Inspiring all girls to be strong, smart, and bold.

Today’s girls have it tough. In greater Indianapolis alone:

  • Girls are just as likely as boys to enjoy science class.
    But half as likely to pursue science careers.
  • 38% of girls think they’re overweight. Medically, only 10% are.
  • One third of girls (in 6th to 10th grades) are victims of bullying.
    Increasingly, bullying is online or via text.
  • 40% of girls think speaking in class is a threat to their emotional safety.

Since 1969, Girls Inc. of Greater Indianapolis has set out to reverse these disturbing trends and promote a community that’s positive and empowering for girls. Find out how our programs do this.

Our mission is simple: to inspire all girls to be strong, smart, and bold. Our programs free girls from gender stereotypes, truly allowing them to be themselves. We empower girls to be confident in their own skin, prepared for their futures, proud of who they are, and ready to take their place in the world.

By partnering with schools and community organizations, we can offer our educational and empowering programs to girls at their facilities. By utilizing teams of well-trained volunteers to lead these programs, we minimize our overhead expenses. Our innovative approach allows us to maximize our reach in the greater Indianapolis community, serving thousands of girls with quality programming each year. Learn more about what we do.
