Girls Inc. is a national non profit service girls ages 6-18. Here at the TYWLS Bronx site we provide FREE after school programming for middle schoolers. We provide after school clubs that meet a wide array of student needs and interests. Some of these clubs include dance, CSI, arts and crafts, engineering, game design, fitness, soccer, natural hair, basketball, DIY beauty products, jewelry making, nail design, cultural exploration, self defense, acting and much much more. Girls Inc. also facilitates during 9th period of the school day on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. PowerHour is where some of our students engage in our research-based programming in areas like Social Emotional Skills, Economic Literacy, and Media Literacy. All of our programming is delivered by trained professionals who focus on the development of the whole girl, supporting, mentoring, and guiding girls in an affirming, pro-girl environment. Here, girls learn to value their whole selves, discover and develop their inherent strengths, and receive the support they need to navigate the challenges they face.
The Girls Inc. Application is needed for all middle schoolers because of the Power Hour 9th period facilitated by Girls Inc.
