Every Pi Phi can be an advocate for literacy and make a difference in the lives of children close to home and around the world.

    The Power of Reading

    We believe reading always has been — and always will be — a powerful step toward a life of enduring impact. We believe that when one out of four children cannot read, that's one child too many.

    We believe in inspiring readers, sparking imaginations and igniting the desire to learn, that readers become leaders and that reading is the foundation of all that we can achieve in life.

    For more than a century, we’ve committed ourselves to creating a more literate and productive society. We’ve changed with the times, but never shifted our vision. So, at Pi Beta Phi, we honor the past while we build for the future …

    One child … one moment at a time … one life changed forever.
