Mission Statement

The mission of Girls First is to build character, instill a positive sense of self, and provide tangible life skills through a creative curriculum of arts exploration, academic reinforcement, and emotional learning.


Girls First provides a safe, stable environment where students practice respect for themselves and others, exercise appropriate interactions with peers and adults, discover new skills and talents, and develop tools that will allow them to achieve greater success in school and beyond.


Historically, enrollment comprised girls mainly from Gotwals Elementary, Hancock Elementary, and various other Norristown Area School District schools. This year, we have returned to four-day In-person programming on-site and opened up the roster to any student with reliable transportation to our program site located at 1208 Green Street. We serve a diverse population of African-American, Hispanic, and Caucasian families. A significant number of the girls reside in the local Norristown community.
