Earlier this month Girls Inc. of Jacksonville President & CEO, Darlene Vaughn, was invited to speak on WJCT’s First Coast Connect with Melissa Ross. Darlene and Melissa discussed that now more than ever girls in our community need our support and encouragement. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, a lot of girls are facing learning loss, a digital divide and lack of access to technology. “How do we best meet the needs of those girls?” Darlene continues, “not only the girls that we currently serve but also expanding our operation so that we can serve more girls.”
Girls Inc. of Jacksonville is positioned to truly begin to grow and build upon our previous successes and be able to provide more girls in Jacksonville with the Girls Inc. Experience, inspiring them to be strong, smart, and bold.
