About

“We Can Do It!”

Girls in our program are exposed to a vast amount of experiences from arts and crafts to construction and mechanics. The mission of the Girl with Grit Program is to give young women the skills, confidence, mentors, and experiences that help develop life skills, career paths, and passions. 

We believe strong girls grow to be strong women.

Girl with Grit Program is registered as a 501c3 nonprofit.
