Girls in Action, Inc.
In the summer of 2008, a little girl had the idea of starting a girls group. Being an only child, this Girl developed an extensively broad imagination at a very young age, developing her own dynamic ideas and opinions. These ideas included her views of the world and thoughts of what she wanted to do to positively impact the world. Eager to share her ideas with other girls, she got permission from her mother to begin a group for girls and in September of 2008 Girls in Action, Inc. was born.
Girls in Action, Inc. provides opportunities for Girls to develop and apply leadership skills. Opportunities like going to The White House, conducting interviews, developing campaigns and taking part in leadership workshops are just a few examples of how Girls in Action, Inc. helps to give its members a voice.
