Girls and Their Families at such a Critical Time
The Florida Department of Education announced this week that schools will remain closed until at least May 1st so that we may all do our part to stop the spread of Coronavirus.
While our local schools are closed, many parents still have to work and children are required to complete class assignments. To that end, licensed childcare centers and youth-focused organizations are stepping up to fill the gap for parents who are on the front lines and thus required to work. These parents need a safe place for their children during working hours.
Girls Inc of Pinellas is here to help.
Because this is such a crucial time for families, beginning Monday, April 6th ALL FEES are being waived until the end of the school year.
Returning and New Girls may attend FREE OF CHARGE.
Girls Inc. of Pinellas is dedicated to reaching all girls across Pinellas County. Whether you have participated in our programs in the past or not. We are providing full-day programming with academic support to complete online assignments provided by your local school teachers. We understand that safety comes first. Some of the precautions we are taking as recommended by our local department of health include: taking each child's temperature before daily admission, keeping classrooms to 9 with no co-mingling, etc.
In our Girls Inc After School Enrichment Program, Achieving Excellence in the Arts Summer Camp, and Spring Break Space Camp: we help the girls of today grow up to become the leaders of tomorrow. Girls Inc. of Pinellas serves girls ages 5 – 18.
The Girls Inc. Experience is the totality of what we provide girls and what happens when girls participate in Girls Inc.
Our Theory of Change is that the Girls Inc. Experience equips girls to navigate gender, economic and social barriers and grow into healthy, educated and independent adults.
Give to ensure girls have the experiences and opportunities to thrive.
Your contribution will make a difference.
