We are Girls Inc. of the Valley

Girls Inc. empowers, educates, and guides young people 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 individual – while helping to harness the power already within them. The combination of long-lasting mentoring relationships, a pro-girl environment, and research-based programming equips youth to navigate gender, economic, and social barriers, and grow up healthyeducated, and independent.

*Girls Inc. of the Valley welcomes girls, regardless of their assigned sex at birth, and gender-expansive youth. We are committed to promoting equality and justice by welcoming all youth who experience gender-based oppression (including but not limited to transgender girls, cisgender girls, transmasculine youth, and non-binary individuals).

We are so grateful to The Petit Family Foundation for their support of our Eureka! programming. Their gift will help in funding “Eureka! Strong, Smart and Bold Science for Girls”. This investment into Eureka! will help empower youth to succeed academically and give them the tools to succeed in STEM classes and STEM careers.Eureka! is our intensive, five-year STEM-based program for rising 8th graders all the way to their senior year in high school. The Eureka! “scholars” as we call them, study with professors on campus at UMass in their classrooms and labs, out in the field and beyond. Every year, the program serves 100 students across Holyoke, Chicopee, and Springfield, helping build skills and confidence by incorporating physical fitness, personal development, and college and career readiness. ...
