Building Strong, Smart & Bold Communities – One Girl at a Time
We are thrilled to be running a 10-week 2021 Summer Enrichment Program for 100 members! Field trips, mini-field trips, STEM labs, literacy support, arts, crafts and fun in the summer sun! Our members deserve an amazing summer!
THE IMPACT OF COVID-19
We must ensure that the COVID-19 crisis does not intensify learning loss, socioemotional distress, hunger and trauma. Since July 1, 2020, Girls Inc. pivoted from an after-school program to a remote learning center for 40-60 girls daily. Despite lost revenue and additional operational costs, Girls Inc. also provides breakfast and lunch, and after-school activities in a safe and supportive environment. Thanks to the support of the Greater Lowell Community Foundation, National Grid, The United Way, The Cummings Foundation and individual donors, Girls Inc. continues to adapt programming as required by the State of Massachusetts.
