Girls Inc. provides invaluable service to Capital Region girls. Taking a holistic approach to both mind and body, with programs designed to inspire girls to be Strong, Smart, and Bold, we celebrate and empower girls and young women, and advocate for an equitable world.  Many have seen our impact first-hand, having met some of the young ladies who have currently enrolled and others who are alumnae of Girls Inc. programs.

Girls Inc. girls are confident, speak their minds, and no matter what their age, they have goals and a plan to achieve them — amazing!

Please join us in celebrating Girls Inc.’s programs for local girls at this year’s Dinner & Auction. In doing so you will make it possible for Girls Inc. to continue offering the quality programs which parents say is the major reason they entrust their daughters to Girls Inc.

A warm heartfelt thank you to all our generous sponsors!
