Girls Inc. Update: Your Investment at Work

Dear Friend,

I’m proud to introduce you to one of this year’s National Scholars, Paola, whose personal essay is attached. In her story, I hope that you will recognize the many ways in which your investment in Girls Inc. translates into evidence-based programs that help girls like Paola develop confidence, define their voices, pursue their academic and career interests, and become advocates in their communities.

This year, 1,173 girls across the Girls Inc. network graduated from high school, and 84 percent are starting college right away. Their achievements are a testament to their hard work and dedication. They also speak to the commitment of Girls Inc. staff and the support girls have received from their families and their communities—including you. Whether these girls are headed to college or taking another path, I know they will fulfill all of the incredible promise that they represent.

While this year’s graduates face a far different future than any of us expected, I believe that they are well equipped to take on the challenges that lay ahead. A recent two-year study by the American Institutes of Research found that, compared to their peers, Girls Inc. girls are more engaged, curious, and self-assured in academic areas and are better prepared for their next steps after high school.

Thanks to your loyal support, Girls Inc. is able to prepare more girls for success in K–12 and beyond. I am deeply grateful for your confidence in Girls Inc., and I look forward to working with you to continue transforming the lives and futures of girls across the U.S. and Canada.

Best wishes,

Stephanie J. Hull, Ph.D.

President and CEO
