STRONG SMART BOLD

2ANNUAL0 1REPORT8 PROUDLY SERVING ANDERSON, KNOX AND BLOUNT COUNTIES


Girls today face real and profound challenges. In fact, 1 in 4 girls experiences sexual abuse or sexual assault by age 17. One in 5 teen girls report experiencing a mental disorder. Too many girls are missing out on education opportunities to prepare them for college and careers, particularly girls from low-income communities. Many girls miss out on these opportunities to break poverty cycles, explore differing careers and be exposed to experiences to help them grow as individuals.

2018 ANNUAL REPORT / GIRLSINCTNV.ORG

But at Girls Inc., girls are empowered and equipped to overcome these barriers and succeed. They receive research-based programming and supports proven to achieve positive outcomes in the areas of health (Strong), education (Smart), and life skills (Bold). The Girls Inc. Experience, our comprehensive approach to whole girl development, allows girls to discover and build their inherent strengths, develop resilience, and plan for and work towards their future goals. Knowing the transformative difference we’re making in the lives of girls, we are compelled to grow. And I’m proud to say in fiscal year 2018, we did just that. We grew the number of girls served, in the communities served and in the program opportunities offered to participating girls! Girls have opportunities to explore exciting career fields, learn from each other and develop skills necessary to advocate for themselves! I conclude by expressing my deep appreciation to you, our donors, friends, and supporters who make this work possible. We could not have gotten this far without your belief in us -- and in the remarkable girls we serve. I look forward to what we will accomplish together! In warmest regards, Rhoni Basden, Executive Director

WHAT WE DO Girls Inc. of the Tennessee Valley believes that every girl yields the power to change the world. We believe she can and will move mountains. In order for her to realize her potential power, she deserves a safe, brave environment - mentally and physically. She deserves to feel fully seen and heard, she deserves to be taken seriously for whom she is, what she does and how she thinks and feels within her world. The Girls Inc. national organization has roots dating back to 1864. In the Tennessee Valley, we've been inspiring girls to grow up strong, smart and bold for over 40 years. Girls Inc. empowers girls and elevates their rights and opportunities through direct service to girls and through advocacy. Girls are surrounded by a sisterhood of support with expectations, shared drive and a solid foundation of mutual respect. At Girls Inc. of the Tennessee Valley, it isn't just one thing that helps girls grow into healthy, educated and independent women. It isn't just the great programs, the access to technology or the amazing community partners. It's not just the daily homework help, the healthy snacks, the mentoring opportunities or the pro-girl environment. It's ALL of it!

PROGRAMS WITH PURPOSE

Our Programs help girls develop life skills, a passion for learning and experiences in the community and opportunities they may not otherwise have available to them. Our trained, mentoring staff work to create a positive pro-girl environment with sustained exposure to intentional programming geared to address girls' specific challenges and needs. We teach girls the skills needed to advocate for themselves and their communities. Our girls are encouraged to take risks, experiment and practice the skills they learn to master physical, intellectual and emotional challenges at their own pace. Girls Inc. girls are empowered to grow up.

GIRLS INC. EXPERIENCE

The Girls Inc. experience consists of an environment, people and programming that, together, empower girls to succeed. These six essential elements work together to provide a holistic approach that is grounded in a belief and girls' rights and abilities.
