A Message from our Executive Director:

We have always known that being a part of a community like Girls Inc. is special. This community allows for a safe space for girls to be themselves, develop strong relationships with their peers and mentors, and develop an enhanced educational experience. I feel better knowing that despite the hardships that we are all facing in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, this has not changed.

Despite the fact that our center based and outreach programs are not running in a traditional sense, our staff is continually working to make sure that girls have access to programs and necessary resources for them to continue to be strong, smart, and bold. We are developing program and food boxes that can be delivered to the homes of girls and families in need. These boxes include nonperishable food items, snacks, books, and educational programming activates, and materials. We want to ensure that despite the fact that girls may not be able to attend traditional programs, they still have resources to thrive during this time.

At Girls Inc. of TN Valley, we are also working diligently to develop virtual resources to keep us in contact with girls in the community. We are running online coding classes every Friday at 2:00pm where girls can not only work their brains, but connect with their friends and peers for some fun STEM lessons. We are also developing online yoga classes for girls to participate in, and we will update our website and social media pages with more information when we have those details.

For more information on programming and food boxes, or to participate in the online coding classes, please contact Alanna Kosier (Vice President of Programs and Operations) at

Thank you for your continued involvement and support of Girls Inc.!
