Girls Incorporated of the Northern Sacramento Valley
Girls Incorporated of the Northern Sacramento Valley seeks to transform girls’ views of themselves and help them recognize the endless stream of opportunities that exist. Girls ages 6-18 are taught to be strong, smart, and bold through life-changing programs and experiences that help them navigate gender, economic, and social barriers. Research-based curricula, delivered by trained, mentoring professionals in a positive all-girl environment, equip girls to achieve academically, lead healthy and physically active lives, manage money, navigate media messages and discover an interest in science, technology, engineering and math. Girls Inc. offices are often located in low-income areas and provide a weekly average of 30 hours of after-school, weekend, and summer activities. Programs address math and science education, pregnancy and drug abuse prevention, media literacy, adolescent health, violence prevention, and sports participation.
