By the Women, For the Girls is your opportunity to lead by example by joining with other amazing women in support of Girls Inc. of Greater Indianapolis.

Our programs are led by volunteers who model responsible, confident womanhood. Charleigh, age 10, was inspired by her program facilitators to give of herself to help others. She was excited to learn that her Girls Inc. Economic Literacy program leaders were volunteers who work for companies that allow them to take time off to be involved in the community. She shared that her mom would like to volunteer at her school, but is not allowed to take time off from work.

“The most important thing I learned is that if I go to college and get a good job, I can give back,” Charleigh said.

Challenging girls to think about college, careers, giving back to others and being prepared for economic independence are just a few ways Girls Inc. equips them to become the young women they deserve to be. Your generosity provides girls with tools that help them believe in themselves, take risks, appreciate their bodies, develop positive relationships, be safe in the world, and so much more.

You too can be a positive role model. Through participation in our By the Women, For the Girls matching gift challenge you can triple the impact of your gift.
