As a company made for (and largely made up of) women, we’re extra proud to support Girls Inc., a nationwide nonprofit organization committed to empowering young girls through advocacy and education. In honor of our collaboration with them, here’s a rundown of what Girls Inc. is all about—by the numbers.
1864: the year the first Girls Inc. affiliate was formed in Connecticut as a place for young women to gather and support each other.
151,000: girls from ages 6–18 benefit from the network of affiliates across the country every year.
8: hands-on, research-based programming options tackle everything from teaching economic literacy to physical activity (both equally important, we say).
30: hours a week, on average, provided for after-school, weekend and summer activities at Girls Inc. centers. Who wouldn’t love such a supportive place to hang outside of class?
400: cities across the U.S. and Canada are represented in the organization’s wide-ranging network—chances are there’s a location near you.
