Become a Literacy Ambassador!

Read Ready Covington’s calls each of us to share the importance of early literacy with everyone we meet. Early literacy includes more than just singing the Alphabet song and counting to ten. Literacy includes self-regulation, language development, social, and emotional growth, knowledge about one’s family and neighborhood, and development of a positive attitude toward learning of all kinds. RRC Literacy Ambassadors help spread the word about the urgent need to better prepare our young children for a strong start in Kindergarten.

  • Literacy Ambassadors are individuals that have committed to promoting early literacy with all residents throughout the geographic boundaries of Covington; including our families, neighbors, colleagues, students, childcare educators, employers, faith and civic leaders.  
  • Our RRC Ambassadors tell Covington families about the many resources and literacy events available throughout Covington.
  • RRC Ambassadors are called to share, demonstrate, and encourage use of the Clever Kids University and Footsteps2Brilliance apps for children, and the RRC parent support app made available to all Covington residents for free.
  • Ambassadors invite families to attend literacy events, help children to have books available for use in their homes, and  encourage the emergence of children’s strengths in preparation for Kindergarten and throughout their school years.
