Girls of Admiration Reading Intiative is a book club for young minority females in the Cumberland County Area. Our mission statement is to "Change lives and our community through reading, friendship, and good character. This club is to increase reading and reading comphrehension skills on state exams, decrease violence among teen girls, give girls something to do in their community, and start a sisterhood. Each month every girl receives a book and the next month we come back together to discuss the meaning and how it impacts our lives. We will also host community campaigns and events such as reading to children.
