Girls, Inc.’s goal is to inspire girls to be strong, smart and bold. One direct way to impact this is through literacy. The money provided through the Junior League of Huntsville community grant created a “Reading Room” for the girls to spend time in a tech free space, focused on reading.
The Junior League also helps host a book club each month for students in 2nd through 6th grade. In this specific program, the JLH provides volunteers to serve as reading room chaperones, help with activities and serve as the book club mentors for girls whose mothers cannot participate in the program. The JLH Girls, Inc. book club hosts about 24 girls each month during the school year.
