Review for Girls Incorporated Of The Washington Dc Metropolitan Area, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Interning for Girls Inc was an amazing experience. I was able to watch 40 girls open up and grow as individuals during the six week summer STEM academy. The welcoming environment encourages self-exploration and learning. Girls Inc DC brings in a ton of different partners throughout the summer, exposing the girls to different subjects, career paths, and activities. The program takes a holistic approach in developing strong, smart, and bold women. Aside from STEM, the program includes sports and health, empowerment sessions, and much more. At the end of the six weeks it was obvious the positive impact that the programming, friendships, and mentor relationships had on all of the participants. The staff works together and supports each other really well. As an intern, you will get to work on a variety of different tasks with the girls and in the office. Overall, Girls Inc DC exceeded my expectations and I had an unforgettable summer working for it. I hope to stay in touch and involved with Girls Inc in the future.
