Peer pressure. Struggles in school. Bullying. Bias. Self-confidence. Economic barriers.

It’s hard to be a girl growing up today.

Every girl, no matter what her circumstances, deserves experiences that will help enable her to earn her education and become a healthy, independent, and thriving adult.

Girls Inc. Dallas provides the essential elements and interconnected methods needed to meet the complex, diverse needs of girls, particularly those from low-income and under-resourced communities.


At Girls Inc. Dallas, we focus on the development of the “whole girl.” She learns to value herself, take risks, and discover and develop her inherent strengths. Our combination of long-lasting mentoring relationships, a pro-girl/all-girl environment, and research-based programming equips girls to navigate gender, economic, and social barriers and grow up prepared for postsecondary success and 21st century careers.



For decades our community has entrusted Girls Inc. Dallas to provide a safe haven and wholesome place for girls to go to afterschool and in the summer. We have been given a unique opportunity to effectively help girls grow into young women who are confident, courageous and prepared to make a positive difference in their lives, their families and in the world.

We take our mission to heart and are committed to empowering all girls to be strong, smart and bold. Along with parent involvement and our nationally researched programs, girls continue to discover the world, themselves and the possibilities that await them.
