Strong, Smart and Bold Winners
The Helen McLoraine Scholarship Fund was established in memory of Helen M. McLoraine, a pioneer in the oil industry and a woman who embodied the Girls Incorporated mission of inspiring all girls to be strong, smart, and bold. The scholarship fund was established to carry on her legacy by inspiring girls to be active in community service, strive for higher education, and gain advanced skills and knowledge they need to realize bright futures. The Scholarship fund provides competitive awards to girls who have participated in Girls Inc. of Metro Denver programs. They are designed to make post-secondary education more accessible to young women by offsetting financial costs, as well as inspire girls to pursue rewarding careers.
In order to uphold our mission and vision and be effective advocates and allies for all girls, Girls Inc. of Metro Denver is committed to inclusiveness and anti-oppression on all levels of our organization. It is our stance that inclusiveness and anti-oppression work give integrity and validity to our mission as well as power and effectiveness to our programs. It allows us to address the root causes of social issues that affect the girls we serve. We serve all girls at our organization, therefore we have to be inclusive of all communities, cultures and experiences. Without inclusiveness, we will never be able to reach the full potential and power of our programs. Our vision is empowered girls in an equitable society; we change lives and we take that seriously. Inclusiveness is imperative to make it happen.
