Strong Girls Inc.
Strong Girls, Inc. was developed from a drive to reduce poverty, particularly for women in Miami-Dade County where the poverty rates are higher than the National and State averages. Our program partners with schools in Miami-Dade to provide the skills and tools that young girls need to stay focused on learning. We begin in 3rd grade and provide continuous support and social and emotional skill-building to help girls stay on a path toward higher education and career. We view academic proficiency and positive social emotional development as crucial precursors to self-sufficiency. We envision our girls graduating from high school with the capacity, determination and support needed to break the cycle of poverty. Without meaningful intervention, resources and support, girls living in poverty stand to repeat the cycle, regardless of the best intentions. Strong Girls, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
