Our research-based programming is delivered by trained professionals who focus on the development of the whole girl, supporting, mentoring, and guiding girls in an affirming, pro-girl environment. Here, girls learn to value their whole selves, discover and develop their inherent strengths, and receive the support they need to navigate the challenges they face.
Gender-based oppression affects everyone, especially those who have been historically marginalized. It is essential that our youth have a safe and supportive environment to be themselves. Girls Inc. of Santa Fe has been a trans-inclusive organization for many years, being steadfast in our commitment to providing the Girls Inc. experience in a safe space for our youth. Our doors are open to our transgender and non-binary individuals. We believe that we are all connected: discrimination targeted toward some girls not only hinders their achievement but diminishes the strength of community for all. We welcome all transgender girls and young women and non-binary individuals, regardless of their assigned sex at birth.
Girls Inc. girls & participants live healthy and active lifestyles and are less likely to engage in risky behavior; they are eager to learn, successful in school, and more likely to graduate from post-secondary education; and they display diligence, perseverance and resilience.
