At Girls Inc. of Greater Indianapolis, we couldn’t agree more with Maya Angelou’s statement that, “Having courage does not mean that we are unafraid. Having courage and showing courage means we face our fears.” At Girls Inc., we strive to teach girls to face life’s many challenges with courage. We know that the Girls Inc. experience must provide all girls with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes they need to make the best decisions for themselves.

With your help, our girls will have access to these Girls Inc. experiences that will change their lives completely. They will make new friends, learn new ways to manage their feelings, become advocates for other girls, and gain the confidence to pursue their future career goals. The girls will gain the courage to face their fears and stand up for themselves.

As we work to expand our reach in the community and to grow our programs, the need for support is greater than ever. Please consider renewing your support before the end of 2017. By Standing Up For Girls, you provide girls an opportunity to grow into strong, smart, and bold women who will live empowered and courageous lives. But how exactly will we be using your generous gift to fulfill our mission? If you’ve ever wondered what your contribution can do, here is a sneak peek at the way it works:
