What is Literacy Alive!?
Literacy Alive! is Kappa Delta Pi’s signature service initiative in which chapters and individual members are encouraged to participate by hosting events and programs that bring empowering literacy skills to their participants.

For more than 20 years, Kappa Delta Pi has led an effort among our 40,000 members to participate in Literacy Alive! Activities range from a simple book drive for a community center to a literacy program at a local library to specialty projects that work with disadvantaged children, military families, and victims of natural disaster among others. The ability to read is an essential skill that impacts everyone.

Projects can be submitted under the categories below.

Literacy Alive! Program Categories
  1. Cross Curriculum Programming
  2. Strong Community Partnership
  3. International Impact
  4. Culturally Responsive (Meeting the Needs of a Diverse Population)
  5. Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) Programming

How to Participate
Joining the Literacy Alive! initiative is easy! Chapters can participate by hosting any event, project, or program that enhances the literacy skills of those participating. After the event or program is complete, simply submit the Literacy Alive! Collegiate Achievement Form to share your project’s success with Kappa Delta Pi.

Check out the Literacy Alive! resource section for past project ideas, tools to get started, and more!

Once your Literacy Alive! program or event is complete, simply submit the Literacy Alive! Collegiate Achievement Form. This form asks for basic information regarding the planning, development, and success of your chapter’s Literacy Alive! project. This achievement form will be used to determine the Collegiate Literacy Alive! Awards and to provide recognition to individual KDP members for their participation in our signature service initiative.
