The Readergirlz website has a posted mission statement, one that I have to give two thumbs up. (http://readergirlz.blogspot.com)
"The readergirlz mission is to promote teen literacy and corresponding social service.
readergirlz is the cutting-edge literacy and social media project for teens, awarded the National Book Award for Innovations in Reading. It is a nonprofit volunteer organization."
There's more. Go to the site and click on the 'Our Mission' tab. Better yet, check out the new post on the Scarlett series by Maureen Johnson.
