Girls Inc. of Greater Houston is positively impacting the lives of more than 1,700 girls across Greater Houston and inspiring them to be Strong, Smart, and Bold.

  • We know that girls with a positive self-image feel good about themselves, realize they are capable of doing great things, and make decisions that support their healthy development. This month we are rolling out our #GirlBoss program at Proctor Plaza Community Center, it's open to all girls ages 9-12. Help us spread the word!

  • Did you know the girls at DeAnda Elementary school are being taught STEM lessons from a retired Lockheed Martin engineer? Read below to learn more about our volunteer spotlight of the month.

  • Also, you can shop for us at Kendra Scott on March 5th as "Kendra Gives Back" during Women’s History Month!
