Literacy Alive! is Kappa Delta Pi’s signature service initiative that invites members to create programs and events in their communities that bring empowering literacy skills to their participants. With international impact, Literacy Alive! has been appropriately named to reflect the program’s energizing growth and tremendous possibilities!

Literacy continues to be a top priority worldwide. For nearly a decade, Kappa Delta Pi has led an effort among our 40,000 members to participate in our signature service program – Literacy Alive!

Activities range from a simple book drive for a community center or a literacy program at a local library to specialty projects that work with disadvantaged children, military families, and victims of natural disaster. The ability to read is an incredible skill that impacts everyone.

In 2013, over 250 chapters submitted their intent to participate in Literacy Alive!, serving more than 29,051 people and collecting over 14,476 books for distribution globally.
