Join us in honoring the 2020 class of Girls Inc.
of San Diego graduating seniors!

This year 9 out of 10 of the Girls Inc. seniors have been accepted to colleges and universities and will start their post-secondary education in the Fall. One graduate will be proudly serving the country in the armed forces.

Your contribution will make it possible for graduates to participate in the online Girls Inc. College Bound, Job Ready program this summer!

The College Bound, Job Ready program provides graduates with a road map to successfully transition from high school to college. Girls participate in planning coursework, practice study skills and goal setting. Many girls are first-generation college students who can benefit from the confidence, knowledge and skills this program provides them as the anticipate the start of college and university.

And to prepare girls from low-income communities to stay successfully matriculated in school, this program prepares girls to apply for on and off-campus jobs. Girls learn skills including resume writing and virtual interviewing, while exploring ways to find jobs and apply for them.

Yovana is driven to make her mother proud and show her thanks for everything her mom has done for her and her family.

Debbie

Girls Inc. is a special place for her to be unapologetically herself. A survivor of sexual assault, participating in Girls Inc. gave Debbie a place where she could finally share her truth about her devastating experience. Debbie’s goal is to attend community college and transfer to University of California Los Angeles to pursue a degrees Social Work and/or Criminal Justice. Her dream is to advocate for survivors of sexual assault and sexual harassment. Debbie’s final message to any girl who is going or has gone through a similar experience is, “it is never too late to share your story.”

Kayla and her family immigrated to the U.S. from Sudan, Africa six years ago. Through a lot of hard work and sacrifice she is now a citizen of the United States and is proud of her rich Sudan background and religion. Kayla will be attending San Diego Miramar College in the fall and studying Political Science. What she enjoys most about being part of Girls Inc. is sharing my thoughts in a space that values and appreciates what she has to say.

Avery

Avery is on her way to University of California Irvine to pursue a degree in Criminal Justice. Her dream is to bring justice to families and make an impact in people’s lives. Avery’s Girls Inc. journey started her junior year when she was recommended by a counselor who felt she needed a supportive group that would encourage her to take her academics and personal growth more seriously. Girls Inc. quickly became an important part of her life. She valued the opportunity to have conversations about topics most people are afraid to talk about.

Tania

After abusing alcohol throughout middle school and high school, and subsequently completing a recovery program, Tania joined Girls Inc. in her junior year of high school. With the support of positive mentors and peers in Girls Inc., Tania focused on bringing her grades back up and now celebrates her high school graduation. She will be the first person in her family to pursue post-secondary education. Through her participation in Girls Inc., she has influenced younger girls to make better choices and focus on school, so they do not fall into the same pattern she did. She plans to pursue a degree in Counseling to continue that work and help youth with substance and alcohol abuse.

Ashley

Ashley is passionate about women empowering one another. She enjoys being a part of Girls Inc. because it is a space where girls can support one another and girls everywhere. Ashley wants to study to be an orthodontist so she can help others gain confidence. She believes that helping others gain confidence will empower them to achieve their dreams and goals!
