About Girls Inc. of Jacksonville

Location:

100 Festival Park Ave, Jacksonville, FL 32202, US

Mission Statement

GIRLS INC. INSPIRES ALL GIRLS TO BE STRONG, SMART, AND BOLD

Description

Girls Inc. of Jacksonville focuses on the development of the whole girl. She learns to value herself, take risks, and discover and develop her inherent strengths. The combination of long-lasting mentoring relationships, a pro-girl environment, and research-based programming equips girls to navigate gender, economic and social barriers, and grow up healthy, educated, and independent.

Girls Inc. girls live healthy and active lifestyles and are less likely to engage in risky behaviors; they are eager to learn, are successful in school, and are more likely to graduate from post-secondary education; they display diligence, perseverance, and resilience skills throughout their lives.

LOCAL HISTORY

Girls Incorporated of Jacksonville is an affiliate of a national organization that was founded in 1864 to provide life-changing tools, resources, and support to at-risk girls from low income families. Nationally recognized since 1945, Girls Inc. has focused its efforts on responding to the changing needs of girls and helping break female generational cycles of poverty. We opened our doors in Jacksonville on May 25, 1970 as the Girls Club, which was a pilot project of Pilot Club International. In 1989, following the lead of our national organization, the Girls Club of Jacksonville became Girls Incorporated of Jacksonville. Since this time, the Agency has implemented the research-based healthy living, academic enrichment, and life skills development programs that were created by the Girls Incorporated National Research Center.
