RESEARCH-BASED
PROGRAMMING

The Girls Inc. Experience empowers girls to succeed. Girls Inc. provides girls with trusting, mentoring relationships; a girls-only environment, and research-based, hands-on programming. Three critical goals drive our programming – that girls lead healthy lives, succeed academically, and have the necessary life skills to prepare them for adulthood. To meet our goal of girls leading healthy lives, we work to ensure that girls have the skills, and knowledge they need to take charge of their health throughout their lives.

Our age and developmentally appropriate programs for girls in grades K-12 include:

  • Operation SMART: inspires girls to develop enthusiasm for and skills in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Through hands-on activities and interactions with those in STEM careers, girls explore, ask questions, and solve problems.
  • Project Bold: teaches girls the skills and strategies to lead safer lives in their homes, in relationships, in their communities, and online. Girls learn specific techniques and how to seek out and talk to caring adults about personal violence.
  • Financial Literacy: Through age-appropriate components, girls learn to manage money, invest, and begin to develop an appreciation for global economics. Girls as young as six explore how the economy affects us locally and globally and develop skills needed to be economically independent.
  • Friendly PEER-suasion: helps girls to develop skills to resist pressure to use harmful substances such as alcohol, tobacco, household chemicals, and other drugs, as well as learn healthy ways to manage stress and confront peer, media, and other pressures.
  • Media Literacy: increases girls’ awareness of the scope and power of the media and the effects of its messages on girls and women. They learn to analyze critically what they see and hear in the media, advocate for change in entertainment, news, and advertising media, and create images that are more realistic and reflective of their lives.
  • Leadership and Community Action: builds leadership skills and creates lasting social change through community action projects, while celebrating the heritage of girls and women as leaders to develop awareness of themselves as community resources and trustees of the common good.
  • Sporting Chance: encourages girls to learn to appreciate an active lifestyle as they develop movement and athletic skills, cooperative and competitive spirit, health awareness, and interest in sports and adventure.
  • She Votes!: teaches girls about the importance of using their voices to vote and advocate for change.
  • Social and Emotional Learning: develops strong emotional intelligence in girls that helps ensure their academic, social and emotional success as well as prepare them for success in the 21 st century workplace.

We also offer specialized programming that helps develop leadership skills, new interests, and an introduction to potential future career paths that match what a girl is good at and what she cares about. We also offer specialized programming in cooking, nutrition, physical fitness, STEM, life skills, college and career planning, financial literacy, and more!
