ABOUT GIRLS INC. OF TARRANT COUNTY
Girls Inc. of Tarrant County was established in 1976 as the Arlington Girls Club by a group of community leaders that saw a need for comprehensive programs for girls in their community. Our local affiliate entered the Girls Club network at an exciting time when our mission was progressing to provide programs, opportunities, and advocacy promoting equity for girls. Through the decades, we evolved from the Arlington Girls Club to Girls Inc. of Tarrant County, this drive for equity and determination to provide life-changing opportunities to girls has remained consistent and grown exponentially.
Girls Inc. is needed more now than ever. Today girls represent the fastest growing segment of the juvenile justice system. The U.S. still has the highest teen pregnancy rate among developed nations. And sadly, the most easily overlooked reality is that girls are still frequently left out of the highest expectations and opportunities in math, science, technology, and academic achievement and lack the skills to be confident leaders in their schools and communities.
