Notes from the nonprofit

Girls Inc. of San Antonio is an affiliate of the more than 150 year old national organization, Girls Incorporated. With a mission to inspire all girls to be STRONG, SMART, and BOLD, Girls Inc. is the longest girl-serving institution in the United States. Girls Inc. of San Antonio was established in the community to help deter the high-risk behaviors of San Antonio girls that prevented them from completing their education. In 2004, the organizations first year, Girls Inc. served merely 100 girls. In 2015, Girls Inc. of San Antonio has proudly provided programming to more than 5,500 girls – providing them with life-changing experiences and solutions to the unique challenges girls face.

The organization puts the mission into practice through the Girls Inc. Experience -- people, environment, and programming that together empowers girls to succeed. The Girls Inc. Experience equips girls to navigate gender, economic and social barriers and grow into healthy, educated and independent adults. There are six essential elements that define the Girls Inc. Experience:

1. A pro-girl and girls-only environment that is physically, socially and emotionally safe and confirms that girls can succeed and deserve to be taken seriously for the persons they are now and the women they will become;

2. Trusting, mentoring relationships with adult staff and volunteers trained in an approach that is grounded in a belief in girls' rights and abilities;

3. Holistic, compensatory, and intentional programming focused on girls' needs, that provides exposure to a wide variety of experiences and options that girls might not have experienced otherwise;

4. Relevant, field-tested, and research-based curricula that confront the serious needs of girls while building the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to enable girls to be competent, confident individuals and adult women;

5. Girl-centered, motivating, deliberate, and interactive activities that develop and promote girls' strengths.

6. Sustained exposure to programming and connection with a girl over time to increase positive outcomes and reduce the potential for negative outcomes.

These essential elements provide a holistic approach that is grounded in a belief in girls' rights and abilities.

Girls University Summer Camp

The Girls University Summer Camp allows the organization to work directly with girls between June through August to address summer learning loss during a critical out-of-school time. Over the summer, Girls Inc. helps foster leadership and confidence in girls while continuing to support their educational advances in a safe, supportive, pro-girl environment. Lessons build upon what was learned during the school year, and skills built during the summer can be taken directly into the classroom at the beginning of the academic year.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Today, girls continue to encounter significant obstacles to their well-being and success.

1 in 4 girls will not finish high school.
78% of girls are unhappy with their bodies by age 17.
3 in 10 girls will become pregnant before the age of 20.
1 in 5 girls will be a victim of childhood sexual abuse.
 
Girls Inc. meets these challenges by helping girls explore and celebrate their strengths, their voices, who they are today, and who they will become. Girls Inc. equips girls to navigate gender, economic, and social barriers and grow up healthy, educated, and independent. Girls build confidence and embrace positive decision-making to take charge of their health and wellbeing, and achieve academic, personal and career goals.

As we embark on a new strategic direction, building from our current position of strength, our goals for the future include:

- Girls Inc. program framework will effectively deliver desired outcomes for girls.
- Girls Inc. will have strong affiliates that are able to consistently deliver a high-quality Girls Inc. Experience.
- Girls Inc. will grow the number of low income girls served with the Girls Inc. program model.
- Girls Inc. will expand its impact by becoming a leading advocate for advancing the rights and opportunities for all girls.
- Girls Inc. will have the necessary resources, systems, and supports to be a data-driven and performance oriented network and external influencer.

Girls Inc. program framework will effectively deliver desired outcomes for girls: affiliates align behind a network-wide approach to reaching girls with an intensive, holistic approach that is distinctive to Girls Inc.

Girls Inc. will have strong affiliates that are able to consistently deliver a high-quality Girls Inc. Experience: affiliates align with common business practices and strategic goals to emphasize sustainability and risk mitigation, opening the way to innovative reach to new communities.

Girls Inc. will grow the number of low income girls served with the Girls Inc. program model: affiliates are recognized experts in their local areas, anchored into the fabric of the communities where they serve girls who most need the Girls Inc. Experience.

Girls Inc. will expand its impact by becoming a leading advocate for advancing the rights and opportunities for all girls: the network engages in advocacy at the national, state, and local levels, as appropriate, with a particular focus on the needs of girls from low-income communities and girls who face multiple, intersectional challenges such as those based on sex, race, ethnicity, immigration status, sexual orientation, and gender identity. We are committed to a “girl-centered" advocacy approach that prioritizes the lived experiences of girls in our network and lifts up their voices; we aim to empower girls with the tools necessary to be change agents in their communities and beyond.

Girls Inc. will have the necessary resources, systems, and supports to be a data-driven and performance oriented network and external influencer: The Girls Inc. Outcomes Measurement Strategy is designed to help us understand and showcase the measurable difference we make in the lives of Girls Inc. girls. Gathering information about outcomes for girls will, over time, meet three important purposes for the Girls Inc. network:

- Mission accomplishment – how well are we working toward the Girls Inc. mission
- Performance management - how well are we meeting our objectives
- Evaluation – how do we know that we are having the impact we aspire to have

Girls Inc. program framework will effectively deliver desired outcomes for girls: The program framework has been established and shared with all affiliates to drive planning.

Girls Inc. will have strong affiliates that are able to consistently deliver a high-quality Girls Inc. Experience: the business model has been established and shared with affiliates to bolster planning.

Girls Inc. will grow the number of low income girls served with the Girls Inc. program model: 17 affiliates have received more than $3M in investment capital to expand; over the next three years 60 affiliates will receive more than $20M in investment capital.

Girls Inc. will expand its impact by becoming a leading advocate for advancing the rights and opportunities for all girls: the policy framework has been developed in conjunction with the Girls Advocacy Committee (girls) and Public Policy Committee (adults).

Girls Inc. will have the necessary resources, systems, and supports to be a data-driven and performance oriented network and external influencer: Girls Inc. has engaged an outside evaluator to conduct a quasi-experimental study of our aggregate outcomes data.
