Girls continue to encounter significant obstacles to their well-being and success.

The Girls Inc. Experience consists of people, an environment, and programming that - together - empowers girls to succeed. The people are trained staff and volunteers who build lasting, mentoring relationships, and peers who share their drives and aspirations.
The environment is girls-only, physically and emotionally safe; there is a sisterhood of support, high expectations, and respect.
The programming is research-based, hands-on, minds-on, and meets the needs of today's girls to provide the age-appropriate information and knowledge so girls can make decisions leading to healthy lives; succeed academically; and develop life skills to prepare for adulthood.
