Girls Inc. of Alameda County Always Hard at Work

While our programs are temporarily suspended as we protect our community by honoring current shelter in place guidelines, Girls Inc. program staff have shifted gears and are participating in intensive professional development. With training sessions set up via videoconferencing, staff are increasing their skills in STEM learning, equity practices, trauma response, and literacy. Even though our staff is disappointed that they can’t see their students, they show up to work committed to making the world a better place for girls.

The Need

Too many girls in Alameda County grow up facing gender limitations, racial assumptions, and restricted opportunity due to economic status. Despite the rising prosperity and promise of the San Francisco Bay Area, these barriers make it harder for girls to uncover their strengths and realize their potential.
