2023 Girls Inc. of Alameda County 65th Anniversary Gala

El Programa en Español


Save the date to join us at Oakland’s BLOC15 event venue to celebrate 65 years of our community impact! In 1958, we established our first center out of a small home in San Leandro, serving 20 girls in the community. We have experienced tremendous growth since then, now providing a robust 430,000 program hours annually to more than 1,200 youth from nearly 75 schools in Oakland and the San Francisco East Bay.
