Girls Incorporated

Girls Incorporated of Greater Lowell helps girls succeed.

Although it wasn’t initially founded as “Girls Incorporated,” the organization dates back to the early days of the American Industrial Revolution in 1864, when young girls worked in difficult factory conditions throughout New England. Working for decades as individual unaffiliated groups to advance the causes of girls, a group 19 likeminded organizations met in 1945 and formed Girls Club of America. The organization grew through the years, continuing to assist girls in their personal growth, and helping to better the lives of girls, which it continues to do today.

Similarly, Girls Incorporated of Greater Lowell has an equally rich history of helping inspire and nurture girls. The local girls’ group was formed in 1917 as an organization called War Community Service. In 1945, the organization was one of 19 groups who became charter members of Girls Club of America, and it moved into its current location on Worthen Street. In 1990, the organization changed its name to Girls Incorporated, and it continues to work with girls in Lowell to help them succeed in their endeavors.

Today, Girls Incorporated of Greater Lowell has a number of programs for girls in the area. They offer after-school programs, summer programs, outreach programs, volunteering, and other programs. They also have scholarships for girls to attend two and four year colleges.
