According to a report released by Girls Inc., a study done by the American Institutes for Research found that girls who participate in the organization have a significant advantage over their peers who do not receive the same supports offered by Girls Inc.

The report, “Stronger, Smarter, Bolder: Girls Take the Lead” looked at multiple factors for girls, including physical activity, mental health, substance use, teen pregnancy, educational achievement, STEM experiences, graduation rates, juvenile justice, healthy relationships and leadership opportunities.
