The Girls Inc. after-school programs are specifically designed for elementary, middle and high school aged girls to prepare them for the next step of their educational success.

Girls will learn practical applications of information and technology.
GIRLSLEAD is designed for middle school aged girls and is intended to build their leadership skills and create lasting social change through community action projects.
GIRLSERVE is created for high school girls interested in learning how to plan, design, and implement community service and activist projects and helps the girls prepare for college and career opportunities.
