Gifts to Girls Inc. are put to work to create the Girls Inc. experience, that consists of people, an environment, and programming that, together, enable girls to succeed:
- The people are trained staff and volunteers who build lasting, mentoring relationships, and peers who share their drive and aspirations.
- The environment is girls-only, physically and emotionally safe; there is a sisterhood of support, high expectations, and respect.
- The research-based programming is hands-on, minds-on, and meets the needs of today’s girls to provide age-appropriate information and knowledge so girls make decisions leading to healthy lives; succeed academically; and develop life skills to prepare for adulthood.
When you invest, you help equip girls to navigate gender, economic, and social barriers and grow up healthy, educated, and independent. Girls build confidence and embrace positive decision-making to take charge of their health and well-being, and achieve academic, personal, and career goals.
