About Us

We’re Dedicated to Empowering Girls

Girls Incorporated of York Region is a non-profit youth organization that is dedicated to empowering girls and young women to seek the highest quality of life possible.  The programs that we offer are designed to help girls develop to the fullest of their capacities in all areas of life.  We actively strive to enhance confidence and self-esteem in girls and young women, while giving them the skills and tools they need in order to be empowered, productive and contributing members of society.  Girls are encouraged to develop their voice and to take an active role in shaping the programs that they choose to participate in.  Girls require and deserve the awareness, attention, and commitment of a wide range of individuals and organizations to promote their healthy development.  Girls benefit from programs and strategies that build on their strengths and encourage them to explore meaningful possibilities for their futures.

Girls Inc. of York has been operating in York Region and Bradford since 1979 and is an affiliate of Girls Incorporated, which has been serving girls as far back as 1864.  As members of National Girls Incorporated, we continue to maintain the vision of empowering girls and an equitable society by being the nation’s leading voice for girls.
