Champions are Readers

 CAR1

    Champions are Readers® (CAR) is our reading enrichment programs for elementary school students. We pride ourselves in being a chapter that participates in weekly hands on service through CAR. This easy to administer program is designed to supplement reading activities that schools already provide. The CAR program can be used for one classroom or several, and it is specifically designed to complement other local literacy programs that a club or chapter may direct. Our members visit local elementary schools and read to 1st-3rd grade students. We also visit our local Boys and Girls Club and help with homework, reading, games, and other activities. Our goal at Cal Eta is to expand this program to other local school districts in need as well as to different organizations that could benefit from our philanthropic efforts

 

Read. Lead. Achieve. and Pi Beta Phi Foundation. 

     As of January 1, 2012 all literacy funds are to be filtered through Pi Beta Phi Foundations's literacy fund. The Foundation will consider opportunities to support chapter fundraising efforts, including online opportunities. The Foundation will explore options for helping chapter and alumnae organizations support local beneficiaries. Members are personally committed to Pi Beta Phi literacy initiatives. See how Pi Beta Phi and its members will pave the way to a more literate society. Check back often to see how Pi Beta Phi's initiatives are enhanced to meet both the needs of the membership and society.

Our Initiatives 

Along with Champions are Readers®, Pi Beta Phi's other initiatives include... 

  • Fraternity Day of Service - Pi Beta Phi celebrates Fraternity Day of Service on March 2nd in honor of Dr. Seuss' birthday. Phi Phis focus their efforts on literacy service and follow the principles under our Read. Lead. Achieve Platform. In the past we have served by partnering with Jumpstart to help children create bookmarks and play learning games at a local event. This past year our members spend this day at the Pi Phi house and collected, cleaned, organized, and donated 9 boxes of books to programs in need of fresh reading material for students. 
  • First Book® . - In June 2007 Pi Beta Phi and Pi Beta Phi Foundation announced its corporate partnership with First book® , and international nonprofit organization founded in 1992 with a single mission: to give children from low-income families the opportunity to read and own their first new books. Together through innovative programs such as First Book®  Speed Read and the Local Literacy Initiative, First Book®  and Pi Beta Phi are committed to bringing new books to children from low-income families in communities across the United States and Canada. 
  • Arrow in the Arctic- Pi Phi's Canadian philanthropy, Arrow in the Arctic, supports literacy in Canada's Norther library systems: the Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut. Established at the 1967 Convention to commemorate the centennials of Canada and Pi Beta Phi, Arrow in the Arctic donations are also helping to preserve the language and culture of the north's inuit and First nations. Pi Beta Phi is the only Panhellenic group to have its own Canadian Philanthropy. 

Why Read.Lead. Achieve.?

    Pi Beta Phi wants to better serve its members and society. A little more than 2,600 members completed an online Philanthropic Future Survey in 2010 and through this assessment most respondents believe Pi Beta Phi's philanthropic work should make its impact "locally." Further, 85 percent agree that opportunity to develop a mentoring relationship with those served is what most inspires Pi Phis in philanthropy. Respondents believe Pi Beta Phi will be most effective in bettering society if the Fraternity has one central project carried out by many that is in partnership with another well-known organization. 

You asked. We listened. Now let's Read. Lead. Achieve.®
