Can you imagine having to leave your 8-year-old child home alone for their online school day while you have to go to work?
This month, to the huge relief of parents and school administrators, we’ve opened our Girls Inc. Learning Pod. We’ve turned our Mariposa Center into a safe, socially distanced classroom. Now, instead of being home alone, 13 girls come here every day for elementary school online, supervised by two of our dedicated staff members.
Of course, we’re still meeting girls where they are, bringing the Girls Inc. Experience into homes and classrooms. Our fall season is well underway exciting and educating girls ages 5-18 with new creative online programs.
“Girls Inc. has given my family a sense of normalcy we never thought we’d feel again.”
