The bus drops the members (ages 5-18) off at Girls Inc. after they release from school. They enjoy a healthy snack and an opportunity to work on their homework. We also offer several programs, including some of the Identity Programs. Each month has a theme that all programs are planned around. All themes relate to helping the girls learn to live strong, smart, and bold lifestyles.
This program is designed for girls 10 and older to work on respect, responsibility, trust, healthy lifestyles, life skills, ownership, economics, career building skills, hygiene and grooming, self-esteem, positive body image, diversity, and acting as role models for the younger Girls Inc. members.
