•      As an affiliate of our national organization, we can offer Girls Inc. Identity programs to our members.  All of our identity programs have been researched and piloted through our Girls Inc. National Resource Center.  These proven effective programs help us deliver the best possible experience to the girls we serve.

    Economic Literacy

    Girls learn to manage money, invest, and begin to develop an appreciation for global economics.  Girls as young as six explore how the economy affects us locally and globally and develop skills needed to be economically independent.

    Friendly PEERsuasion

    Girls develop skills to resist pressure to use harmful substances such as alcohol, tobacco, household chemicals, and other drugs.  In this peer-education program, girls ages 11 to 14 learn healthy ways to manage stress and confront peer, media, and other pressures and then assume the roles of PEERsuaders for young girls.

    Leadership and Community Action

    Girls build their leadership skills and create lasting social change through community action projects. In Discovery®, girls ages 9 to 11 celebrate the heritage of girls and women as leaders and develop awareness of themselves as community resources and trustees of the common good. In In Our Own Hands®, girls ages 12 to 14 deepen their understanding of girls and women as social change agents and of leadership as a collective process grounded in belonging to and having responsibility for one’s community.

    Media Literacy

    Girls increase their awareness of the scope and power of the media and the effects of media messages on girls and women. They learn to analyze critically what they see and hear in the media, advocate for change in entertainment, news, and advertising media, and create images that are more realistic and reflective of their lives

    Operation SMART (Science, Math, and Relevant Technology)

    Girls develop enthusiasm for and skills in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).  Through hands-on activities, girls explore, ask questions, and solve problems.  They also consider careers in these fields by interacting with women and men pursuing such careers.

    Preventing Adolescent Pregnancy

    Girls acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to take charge of and to make informed, thoughtful decisions about their sexual health. Girls learn to identify ways and reasons to avoid early pregnancy and to prevent sexually transmitted infections, including HIV.

    Project BOLD

    Girls learn skills and strategies to lead safer lives in their homes, in relationships, in their communities, and online. Girls learn specific self-defense techniques and how to seek out and talk to caring adults about personal violence. Older girls also take on a community action project to advocate for a safer world for all women and girls. 

    Sporting Change

    Girls learn to appreciate an active lifestyle as they develop movement and athletic skills, cooperative and competitive spirit, health awareness, and interest in sports and adventure.  Girls also explore career opportunities related to sports and experience the benefits and excitement of taking healthy risks.
