For me, what makes Girls Inc. so very important and unique is the organization’s focus on teaching girls about risk. Girls learn in creative ways about not taking bad risks and, just as importantly, about taking good risks. There are multiple programs that teach the girls how to stay in school, to learn to live within a budget, to have healthy attitudes toward relationships and much, much more. But there are also many programs related to trying things that may be intimidating or frightening. Whether it be speaking in front of a group, learning about programming or other STEM related fields or traveling to an unfamiliar place, Girls Inc. teaches girls to be bold – to be unafraid to try something new, to make mistakes and keep going, to know she is capable of doing amazing things she has yet to discover.
