About Our Programs for Elementary School Girls

At Girls Inc. of Metro Denver, we know that our future leaders will be a generation of women leaders- and women leaders start as girls. Beginning the summer after kindergarten, our programs for elementary schoolers encourage girls* to explore, build a positive self-image, and develop their voice. Programs include age-appropriate financial literacy programs, nutrition and healthy living, early STEM programming, a robust mentoring program, and much more. Thoughtful programs, delivered in a pro-girl environment, that is physically socially, and emotionally safe, provide girls with the tools they need to succeed today and in the future.

*Our programs are intended for youth who identify as girls (regardless of their assigned sex at birth) or gender-expansive (non-binary, gender non-conforming, and/or exploring their gender identity or expression). 

How old does my girl need to be to enroll in Girls Inc.'s programs for elementary schoolers?

Girls must be 6 years old or have completed kindergarten in order to enroll in both our after school and summer camp programs. The maximum age eligible to enroll in our elementary school programs is 12 years old or 5th grade. We offer additional programs for girls in 6th grade through college.

Programs fees for all of our programs are offered on a sliding scale based on your household income. We are proud to share that no girl is ever turned away due to inability to pay.

After-school programs: Transportation from school to our center may be available if 5 or more girls attend Girls Inc. from your school, with consideration of distance from our center and school end time. Summer: No transportation to the center is provided. Girls must be dropped off and picked up

We invite you and your girl(s) to take a tour of our center on West Colfax. Contact us to set up an appointment. Email Adonia Arteaga, Manager of Center Programs at aarteaga@gidenver.org or call (303) 893-4363 Ext. 130.
