A College Shower Celebration for our 2021 Graduates!

The traditional Graduation March, shrieks of excitement, honking horns, and the beat of tambourines filled the air in Oakland and three surrounding cities as a caravan of decorated cars filled with Girls Inc. staff paraded to our graduates’ homes to congratulate them and wish them well in their bright futures. Every year, in celebration of their achievement, we shower our seniors with the essentials they need for college and post-secondary education. The majority of our girls are the first in their families to attend college and the support they receive from Girls Inc. goes a long way to ease the transition.

Cooking Matters

As part of the strong component of strong, smart, and bold, we provide a curriculum around healthy living as part of the continuum of our programming. The 4th and 5th graders in several of our school-based programs are currently learning more about nutrition and cooking with a virtual cooking class facilitated by 18 Reasons and sponsored by the Golden State Warriors. Taught by a trained chef and nutritionist, the class introduces culinary skills, nutrition knowledge, and a love of home cooking through a series of lessons created for our youth.

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.
