Mission Statement

Girls Incorporated is a national youth organization dedicated to helping girls become strong, smart, and bold. We provide programs to girls after school, on weekends, and during the summer through our network of affiliates. In addition, we conduct research on girls' issues and advocate for girls.

Description

Unlike other youth organizations, Girls Incorporated has a dual focus. We work to help girls become strong, smart, and bold so that they can tackle the challenges they face. At the same time, we work to change the world to make it a more equitable place for girls. We prepare girls to be the leaders of the twenty-first century, and we're determined to make the twenty-first century a time when girls can lead.

Girls Incorporated also has the only research center dedicated exclusively to girls. Our National Resource Center, located in Indianapolis, is the nation's most extensive clearinghouse on girls' issues. Our research staff conducts research on girls and evaluates our programs to make sure they are effective.

Our center is a place where girls learn that they can be whatever they want to be, where their strengths are valued, where they are treated with respect and honesty, and where they can assume new responsibilities and take risks. We also have a gym, a TEEN room, and a resource center.
