Kids Read To Lead with NFL Alumni Association
Education is the foundation of our children's success, and every child should have access to building the literacy skills necessary to become the next generation of leaders. When we invest in our children, we invest in our future. I am optimistic that the 'Read To Lead' launch will help bridge learning gaps exacerbated by the pandemic, and make sure children have quick access to the resources they need.

Smart Kidz Club proudly served as the exclusive early education partner of the NFL Alumni Association's Caring for Kids initiative from 2020 to 2023. Together, the NFL Alumni Association and Smart Kidz Club introduced a groundbreaking national reading and learning app for children titled Kids Read To Lead with NFL Alumni Association. This initiative, launched under the Read To Lead campaign, aimed to raise awareness about the critical importance of reading for all children in the United States. By providing widespread access to this app for kids and families nationwide, the partnership sought to empower young learners and foster a culture of literacy across the country.

The Read To Lead App

Previously available for download on both the App Store and Play Store, the Read To Lead App was meticulously crafted based on the principles of learning and development. Designed for children aged 2 to 11 years, it provided a thoughtfully curated library featuring narrated and illustrated ebooks tailored to each child's reading level and interests. Free from distractions such as ads and animations, the app showcased Smart Kidz Club's extensive collection of original content, with an emphasis on knowledge-based books.

Each ebook within the app was narrated by a human expressive voice and meticulously categorized by grade, age, reading level, and topic. Additionally, the app offered built-in engagement features, including rewards, badges, and competitive challenges, to inspire and motivate children to engage with reading. With offline access functionality, the app ensured children's safety and extended its reach to even the most remote areas.

The Read To Lead App served as a comprehensive educational tool, encouraging young learners to explore the world and develop robust literacy skills from the comfort of their homes. Its features included Read Along functionality, Play Activities, Quizzes, Flashcards for Math Practice, Reward systems, Wall of Fame recognition, Leaderboards, and Badges, providing a holistic learning experience for children of all ages and abilities.
