Our girls have been training since summer to run the 5K and 10K SheIs.Beautiful race! In addition to the physical training, they are learning healthy eating, and how to care for their bodies leading up to the race. And, they are learning the importance of supporting each other while trying something new.

"Building a more equitable society means educating and empowering girls to be actively involved in civics and the political process. While women make up more than half the U.S. population, they are represented by a Congress made up of 80% men. Educating girls and young women about this reality can empower them to change it."
To celebrate Girls Inc.'s 60th Anniversary in Santa Barbara, we have launched the #GirlsHaveTheRight social media campaign. Stop by our centers to pick up your sign and affirm girls' rights with us. Thank you to our girls, staff, and supporters!
