Our Mission: Inspiring all girls to be strong, smart and bold.
Girls Inc. Limestone provides life-skills education and mentoring programs for girls,
and is at the heart of girls' lives and forefront of the girls' rights movement. With
programs that are grounded in research and tested in the field, our organization
celebrates and empowers girls and young women, and advocates for an equitable
world. The compelling voices and perspectives of girls and women are woven
throughout our work, which includes engaging programs, original research that
highlights underlying causes and effective solutions for girls' issues, and persuasive
advocacy at both local and national levels.
Girls Inc. Limestone was founded as Big Sisters of Kingston in 1972 by a small group
of women dedicated to improving the life situation of girls in the Kingston community.
Since that time, we have grown to serve more than 1,400 girls each year. We have
expanded our life-skills education programs, and have taken on a new name and a
new national organization. These changes have led to significant growth, and a better
ability to meet the needs of girls and young women in our community.
