Too many girls in Alameda County are growing up marginalized due to the intersection of gender limitations, racial assumptions, and the lack of access created by economic distress. Here in the prosperous San Francisco Bay Area, these girls face significant barriers to uncovering their strengths and realizing their potential.
Girls Inc. of Alameda County’s model creates opportunities for success. We equip girls to defy limitations and stereotypes, attend college, break the cycle of poverty, and move into a thriving future. Our research-based programming supports girls at every stage of their development. We focus on the whole girl: her health and well-being, education, and development as a leader.
