Girls Incorporated of Jacksonville (formerly Girls Clubs of America) began as a project of the Pilot Club of Jacksonville. It was incorporated in 1970 and became affiliated with the Girls Clubs of America in 1971. In 1990, Girls Clubs of America changed their name to Girls Incorporated on national and local levels. Girls Inc. of Jacksonville has two centers. During the summer we have two summer camp centers.
Today, Girls Incorporated of Jacksonville serves more than 1,700 girls everyday in after-school programs and summer camps. Our after-school programs provide a supporting, safe environment, offer homework assistance, and enrichment activities like dance, computer, art, story telling, and karate. In addition to our after-school programs, Girls Inc. of Jacksonville reaches more than 800 girls in our Outreach programs that build self-confidence, self-esteem and help girls make better life decisions.
