Programs for Girls

Our Programs

Girls Inc. of Greater Indianapolis inspires greater Indianapolis girls to be strong, smart, and bold by delivering engaging, empowering programs to girls in outreach locations. Girls can find our programs, which are delivered by trained volunteer facilitators, at schools, youth organizations, libraries, churches, and other community centers throughout greater Indianapolis.

Girls Inc. program curriculum focuses on issues that all girls face like conflict management, college and career planning, and body image.

Girls Inc. programs each align with one of our three categories, which reflect the key words in our mission: Strong, Healthy Relationships; Smart College and Career Planning, and Bold, Empowered Girls. Girls Inc. also ensures that our programs are age-appropriate by customizing the content for each of our age groups: 6-8, 9-11, 12-14, and 15-18. All of our programs are split into one-hour sessions and are delivered over the course of four to six weeks.

Our programs are offered on a rotating basis throughout the year, as Girls Inc. divides the year into fall I, fall II, winter, spring, and summer cycles of programming.

Our programs include:
