Community convenings are an opportunity to explore the bigger picture, while centering the girls’ voices, to find ways to make this vision of a fully supported girl a reality. Through centering youth we are listening to them first. Our conversations will build on understanding what is needed from their perspective.

As a community-centered organization, Girls Inc believes your voice matters. We know that youth engage with many individuals, communities, and organizations that intersect. This is an opportunity to learn from and engage with a small group of trusted community partners, including you. Your informed and thoughtful responses are an opportunity for us to learn from the Girls Inc Ecosystem while giving us additional insight into the larger potential and impact of Girls Inc.

This year, Girls Inc began a Strategic Planning Process that will be informed through a series of Community Convenings facilitated by Prospera Partners. We believe in the impact and community benefit that emerges from cultivating communities where New Mexican girls are fully supported, embodying the Girls Inc belief to enable girls to be strong, smart, and bold, and achieve their full potential.

We want to see and hear from you! The dates of each community convenings are:

April 19 – 5:30 – 7:30 pm: RSVP HERE
May 3 – 4:00 – 6:00 pm
June 8 – 4:00 – 6:00 pm
June 28 – 4:00 – 6:00 pm
