Cathy Duffy Cullity, CEO of Girls Inc. of NH, accepts the NH Advantage Award at the Business and Industry Association of NH Annual Dinner.

 

Girls Inc. of New Hampshire was honored by the Business and Industry Association (BIA) of NH with the NH Advantage Award at BIA’s 104th annual dinner on Oct. 18. The award honors businesses, organizations, and projects that magnify NH’s special character and quality of life in consequential ways.

“We’re thrilled the BIA recognized the importance of empowering girls to be strong, smart and bold, which is Girls Inc.’s mission,” says Cathy Duffy Cullity, CEO of Girls Inc. of NH. “Girls walk through our doors every day and into the Girls Inc. experience.”

“You hear a 6-year-old reading her first book or the cheers as our young runners cross the race’s finish line. You see the joy of the young girl who models the dress that she made in our fashion design class; you taste the nutritious meals the girls created in our cooking classes. You appreciate the women volunteers mentoring our girls and discussing their future careers and dreams. It’s incredible to see the girls’ potential.”

The female-focused organization’s programs tackle demanding areas such as math and science education, pregnancy and drug abuse prevention, media and economic literacy adolescent health, violence prevention, careers and leadership, and sports participation.

On the heels of celebrating its prestigious award, Girls Inc. is currently renovating its Nashua center, which will be ready for the organization’s recoil in November.  The Nashua center, along with centers in Concord and Manchester, offer an array of activities and programs for girls, including a seven-week summer leadership program, after-school classes and activities, free dinner during the weekdays, and full-day programming for children ages three to five-years-old.

Girls Inc. of NH offers its services to girls ages five to 18. The nonprofit organization inspires girls to be strong (through healthy living), smart (through education), and bold (through independence).
