BAP International Day of Literacy

Literacy has a profound impact on health, wealth, and happiness. Sadly, reduced access to literature and rarer encouragement to read have resulted in decreased engagement among students and books, but there is hope. Even brief exposure to good reading material can boost a child’s enthusiasm for reading, and organizations like Beta Alpha Psi (BAP) are focused on increasing that exposure.

As the International Honor Organization for Financial Information Students and Professors, Beta Alpha Psi has taken commendable steps to promote literacy across the country. In 2012, BAP developed the BAP International Day of Literacy, the goal of which is to “distribute books to local organizations and teach about the importance of literacy.” Sponsored by KPMG LLP and the KPMG Foundation, the BAP International Day of Literacy occurred for the fourth time on Thursday, August 4, 2016, and Gleim CPA was part of it.
