Inspiring all girls to be strong, smart, and bold
Girls Incorporated of Greater Philadelphia & Southern New Jersey provides programs to help all girls develop the skills and tools to become women who are strong, smart and bold. Our research-based and developmentally appropriate programs empower girls to think critically about situations, and to use problem solving techniques to produce the best outcomes for themselves and their community. Our programs address every area of a girl's life.
Our programs are developed by our National Office and implemented throughout the country by local Girls Inc. affiliates. The National Resource Center of Girls Incorporated (NRC) is the organization's research, information services and training site.
