2021 Fall/Winter Appeal

Help Girls Thrive, Not Just Survive.

The ongoing pandemic and the delta variant have added another level of stress and trauma for our girls. Your generous donation supports GEMS (Girls. Empowerment. Mentoring. Support.), our successful social-emotional learning program offered at all Alameda elementary schools for girls who need us most.

Donate today and help us reach our goal of raising $100,000.

Fall 2021 Girls Inc. Elementary Program

We are excited to once again offer our in-person, after school Girls Inc. program for girls who are at least 6 years old and entering 1st grade.

Unfortunately, due to staffing logistics, we are picking up girls from the following schools only: Maya Lin, Love, and Franklin. Once we are fully staffed, we will open our program to girls from Paden, Nea, Ruby Bridges, and all other schools.

For Maya Lin, Love, and Franklin Schools registration, please visit our Elementary Programs page and download our Fees & Payment Information.

To receive notification of when we will open registration for Paden, Nea, Ruby Bridges, and all other schools, please fill out our Transportation Notification Request and you will be placed on the contact list. We appreciate your patience while we work diligently on hiring additional Girls Inc. staff.

Girls Inc. OF THE ISLAND CITY inspires all girls to be strong, smart, and bold

Our programming – at Dr. Edith Meyers Center and in partnership with community organizations and Alameda schools – focuses on the development of the whole girl. A combination of long-lasting mentoring relationships, a pro-girl environment and research-based programming equips girls to lead fulfilling and productive lives, break the cycle of poverty, and become role models in their community.
