Read by 4th, Communications Manager

Posted by Free Library of Philadelphia on February 4, 2020

Read by 4th is a citywide effort of an ever-growing network of partners working to dramatically increase the number of children reading on grade-level by the time they begin 4th grade. Led by the Free Library of Philadelphia, the coalition of 100+ organizations works to build school-readiness, promote quality reading instruction, increase access to summer and out-of-school-time learning, and improve daily on-time attendance.  A key strategy of all of the campaign’s work is to build awareness of how to support children’s literacy and mobilize communities to advance the goals of the campaign.

Key responsibilities of this position include: managing ongoing communications to partner organizations and families; working with partners to encourage use of campaign communications materials; engage communities around early literacy; and ensure the campaign is actively telling the story of the many and diverse partners who are advancing the goals of the campaign, and support the partners in telling their part of the Read by 4th story. The communications manager will be expected to work independently but also to be able to collaborate with the Free Library of Philadelphia’s communications department and with communications staff at various other partner organizations.
