Girls Inc. inspires all girls to be strong, smart, and bold. Working in the U.S. and Canada, trained staff and volunteers build lasting, mentoring relationships in girls-only spaces that are physically and emotionally safe, encouraging girls to find a sisterhood of support with shared drive, mutual respect, and high expectations.
Hands-on, research-based programs provide girls with the skills and knowledge to set goals, overcome obstacles, and improve academic performance. Informed by girls and their families, Girls Inc. also works with policymakers to advocate for legislation and initiatives that increase opportunities for girls. At Girls Inc., girls grow up healthy, educated, and independent.
