In high school, girls gain a clearer understanding of their context in the community and the world. They gain more independence, navigate increased social pressures, and hone their sense of what they want to contribute as they move into their future.
Girls Inc. supports high school girls’ success by focusing on college- and workplace-readiness, sisterhood, and community leadership. Girls gain valuable experience through coding projects and paid summer internships at some of the Bay Area’s top companies; go on college tours and learn about the college application and financial aid process; uplift themselves and their peers through reproductive health education; and leverage social change tools to advocate for positive change in the world around them.
