Girls Inc. of NYC is a unique non-profit founded to educate serve young women ages 6-18 years old from diverse, ethnic, racial, and social-economic backgrounds. This special organization gives girls the confidence and skills necessary to succeed in college, in their careers, and in their communities. The Police Athletic League (or PAL) of NYC, together with NYPD and the law enforcement community, supports and inspires New York City youths to realize their full individual potential as productive members of society.
“Being a successful product of inner-city schools, I’m a firm believer in the mission of Girls, Inc. of NYC and PAL of NYC,” says La La Anthony. “Their objectives are to develop a community of self-confident and innovative young people, empowering them to be tomorrow’s leaders, particularly in the fields of math, science, engineering and technology.”
