Girls Inc. celebrates century of helping girls from Meriden and Wallingford
This year, as it celebrates its 100th anniversary, staff, alumni and students will celebrate Girls Inc.’s evolution, including mission and programs.
“We’re here to inspire girls to be strong, smart and bold,” said Executive Director Michelle Bourdeau. “We want them to be independent minded, independent thinking. I wished I had access to this programming when I was younger.”
Girls Inc. serves about 1,500 girls age 5 and up from Meriden and Wallingford. It continues its traditional programming of dance and gymnastics as well as offering newer programs in science, math and technology, economic literacy, and social media literacy.
