Girls Inc. of Chattanooga inspires and equips girls to be strong, smart, bold, healthy, educated, and independent — on their journey to self-discovery. Since 1961, Girls Inc. has worked with more than 26,000 girls ages 6 -18 throughout Hamilton County. Today, they continue that legacy by providing girls with life-changing experiences and real solutions to the unique issues girls face. Girls Inc. gives girls the right tools and support to succeed, including trained professionals who mentor them in a safe girls-only environment, peers who share their aspirations, and research-based programming. At Girls Inc., girls learn to set and achieve goals, boldly confront challenges, resist peer pressure, see college as attainable, and explore fields such as STEM. We are proud that since we began tracking in 2007, 100% of the girls who complete our high school afterschool programs go on to college.
