The Girls Inc. Experience empowers girls to succeed. Girls Inc. provides girls with trusting, mentoring relationships; a girls-only environment, and research-based, hands-on programming. Three critical goals drive our programming – that girls lead healthy lives, succeed academically, and have life skills needed that prepare them for adulthood. To meet our goal of girls leading healthy lives, we work to ensure that girls have the skills, knowledge, and support to take charge of their health and increase healthy behaviors throughout their lives.

Through sports, girls learn important life skills such as teamwork, leadership and confidence. Research shows that girls active in sports during adolescence and young adulthood are 20% less likely to get breast cancer later in life.  Girls who pursue sports throughout school are 92% less likely to get involved with drugs, 80% less likely to experience adolescent pregnancy and 3 times more likely to graduate high school than non-athletes.

OUTREACH

Outreach in our Community Schools

Promote Educational Opportunities & Economic Independence


Our Outreach initiative uses Girls Inc. National research-based curricula that fights toward improving access to quality educational experiences for underserved girls, for whom such opportunities are critical in overcoming income inequality and other challenges to reaching their potential. Too many girls are not receiving the educational opportunities and support they need to achieve their dreams. In addition, punitive and exclusionary school discipline practices often push girls out of the classroom instead of providing them with the support they need to be successful in school. When Girls Inc. is present in their classrooms, we can assure a safe, girl-only & pro-girl environment that encourages openness and supports building each other up to break down barriers that may otherwise hold us back.
