Teen Programs

At Girls Inc. of San Antonio, teens become leaders and role models. Programs for girls in middle and high school address important issues such as sexism, racism, healthy relationships, and the prevention of risky behaviors. All girls learn about career choices, college admissions, and other post-secondary opportunities. Teens also have access to leadership workshops, community service, and adult mentors.

Programs are open to teens who have been previously enrolled in our programs as well as those who are new to Girls Inc. Teens can participate in one or all the workshops as they stand alone. However, we recommend that teens participate in all the days offered for a well-rounded experience and to build positive relationships with the other girls and the facilitators of the group.

Girls who have been a part of Girls Inc. programs for two or more years are able to apply for a Girls Inc. National College Scholarship.

For more information, please contact Sherry Cook, Program Manager, at scook@girlsincsa.org or at 210-298-5862.
