Why: Every day at Girls Inc. of the Pacific Northwest, staff and volunteers help girls in the Pacific Northwest (ages 6-18) realize their potential. Every day, we challenge girls through gender-specific programs and research-based curricula that instills in them the confidence and self-esteem to access a bright and economically-independent future. We believe in Strong, Smart, and Bold: our programming teaches lessons on healthy living, explores fields in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math), and takes them on adventures that brings them out of their comfort zone and teaches them critical leadership skills. Now YOU can join in on the adventure and show our girls the meaning of BOLD!
