ABOUT US

In partnership with schools and at Girls Inc. centers, we focus on the development of the whole girl. 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.

Since 1961, Girls Inc. of Chattanooga has served more than 28,000 girls from across Chattanooga with programs available to all girls in school, after school and outside of school in seasonal camps. Together with donors, the collective commitment of Girls Inc. supporters has prepared hundreds of Chattanooga girls to grow into inspirational leaders in their own right here at home and across the country.

MISSION

Our mission is to inspire and prepare girls to be strong, smart and bold leaders within their families, their community and society.

OUR VISION

That Girls Inc. of Chattanooga leads the way in empowering girls in an equitable society - helping girls pursue their individual dreams and opportunities to reach their full potential for impacting the world around them.
