Girls Inc. Westchester programs encourage girls to ask questions about themselves and the world, and to believe in the power of their own voices. From there, we know they can go on to do anything and be anything.
All Girls Inc. Westchester programs are for girls only. Our programs are targeted at girls between the ages of 9 and 18 but we currently focus mostly on girls in their middle school and high school years – that developmentally crucial stage when having a safe space to embrace who you are and define who you want to be can make all the difference.
Some of our programs are offered in 10-12-week cycles, others as 2-4 session workshops, and still others as day-long conferences. All of our programs have been developed by the Girls Incorporated National Resource Center, the country's largest and most comprehensive research center on girls; all have been tested nationally to confirm their impact; and all are conducted in girls-only spaces by facilitators who are trained to understand girls’ needs. Focused on prevention, leadership and education, Girls Inc. programs are proven to make a difference in girls’ lives.
Thank you to all who came out in support of our 3rd annual Power of the Purse fundraising gala! The night was a tremendous success that featured our incredible Girls Leadership Council and Strong, Smart and Bold men and women from across the County.
