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).
