What We Do
The Spitfire Club seeks to create a world in which every girl feels empowered to be the strong and capable protagonist of her own story. We're an extracurricular book club for girls, structured around curriculum based on a carefully selected collection of children's books featuring strong, diverse, female protagonists. We believe that, by creating demand for and building community around diverse, girl-positive books, we can help girls nurture their love of reading and their love of self.
Spitfire partners with outside of school time programs (schools, recreation centers, libraries and similar groups) to offer Spitfire Clubs on a regular basis. The Spitfire Club is also piloting curriculum for "DIY" Spitfire Clubs that are available for public use.
