Young Women of Promise, Inc. will launch, Promise to Read, a literacy initiative in January of 2021.
It is our goal to create a culture of reading for children by providing inspiring books for them to read and own. Our efforts will be designed to boost children's early reading, social emotional growth and school readiness.
We will work with schools throughout our eastern North Carolina region. Teachers will host "Promise Book Clubs," at their respective school or agency. Students will receive monthly book selections at little or no cost at all.
Congratulations to Brenda Griffin, a fourth grade teacher at Pink Hill Elementary School. Her students are our first Promises Book Club. Her students will each receive a copy of The Amazing Harry Houdini.
Congratulations to Earlean Rivers, Executive Director of Diversity Nurtures Achievement (DNA) Community Youth Center in Warsaw, North Carolina. Her students will receive a copy of the book, Martin Luther King, Jr. Warrior for Peace.
