    Thursday's Girls' Celebration Event was my best day so far in 8 months and 1 week!  Mayor Konnie Lukes talked about her experiences in the Girls Club in Waterbury, CT as she proclaimed Thursday Girls Celebration Day in Worcester; the trustees of the Fuller Foundation received a picture/citation, and their very own, and very special "admission ticket" to use the Fuller Foundation pool at Girls Inc this summer; Linda Cavaioli and Jean King each received standing ovations to honor them as advocates for girls; and Jennifer Paradee gave us such a beautiful - and enduring - gift of th

  • Girls Inc a Partner in the Worcester Summer Pool Program

    The recently dedicated Fuller Aquatics Center at Girls Inc on Providence Street will be a busy place this summer.  A public-private partnership was formed with three other youth serving agencies (YMCA, YWCA, & Boys and Girls Club), community based youth serving organizations and the City of Worcester over the last few weeks to address some of the needs created when the decision was made to close the City pools this summer.  Through the City Manager's office, Community Based Organizations will be able to coordinate swim times for their members through this program, with possible

  • Spring Update!

    After a VERY LONG AND COLD winter, spring is coming! All of the signs are here! A couple of days of sunshine and 60 degrees - then back to the 30's and a snow squall... and then pretty soon the trees will turn green again and the flowers will bloom, and we will start to forget the ice storm and the 20 foot mountains of snow that piled up in parking lots and the downed limbs from trees - and enter into the renewal of Spring!

    Here at Girls Inc, there is LOTS going on as we get ready for spring and we want to shout out that good news across Central Massachusetts!
