Mission:
The mission of Girls Incorporated of New York City is to inspire all girls to be strong, smart, and bold. We have a sharp focus on education and an unrelenting dedication to the girls of New York City. We reach over 2,500 girls each year, with an emphasis on reaching girls in neighborhoods with high rates of poverty and crime.

Evidence-based and age-phased Girls Inc. programs focus on: economic literacy, media literacy, science, math & technology, health & sexuality, violence prevention & self defense, sports & wellness and leadership development.

Our programs for girls ages 6 – 18 are critical supplements to help our girls graduate and pursue college or vocational training. Girls who stay in school will have greater earning potential and independence and build stable families. Through participation in our programs, girls learn the skills to become leaders in their communities, leading to exponential change

Girls Incorporated of New York City was created in 1998 as an independent affiliate of the national Girls Inc. organization. We reach girls through partnering with schools, city agencies and community based organizations to deliver innovative programs during the school day and after school hours. This year, we will reach over 2,500 girls in over 20 New York City locations ranging from Far Rockaway, to the East Village, to the South Bronx.
