Inspiring all girls to be Strong, Smart and Bold.
Girls Incorporated of Omaha provides educational, recreational and cultural opportunities after school and all summer long for girls ages 5-18.We have two centers - one in North Omaha and one in South Omaha. We provide safe, reliable transportation from area schools to our centers. We do "pick ups" from over 40 local schools. Our centers have libraries, teen centers, and computer labs. We have a playground, a gym, a woodshop, and an art room with a kiln. On an average school day, we serve 180 to 200 girls. During the summer months, that number swells to near 300 daily. Last year, we served over 884 girls in our centers and over 4,800 girls through outreach programs. We provide gender-specific programs in the following core areas: Career & Life Planning; Health & Sexuality; Leadership & Community Action; Sports & Adventure; Self Reliance & Life Skills; and Culture & Heritage. On any given day, one group of girls might be taking African dance lessons in the gym. Another group of girls will be working on their soccer skills on the sports field in preparation for their game on Saturday. One group of girls might be learning about how to open a checking account. Another group of girls will be competing in a spelling bee and yet another group will be at computers, working on graphic layout skills. On some days, there are "all center" activities where we will bus all of the girls from both centers to The Rose to see a play or to the Qwest Center to see "Disney on Ice."
Every day after school we provide homework support and tutoring. We provide a hot meal during the school year. During the summer we provide breakfast, lunch, and snacks. We offer individual and family counseling. We are staffed with caring adults who can create a nurturing, positive environment for the girls.
