Since 1999, Girls Inc. of NYC has honored girls who are transitioning from high school to college through our signature annual event, College Shower.
At the College Shower, honorees receive scholarships and gift bags filled with everything needed to arrive at college ready to learn. Through College Shower we show girls that their educational accomplishments are valued and we're proud of them!
Educating girls builds the foundation for strong and successful communities. Our programs are designed to give girls in the most challenging neighborhoods of NYC an appreciation of the importance of education and the skills necessary to achieve their goals.
Why She Loves College Shower
College Shower was such a blessing! My transition from high school to college wasn't as hard as I was expecting it to be thanks to Girls Inc. As a result, I was able to focus on my studies and schedule along with making friends instead of struggling to afford things for class and my dorm room.
I absolutely love my white board calendar! I use it throughout the semester to plan assignments. I've even started using it to track school breaks. I can't live without my graphic calculator! (Yes, nerd alert here.) Majoring in math would be impossible without it. I can't express how grateful I am for everything I received at College Shower.
