School-age girls ranging in ages 11-19 are involved. Any girl regardless of disability, ethnicity, race/color, socioeconomic status or religion can join. It is a faith-based organization that empowers middle and high school girls to succeed in life. The organization discusses real-life issues and how to best handle them. G.I.R.L.S. Club creates an environment that focuses on the whole-child, in particular the social, behavioral, and intellectual aspects of growth. It serves as an outlet and a safe-haven where girls can get developmental needs met.
