Girls Inc. of Alameda County programming is designed to empower girls at every stage of development, and provides a supportive, engaging environment for them to thrive. We focus on the whole girl: her health and well-being, education, and development as a leader. In addition to our K-12 programming coninuum, Girls Inc. offers outpatient mental health services for youth and families and school-based case management services in English and Spanish. Given our work in economically distressed and under-resourced neighborhoods, we recognize that many of our girls face ongoing exposure to trauma. We are committed to providing a trauma-informed approach throughout our programs by ensuring our staff are equipped to recognize and respond to girls who have faced traumatic stress-reducing the impact of that stress on girls' ability to learn.
