STRONG, SMART, AND BOLD
Our vision is that all girls in our care grow up healthy, educated, and independent with a strong foundation for successful adult lives.
Many girls need help overcoming the messages and pressures from family or community that make them doubt their self-worth. We help girls gain confidence encouraging them to set achievable goals, explore their interests, and dream beyond their realities. Girls Inc. staff, mentors, and community partners work daily to help girls discover that their potential is limitless.
Girls from any Hamblen County school have the opportunity to come to the Center for fun educational programming by riding a Girls Inc. bus. Each year, those same buses take girls on educational field trips that widen their world view. Growing, friendship, and learning is all happening at Girls Inc. of Hamblen County.
