Raising the Next Generation of Ethical, Environmental and Entrepreneurial Leaders!
The Lower Eastside Girls Club provides a place where girls and young women 8-23 can grow, learn, have fun, and develop confidence in themselves and their ability to make a difference in the world. By delivering strong arts, literacy, science, health and leadership programs we provide girls with the vision to plan – and the tools to build – their future.
The Girls Club also runs several social venture businesses that offer job training and employment opportunities for teens and young mothers: The Art+Community Gallery, La Tiendita Fair Trade and Girl Made Gift Shop at the Essex Market, Celebrate Cafe, and the Sweet Things Bake Shop.
The Girls Club recently opened a $20 million Girls Club facility – a LEED Gold state of the art ‘green’ building that will serve hundreds of economically disadvantaged girls and their families!
