We are Girls Inc. of the Valley

Girls Inc. empowers, educates, and guides girls forward, helping them navigate the challenges in their lives. Through intentional and effective programming, both in school and after school, we focus on the development of the whole girl – while helping to harness the power already within her. 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 healthyeducated, and independent.

Watch our video to learn more about how we help girls to become strong, smart, and bold.
