Girls Inc. Westchester‘s programming focuses on the development of the whole girl.
They set girls, primarily of color, up with mentoring relationships and researched-based programming to help girls overcome obstacles and achieve their goals, lead fulfilling and productive lives, break the cycle of poverty, and become role models in their community.
Girls Inc. Westchester Programs are targeted toward girls ages 9 to 18 with a focus on the middle and high school years, the developmentally crucial stages when having a girls-only space to share, build confidence, and interact with positive role models can make all the difference.
Girls Inc. Westchester Teaches Media Literacy; Violence Prevention and Safety; Financial Literacy; Leadership and Community Action; Health and Sexuality; College and Career Readiness; and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). By helping girls to think critically about the world, avoid at-risk circumstances, confront and overcome challenges, and envision their own potential, Girls Inc. Westchester gives our girls the promise of a brighter future.
Girls Inc. Westchester Facilitators have been extensively trained to deliver programs that are engaging, relevant and fun. In partnership with local schools and community-based organizations, we reach the girls who need us most by providing instructors who understand their needs.
