Our History

Girls Inc. was founded in Carpinteria in 1971 as a summer camp for 33 girls. The club incorporated in 1974, began year-round programming in 1975, purchased a two-bedroom house in 1978, and affiliated with Girls Clubs of America in 1982. In 1990, Girls Club changed its name to Girls Incorporated and our affiliate followed suit.

In 1994, Girls Inc. of Carpinteria began a $2.4 million capital campaign resulting in the building of a 16,000 square foot facility, which tripled its programming capacity.
