Girls Inc. Canadian Federation
Kingston, Ontario K7L 1H3
Girls Inc. delivers life-changing programs that inspire girls to be strong, smart, and bold. Research-based curricula, delivered by trained professionals, equip girls to achieve academically; lead healthy and physically active lives; manage money; navigate media messages; and discover an interest in science, technology, engineering, and math. The network of local Girls Inc. non-profit organizations serves 164,000 girls annually at over 1,500 sites in 350 cities across Canada and the United States. At Girls Inc., we believe: Girls have the right to be themselves and to resist gender stereotypes. Girls have the right to express themselves with originality and enthusiasm. Girls have the right to take risks, to strive freely, and to take pride in success. Girls have the right to accept and appreciate their bodies. Girls have the right to have confidence in themselves and to be safe in the world. Girls have the right to prepare for interesting work and economic independence.
Girls Inc. responds to the changing needs of girls and their communities through research-based programs and advocacy that empower girls to reach their full potential and to understand, value and assert their rights. We provide a safe haven for more than 5500 girls on an annual basis and enable them to establish positive relationships with mentors and role models. An additional 7500 girls benefit directly from workshops each year. Girls Inc. strives to provide a safe, supportive community – a place that is just girls. Girls are taught that they are entitled to be heard, to be taken seriously, to dream big dreams and develop the knowledge and skills to pursue those dreams. Girls Inc. allows girls to envision a future without limitations. At the end of the day, Girls Inc. is a place girls want to come back to – not because they have to – but because no place else makes them feel so assured about who they are and hopeful about who they can become. It’s much more than a place – it’s an attitude, a dream, a promise. Donations are used to support Girls Inc. agencies in Canada, with the delivery of programs and services for girls.
