Happy New Year! We are excited to start off another great year of programs here at Girls Inc.! 2017 is bringing some lofty goals for our organization and girls of the Greater Indianapolis community. Here are a few things to look forward to in 2017.
We are excited to be expanding our annual Girls Inc. Day to two events this year! Our Girls Inc. Day is packed with stimulating hands-on STEM activities, such as coding, creating graphics, and solving real-world problems with technology. Our first Girls Inc. day will be in the spring. Stay tuned for more information to come!
Our Young Women in Leadership (YWIL) program is currently in its third year. We have 21 young ladies participating in the program. In March, a few of these women will participate in a trip to Philadelphia. There, they will be exposed to colleges in the community, as well as the culture and history in the area. Be on the lookout for some recaps of the trip in April!
Summer camp planning is well underway! Summer camp will be hosted June 12th through July 7th. We are looking forward to working with many great partners to provide programs at camp, such as fitness, nutrition, STEM and more! We will also be heading out into the community to take various field trips to local businesses to learn more about careers and economics. One of our favorite events here at Girls Inc. is the annual Economic Literacy Carnival, where girls are challenged to create their own business plans and products. We look forward to seeing what the girls will come up with this year!
As we jump into the new year, we are looking forward to continuing our partnerships with many great schools and community organizations. Here is to another year of inspiring girls to be strong, smart and bold!
