Girls Inc. of Santa Fe is an affiliate of the national nonprofit youth organization, Girls Incorporated, dedicated to providing vital, innovative educational programs to girls ages 5 – 18, particularly those who are underserved or at risk of making unhealthy choices. Our programs are researched and evaluated nationally for effectiveness, and are implemented by trained enthusiastic and sensitive staff.
Girls are strong, smart, and bold and we equip them with the tools to remain so in the face of societal pressure to conform to ever-evolving gender stereotypes. We respect diversity of ideas and cultures, advocate for girls in the community, and provide opportunities to all girls regardless of culture, race, disability, or socioeconomic status.
Girls Incorporated encourages girls to: Take risks; Think, probe and be inquisitive; Be leaders; Be assertive, speak up for themselves and take action; Make mistakes, learn from them and try again; Try out new interests and acquire new skills; Be healthy – physically, mentally and emotionally.
Girls Inc. teaches girls to analyze critically what they see and hear in the media, to advocate for change in entertainment, news, and advertising, and to demand images that are more positive and reflective of their lives. For a tip sheet, Click Here
