Teen programs offer many leadership opportunities to young women, ages 14 to 18. Teens address important issues such as sexism, racism, the prevention of early sexual activity, underage drinking and drug use. Any teen can become a part of Girls Inc. by participating in enrichment activities, coming for homework assistance and/or working on community events organized by teen leaders.
Young women learn about career choices, college admissions, and other post secondary opportunities. Our programs offer computer access, one-on-one advising, homework help, job and college preparation, community involvement, mentoring and leadership development. After-School program hours are Monday – Thursday 3:00pm- 7:00pm and Fridays 3:00pm-5:30pm.
The Learning Center is open to any teen girl who would like homework help, tutoring, or just a quiet space to study. Equipped with wireless laptops and printing capabilities, the Learning Center is designed to meet today’s academic needs. Trained staff work with girls to evaluate learning styles and matches individuals with volunteer tutors and mentors.
