Girls Inc. inspires all girls to be strong, smart, and bold. The network of local Girls Inc. nonprofit organizations serves girls ages 6-18 at 1,400 sites in 400 cities across the United States and Canada. Our comprehensive approach to whole girl development equips girls to navigate gender, economic, and social barriers and grow up healthy, educated, and independent. These positive outcomes are achieved through three core elements: people â€“ trained staff and volunteers who build lasting, mentoring relationships; environment â€“ girls-only, physically and emotionally safe, where there is a sisterhood of support, high expectations, and mutual respect; and programming â€“ research-based, hands-on and minds-on, age-appropriate, meeting the needs of todayâ€™s girls. Informed by girls and their families, we also advocate for legislation and policies to increase opportunities for all girls. Join us atÂ girlsinc.org.
