The Lower Eastside Girls Club provides a place where girls and young women 8-23 can grow, learn, have fun, and develop confidence in themselves and their ability to make a difference in the world. By delivering strong arts, literacy, science, health and leadership programs we provide girls with the vision to plan – and the tools to build – their future. All Girls Club programs develop environmental, entrepreneurial and ethical leadership in the girls we serve.

The Girls Club also runs several social venture businesses that offer job training and employment opportunities for teens: The Art+Community Gallery, La Tiendita Fair Trade and Girl Made Gift Shop at the Essex Market, the Farm Girls Community Farmers Market, and the Sweet Things Bake Shop.

The Girls Club is in the final stages of construction on a $20 million Girls Club facility – a LEED Gold state of the art ‘green’ building that will serve hundreds of economically disadvantaged girls and their families. The new Girls Club Center for Community will open in 2013.

下东区女孩俱乐部是一个为8-23岁的年轻女性提供成长,学习,娱乐,培养自信,以及提高改变这个世界能力的场所。通过提供扎实的艺术,文学,科学,健康,以及领导力培训项目,我们为女孩们提供了策划及构建未来的愿景及工具。女孩俱乐部中的培训项目均可提升我们所服务的女孩在环境,创业,以及道德方面的领导力。

女孩俱乐部同时也经营一些为少女提供岗位培训及雇用机会的社会企业,包括:艺术与社区画廊,位于Essex市场的La Tiendita公平交易市场以及手工礼品店,女孩农夫社区农夫市场,以及甜品烘培店。

现在,价值两千万美元的少女俱乐部设施更新项目正已经进入到最后阶段:此项目是一个以Leed Gold (绿色能源与环境设计先锋金奖)标准设计的环保建筑。这个建筑将会为上百个经济贫困的女孩及其家庭提供服务,新的少女俱乐部中心将会在2013年向社区开放。
