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).

In honor of Hispanic and Latinx Heritage Month we’re highlighting a few of the Valley’s amazing Hispanic and Latinx community members, starting with Carlos Vega. Carlos Vega immigrated to Massachusetts from Ecuador with his family when he was just 5 years old. Having grown up in Holyoke in the 50s and 60s, Carlos became a dedicated advocate for social justice reform, both locally and nationally, constantly amplifying the voices of the Latino community. His work spanned various areas, including housing rights, healthcare, education, employment, and community safety. Carlos was a founder of Nueva Esperanza, a local development organization dedicated to meeting the needs of the entire Puerto Rican/Afro-Caribbean Community and served as their Executive Director until 2007. He also founded the Carlos Vega Fund for Social Justice, which offers grants to support organizations and individuals working to make a more equitable community through social justice initiatives. During his life, Carlos kept an incredible archive of the Latino lived experience that now lives at the Wistariahurst Museum. The Carlos Vega Collection of Latino History in Holyoke is available for use by the public by appointment. You can contact Penni Martorell, Holyoke City Historian and Wistariahurst Museum Curator, by email or phone at 413-322-5660. Vega’s positive impact on his community was celebrated in 2012 with the dedication of a park in his honor. The Carlos Vega Park is located at Hamilton St. and Clemente St. and has domino benches, a water spray pad, walkways, and green space for picnics or unwinding. Fun fact: Carlos Vega’s granddaughter, Courtney Joaquin, is a current Girls Inc. Eureka! High School Facilitator, and Carlos’s daughter-in-law, Debra Vega, is a current board member and Vice Chair of the Girls Inc. Board of Directors. ... See MoreSee Less
