The Girls Inc. Experience empowers girls to succeed. Girls Inc. of Huntsville provides girls with trusting, mentoring relationships; a girls-only environment, and research-based, hands-on programming. Three critical goals drive our programming – that girls lead healthy lives, succeed academically, and have life skills needed that prepare them for adulthood. To meet our goal of girls leading healthy lives, we work to ensure that girls have the skills, knowledge, and support to take charge of their health and increase healthy behaviors throughout their lives.

The below programming is offered during after-school, fall break, spring break and summer camp programming.  Additionally, small group Girls Inc. programming is available in several schools throughout Madison County.  To benefit from our programming girls must want to be in the program, follow center/group rules, and participate in after-school, fall break, spring break, summer camp or school-based programming. At this time we do not offer one-day or drop-in opportunities.
