Our Programs

Girls Inc.'s research-based curricula and relationship-focused programs are delivered by trained, mentoring professionals in positive, all-girl environments. They spark girls' interest in science, technology, engineering and math, promote drug and pregnancy prevention, foster self-esteem, and teach skills such as stress management, financial literacy, and community leadership. Some last just one day, others up to 12 weeks, but all are designed to empower girls to transform their self-image and realize their potential as friends, leaders and entrepreneurs.

 

Operation Smart

Girls develop enthusiasm for and skills in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Through hands-on activities, girls explore, ask questions, persist, and solve problems.

Media Literacy

Girls increase their awareness of the scope and power of the media and the effects of media messages on girls and women. They learn to analyze what they see and hear in the media and advocate for change in entertainment, news, and advertising.

Economic Literacy

Girls learn about money and the economy, including how to manage, invest, and save money and how to help others through philanthropy.

Leadership and Community Action

Girls build leadership skills and create lasting social change through community action projects. With support from women in their community, girls celebrate the heritage of girls and women as leaders and social change agents.
