In 2018, Girls Inc. served over 7,000 girls living in under-served, and under-resourced communities and often attending under-performing school in the Metropolitan St. Louis area.
At Girls Inc. we believe that each child has unique emotional, spiritual, and physical potential; the cultivation of this potential is our highest priority. Through our Outreach and Center based programs, Girls Inc. opens opportunities and gives girls the information, skills, strategies and resources they need to make good decisions, solve problems, meet their own needs and lead others. These programs include:
Economic literacy designed to develop age-appropriate skills critical to being financially savvy and to becoming economically independent adults. Friendly PEERsuasion targeting the years during which girls begin to more fully experience and respond to influence and pressure from their peers to participate in risky behaviors, i.e. substance-abuse; and Project Bold where Girls learn skills and strategies to lead safer lives in their homes, in relationships, in their communities, and online. It is through these activities and others that, girls Inc. girls will grow up healthy, educated and independent and break the cycle of poverty, so they can lead change in their communities.
