Girls Inc. of the Central Coast is made up of programs that focus on leadership development, post-secondary education, healthy relationships, and pregnancy prevention. Our programs are designed for girls in elementary school through high school.
All programs are conducted after school at school sites, eliminating any difficulties with transportation for the girls and young women. We have established productive working relationships with schools whose staffs assist us with recruiting and program implementation.
Girls Inc. of the Central Coast is the first affiliate in the country to offer programs facilitated entirely by teens. Teen graduates from our high school program return as paid youth leaders to facilitate all of our programs. They are confident, strong, and passionate about going back to their communities as role models for younger girls.
