WHO WE ARE
Girls Inc. of Chattanooga is a 501(c)3 United Way affiliated organization serving girls aged 6 – 18 via a wide variety of programs, all with a single goal: to help girls grow the confidence and the skills to be STRONG, SMART and BOLD throughout their lives.
Since 1961, Girls Inc has served our community with programs available to all local girls in school, after school and outside of school in seasonal camps.
Named the 2015/16 Affiliate of the Year by National Girls Inc., the Chattanooga team is comprised of highly trained, committed staff and volunteers who believe in the promise and potential of local girls. The results of their dedication and focus are best demonstrated by the words and achievements of Girls Inc. girls.
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.
