The Girls Inc. Teen Program, offered year round, builds leadership and healthy relationship skills through project-based learning, advocacy, and community service, while creating a safe, inclusive environment that fosters a sisterhood of support to help teens meet the unique challenges they face. The Teen Center, located at our Goleta Valley campus, houses meeting space, a homework room, a full kitchen, garden, and outdoor space just for teens. After-school and summer programs for girls in grades 7-12 help teens learn how to be effective voices in their community and how to stay on track academically to plan for their educational and career futures beyond high school. Programming focuses on exploration and exposure to a variety of career paths including the STEM fields and other fields where women are underrepresented. Enrollment is ongoing. Transportation is provided after school to the Goleta Valley center during the school year. We also offer onsite teen after-school programming at Santa Barbara Junior High School.

2019-2020 After School Program
If I hadn’t come to Girls Inc., I think I would be one of those girls in school who wouldn’t try their hardest and would give up after high school. Girls Inc. has helped me become a different person because they have pushed me to go to college. Now I want to go to college and with my leadership skills I can also help others pursue their dreams.
