The Lower Eastside Girls Club (LESGC) connects girls and young women to healthy and successful futures. The state-of-the-art center offers a safe haven with programs in the arts, sciences, leadership, entrepreneurship, and wellness for middle and high school girls. Programs are offered at no cost to girls and their families.
Our mission is to break the cycle of local poverty by training the next generation of ethical, entrepreneurial and environmental leaders. We commit to providing our girls and their community with the tools and experiences they need to overcome and eradicate the barriers that may limit their potential, uplift their communities, and promote systemic equity.
LESGC members perceive opportunity, develop self-confidence, make the right relationship choices, grow academically, value wellness, and have the ability to enter college or the workforce as fully prepared and connected adults.
