News and Events

This week marks the sixth and final week of sharing the Girls Inc. Experience! We’ve discussed the importance of Girls-Only Environments, strong Mentoring Relationships, Intentional Programming, Researched-Based Curricula, and hands-on Interactive Activities! This week we will show you what Sustained Exposure is all about and how it benefits our girls.

Sustained Exposure to programming and connections with Girls Inc. will eventually increase a girl’s opportunity for positive outcomes and reduce potential negative outcomes. Many girls that enroll in Girls Inc. programs in their schools or other clubs around Indianapolis will continue to enroll in programs and learn more about being a strong, smart and bold person. Some girls will have the opportunity to begin learning in Girls Inc. programs from the age of 6 years old until they graduate high school!

Some signs of Sustained Exposure are:

• Girls continuously enrolling in programs;
• Long-term outreach and school partnerships that help the organization remain in contact with girls;
• Girls Inc. girls qualifying for Girls Inc. Scholars Program;
• Girls participating in a variety of programs and activities;
• Girls transitioning from school and outreach programs to center-based programs and events to more comprehensive programming;
• Staff providing maximum time to ensure mentoring relationships are stable and strong;
• Older girls thinking Girls Inc. is a fun place to be and telling their friends about it;
• Generations of girls from the same family enrolling in Girls Inc. programming
