Who We Serve
We serve girls in Title I schools in South Los Angeles, Watts and Compton. Many Girls Inc. participants are considered “at risk” through no fault of their own, due to circumstances such as family poverty, gang surrounding’s and even homelessness. Still, girl-based challenges affect all young girls regardless of income, ethnicity, or education.
Girls Inc. program participants receive individual attention from trained professional staff and caring volunteers. In our elementary schools, Girls Inc. LA offers in-school and after school programming. In our middle and high schools, we provide after school enrichment programming.
