Girls Inc. of Greater Philadelphia & Southern New Jersey is pleased to announce our new virtual initiative – Learning with Girls Inc. at H. O. M. E. (Hands-on Opportunities, Minds-on Experiences). We are excited to take our virtual programs to the next level! Over the past few months, we have launched a variety of virtual program opportunities for girls ages five through 18. We have offered over 300 virtual classes, mentoring experiences and career exploration sessions to provide educational, recreational and wellness programs to our participants.
We are committed to ensuring that girls and young women have the tools and skills they need to succeed. Our programs are designed with each girl in mind, helping them develop the attitude and aptitude necessary to make healthy decisions and achieve their academic and professional goals.
The Learning with Girls Inc. at H. O. M. E. initiative takes our outcomes-tested Girls Inc. experience online, providing live and recorded digital opportunities. The programs will continue to focus on healthy living, academic enrichment and leadership development all facilitated by trained professionals. Consistent with our in-person programs, Learning with Girls Inc. @ H.O.M.E. provides:
- Trained program leaders
- Interactive, structured weekly sessions
- Strong, Smart and Bold Curricula with a specific focus on Healthy Living (Strong), Academic Engagement and Success (Smart), and Life Skills (Bold)
- Group mentoring experiences
- Career exploration and panel discussions
- Hands-on & minds-on activities that can be completed safely at home
Finally, Learning with Girls Inc. at H. O. M. E. will bring together girls from diverse communities that would not normally have the opportunity to build a sisterhood. Girls will make new friends online and receive mentoring support from caring adults.
This guide will help parents, participants, facilitators and partners understand our virtual program model, as it will now be a pillar of our program delivery strategy. We have a proven track record of providing research-based, outcomes-tested enrichment opportunities to thousands of girls each year. We look forward to welcoming many more girls and young women into our Girls Inc. community.
