Girls Inc. of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey
Our mission is to inspire all girls to be strong, smart, and bold, through direct service and advocacy. In partnership with schools and at our Girls Inc. of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey center, we focus on the development of the whole girl. She learns to value herself, take risks, and discover and develop her inherent strengths. The combination of long-lasting mentoring relationships, a pro-girl environment, and research-based programming equips girls to navigate gender, economic, and social barriers, and grow up healthy, educated, and independent. We offer programs for girls ages 5 – 18. These programs focus on leadership and community action, STEM, early reading literacy, financial literacy, healthy decision making, and media literacy. We serve over 2,900 girls annually in the greater Philadelphia region working with schools, community partners, the juvenile justice system, corporations and approximately 200 volunteers.
