Happy International Day of the Girl!

International Day of the Girl is a chance to raise girl's voices and a global celebration of their action, leadership, and ability. We are proud to be an organization that can break down barriers, amplify girls’ voices, and strive toward our vision of seeing powerful girls in an equitable society.

In honor of this day of awareness, the Deckers Brand Showcase will donate 40% of TODAY's total sales to Girls Inc. of Greater Santa Barbara to help support our continued efforts to build the new generation of strong, smart, and bold leaders.

Can't make it out to Deckers? Please consider donating to us directly and invest in our vision of seeing powerful girls in an equitable society.


¡Feliz Mes de la Herencia Hispana!

Latin/e/x and Hispanic Heritage Month is a celebratory period that honors Hispanic and Latin/e/x communities from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15.

As an organization that serves many Latin/e/x girls, youth, and families in our community, and that relies on a robust Latin/e/x workforce to support programs for and create meaningful mentor relationships with the youth we serve, GIGSB must ensure that Hispanic voices, perspectives, and cultures are a central part of our leadership. Lifting up the voices and experiences of these girls, youth, families, and people is a vital part of our cultural competency work.

Thank you for another great 5k & 10k!

We couldn't have done it without you!

Thanks to your generous support, we raised double what we raised together last year and ended up with more than 30K. All of these funds will be used to build the new generation of STRONG, SMART and BOLD leaders.

SAVE THE DATE: Next year's 5k & 10k is Saturday, Sept. 9th 2023.


Teen After-School Program at GVJH, SBJH and LCJH

The overall goal of our Teen After School Programs is to have a safe space for our teen girl identifying youth and to be a resource for them. Teens get help with homework but will also learn different life skills such as cooking, building connections and art.

We run programming from 2:50-5:30 however, the program is flexible if your teen is involved in after school sports or has a 7th period. Our Teen After School Programs are held on campus at: Goleta Valley, Santa Barbara and La Colina Junior High
