Be a Phanatic About Reading encourages children in kindergarten through eighth grade to read for a minimum of 15 minutes a day to improve literacy and comprehension skills.
Phillies Phundamentals is an after-school/summer camp program that makes learning fun by using the theme of baseball to teach and reinforce academic skills.
