What we aim to solve

Today, girls continue to encounter significant obstacles to their well-being and success.
1 in 6 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 4 girls will be a victim of childhood sexual abuse.
Girls Inc. of Sarasota County fulfills its mission of empowering girls, kindergarten to 18, to be self-confident, responsible and well-rounded individuals by delivering research-based, age appropriate, after school/summer educational and sports programs. Our goal is to equip girls with the skills they need to be Strong, Smart, and Bold in 3 key areas: Academic Achievement, Health and Fitness, and Life Skills.
Girls Inc. serves girls who need us the most-girls who wouldn't have the opportunities, experiences, or role models to lead fulfilling and productive lives.

Charting impact

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

The Girls Inc. Experience focuses on the development of the "whole girl," with programs designed to develop the skills they need to successfully navigate gender, economic and social barriers, and grow into healthy, educated and economically independent adults, prepared employees, and strong and ethical leaders. Our programs bolster their social, emotional, physical, and mental health and give them the support and tools to achieve their own goals boldly and confidently. The research-based Girls Inc. National Identity Programs focus on building awareness of and skill development within the following areas: Economic Literacy, Media Literacy, Friendly PEERsuasion, Leadership & Community Action, Preventing Adolescent Pregnancy, Project BOLD, Sporting Chance, and Operation SMART (Science, Math, and Relevant Technology).
Through these programs, our girls learn to value themselves, take risks, and discover and develop their inherent strengths. The combination of long-lasting mentoring relationships, a pro-girl environment, and research-based programming equips girls to navigate gender, economic, and social barriers, and grow up healthy, educated and independent.

As a Girls Inc. affiliate, we 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 continues to effectively deliver desired outcomes for girls. The program framework has been established to drive future planning.
We are committed to consistently delivering a high-quality Girls Inc. Experience.
