How I Want My Daughter to Grow Up


Healthy. Educated. Independent. That is how Carissa wants her daughter, and all girls in our community, to grow up.

Carissa supports Girls Inc.’s research-based programming and its delivery by trained professionals who focus on the development of the whole girl, supporting, mentoring and guiding girls in an affirming, pro-girl environment. She believes in the trusting, mentoring relationships at Girls Inc. that help young people attain the psychological and social skills that are necessary for success in education and in life.

As a professional woman and mother, I am happy to know there is an organization focused on a safe environment for girls to explore who they are while being surrounded by positive role models who help them navigate many social, economic, and gender barriers and stereotypes.
