Our Mission

Girls Inc. of New York City is a girl serving non-profit organization in NYC. We inspire all girls to be strong, smart, and bold, through direct service and advocacy. We focus on the development of the whole girl where she learns to value herself, take risks, and discover and develop her 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. Informed by girls and their families, we also advocate for legislation and policies to increase opportunities and rights for all girls.
