Our First-Ever College Shower Car Parade!

To celebrate our graduating seniors, Girls Inc. of Alameda County launched the first-ever College Shower Car Parade! 25 girls in our Girls CAN! (College Access Now) program are graduating from high school this month and heading to post-secondary education in the fall. To celebrate their achievement, staff drove decorated cars to our girls’ homes and surprised them with a backpack full of essentials they’ll need for college, all while practicing social-distancing guidelines. Congratulations to all our seniors!

Our Impact

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.

Girls Inc. of Alameda County’s model creates opportunities for success. We equip girls to defy limitations and stereotypes, attend college, break the cycle of poverty, and move into a thriving future. Our research-based programming supports girls at every stage of their development. We focus on the whole girl: her health and well-being, education, and development as a leader.
