About Girls Inc. of NYC
Our mission is to help girls develop the capacity to achieve academically, lead healthy and physically active lives, manage peer pressure, navigate media messages, make sound financial decisions, and discover or expand their interest in the STEM/STEAM fields.
Annually, over 8,500 girls attend our life-transforming programs and experiences, which are delivered by trained professionals in a positive all-girl environment.
We partner with schools and community-based organizations in New York City’s most under-served communities including the South Bronx, East Harlem, Astoria, and Staten Island. Trained staff and volunteers build mentoring relationships in girls-only spaces where girls find a sisterhood of support with mutual respect and high expectations. Research-based programs provide girls with the skills and knowledge to overcome obstacles and improve academic performance.
All proceeds will support the Sporting Chance Program where girls develop a life-long love of sports.
