Girls Incorporated速 of Omaha

THE GIRLS INC. EXPERIENCE At Girls Inc., it isn’t any one thing that helps girls grow into healthy, educated and independent women. It isn’t just the great programs. Or the access to technology. Or the amazing community partnerships. Or the daily homework help. Or the healthy meals and snacks. Or the pro-girl, girl-only space. It’s all of it combined. If you ask us, however, we will tell you that the “secret sauce” is all about the caring, nurturing adults.

Success adds up!


GIRLS INC. STAFF TEAM = FEARLESS + CARING They encourage young artists to be self-expressive, but let fierce athletes compete on the court. They expose girls to engineering AND manicures. They are cool with pink princess tiaras AND construction site hard hats. They take on skinned knees (Hello Kitty Band Aids work wonders) and skinned hearts (first crushes, BFF issues – if you have girls, you know the drill. If you don’t, you’re going to have to take our word for it…). They know their way around hot glue guns, soldering irons, microscopes, and robots. They dispense college advice and homework supplies. And glitter. Lots of glitter. And you ain’t seen nothing ‘til you’ve seen them belt out “Let It Go” on karaoke day.

World-renowned investor, philanthropist, and Omaha home boy Warren Buffett donated his 2006 Cadillac DTS to be auctioned off with proceeds to benefit the girls and their programs. Limited miles (20k), good condition (he did do McDonald’s drive through in the car‌), and, oh yeah, a personally autographed dashboard helped the boss roadster go for $122,500 ($110,500 over the Blue Book value). Shout out to Proxibid for hosting the successful auction!

ALUM – SYMONE SANDERS #KeepCalmAndDoTheMath #SheSumsItUp Symone Sanders used to say, “I was good; Girls Inc. made me great!” Regardless of your politics, you have to admire a 26-year-old who was tapped to be the national press secretary for Bernie Sander’s presidential campaign. She is all over the national news and she frequently mentions Girls Inc!

“I was good; e G ir ls Inc. ma”d me great!


#CarryItForward Tess mentored DaNaya when she was a girl, now DaNaya mentors Makiyah and Brandayah. While she is attending college, “Ms. DaNaya” is also a program facilitator. Once a Girls Inc. member, DaNaya is now one of the nurturing, caring adults in the Girls Inc. village.
