irls Inc. of San Antonio is an affiliate of the national Girls Incorporated organization that was established locally in November 2004. With a mission to inspire all girls to be strong, smart, and bold, Girls Inc. of San Antonio helps girls age 6 to 18 overcome barriers that prohibit them from achieving their personal, educational, and career goals.

The Difference it Makes:

Girls Inc. of San Antonio offers pro-girl, evidence based programs that help girls lead healthy, educated, and independent lives. While the organization is not the only girl-focused program, Girls Inc. is the only girl-serving institution in the community that is trauma-informed and provides a holistic learning experience for girls outside of standard school hours. Girls Inc. knows that there is no other agency in the community that delivers research-based curriculum in a pro-girl and girls-only environment that is physically, socially, and emotionally safe to the extent that Girls Inc. is committed to.

Mission

Testimonies

Kris – Girls Inc. Volunteer

“My Mom learned about Girls Inc. at work and encouraged me to get involved. During the summer, I volunteer as a Camp Program Aide working with girls ages 6-8. Having a bunch of girls in one place with different personalities showed me how unique we all are.

It is great to be surrounded by people who presented women as not a picture but as a human being – someone real and intelligent. I love the fact that at a young age we are telling girls that it doesn’t matter what you look like but that you are comfortable in the body you are in.”

Ta’Aliyah – Girls Inc. Girl

“I have been involved with Girls Inc. for almost two years. My experience has been great and I wish I had known about it sooner! My father has been raising me as a single parent. He did some research and introduced me to the organization. I was kind of nervous about joining and meeting new people; however, as soon as I participated in my first program, I was made to feel welcome, met great people and have made a lot of new friends.

Being part of Girls Inc. has opened a whole new world for me, I am thinking positive and feeling good about myself and for my future as I set my goals for college and beyond.”
