Zambia Malone is a first grader at Glen Iris Elementary School and has attended the Girls Inc. Crestwood Center for two years. Her favorite subject is Art, and in her free time she enjoys drawing, eating and playing the drums. She hopes to play in a band when she grows up. When asked to choose her favorite thing about Girls Inc., Zambia just couldn’t decide. “I like a lot of things. I can’t pick one,” she said.
At Girls Inc., we strive to inspire all girls to be strong, smart, and bold. We help girls reach their fullest potential by providing gender-specific, age-appropriate programming that teaches life skills and promotes healthy life choices. The Girls Inc. organization has been named one of the Top Five Youth Serving Nonprofits by Philanthropedia, a Guidestar publication.
In 2012, Girls Inc. of Central Alabama services were delivered to over 7,000 Birmingham area youth. Our research-based programs focus on health and wellness, economic literacy, and career preparedness. We recognize that the climate for girls is always changing and we pursue programs that address the greatest needs for school-age girls in our community. We are committed to effectiveness measurement and collaboration in order to provide valuable services to as many girls as possible.
