The Girls Inc. mission is to inspire all girls to be strong, smart, and bold. We put our mission into practice through the Girls Inc. experience that equips girls to navigate gender, economic and social barriers and grow into healthy, educated and independent adults.
The Girls Inc. experience is designed to lead to these long term outcomes:
These essential elements provide a holistic approach that is grounded in a belief in girls’ rights and abilities. A belief in girls’ rights and abilities is the foundation for all of the essential elements. At different ages, developmental stages, or happenings in life, one essential element may be more dominant or present for that moment or period of time. However, that element is always supported and enhanced by the other elements.
