About

Girls have the right to accept and appreciate their bodies, and are entitled to thrive in communities that invest in their total physical, mental, and emotional wellness. Girls need access to information, resources, and skills to be effective partners in promoting their own healthy development. To help ensure that girls have the support that they need to take charge of their own health, Girls Inc. has launched Girls Inc. Mind+Body‚Ą†, which focuses on four pillars that, according to research, play a major role in fortifying girls’ ability to develop and sustain strong minds and strong bodies. They are: nutrition, physical activity, stress management, and body image.

This program will focus on keeping participants focused on health, nutrition, and staying physically active. This may include creating healthy snacks, playing a sporting activity, etc.

We will be providing programming at Adams Elementary in Costa Mesa on Mondays and Wednesdays for girls in K-6th grades and at College Park Elementary in Costa Mesa on Tuesdays and Thursdays for girls in 3-4th grades. Volunteering one day per week is required but if interested, volunteers can commit to more.
