Girls Inc. at YWCA Nashville & Middle Tennessee is dedicated to inspiring all girls to be strong, smart, and bold. The Girls Inc. Experience consists of people, an environment, and programming that, together, empower girls to succeed. Trained staff and volunteers build lasting, mentoring relationships in girls-only spaces that are physically and emotionally safe and where girls find a sisterhood of support with shared drive, mutual respect, and high expectations. Hands-on, research-based programs provide girls with the skills and knowledge to set goals, overcome obstacles, and improve academic performance. Girls Inc. also equips girls to lead healthy and physically active lives; manage money; navigate media messages; and discover an interest in science, technology, engineering, and math.
