Every October, Girls Inc. of Jacksonville acknowledges and celebrates the United Nation’s International Day of the Girl with activities, guest speakers and programming that allows our girls to learn about what life is like as a girl around the world! Too often are girls globally not offered the same opportunities and support as their boy counterparts. Girls Inc. is working to change that dynamic every day, not just on International Day of the Girl. Click Here to make a tax-deductible donation to support the work we do every day!
