Touchstone 2017-18

As August is in full swing, most schools have started here in Indianapolis! We can’t wait for our Girls Inc. girls to be attending school, learning all they can, and participating in our fall programming.

Fall I is scheduled for August 7th through October 6th. We will be running 80 programs with our program partners. Fall II is scheduled for October 23rd through December 15th.

Girls Inc. Day is coming up on Saturday, November 11th. We will be partnering with IUPUI School of Informatics to provide a day full of STEM activities. Any girl who is 9-16 can register to participate. Registration will go live on October 1st. Registration is $5 per girl, and includes all program activities and supplies, a snack, lunch, and Girls Inc. t-shirt. Registration can be found here.

We will be having our usual programming including Work It Out, Girls Inc. Preventing Adolescent Pregnancy, Girls Inc. Operation SMART, Girls Inc. Economic Literacy, Lunch Bunch, Redefining Beauty, Girls Inc. Media Literacy and Girls Inc. Project Bold. Check out to see if your school is offering any of these programs this fall!

The 2017-2018 Young Women in Leadership (YWIL) program is gearing up for another successful year as well! There are quite a few exciting projects planned to kick the year off. The girls will:

  • learn about themselves and how to work together as a group with an off-site teambuilding activity;
  • understand what it truly means to be a leader at our Leadership Development Workshop;
  • meet and network with professional women doing phenomenal work right here in Indianapolis; and
  • give back to our community at our Community Service event.

These events are just the tip of the iceberg for this year’s YWIL program, with many more engaging events in store for the girls. For all interested in joining YWIL for another great program year, there is still time left to apply. Visit www.girlsincindy.org/young-women-leadership to register. For questions or more information, please contact Candice Lofton (clofton@girlsincindy.org). Application deadline is Friday, August 18 but spots are filling quickly, so register today!

Girls Inc. of Greater Indianapolis wishes everyone luck on their upcoming school years!
