Girls Inc. Tests Safe Online Community

10/25/2006:   A new website exclusively for girls promises to offer a safe, closed online community where they can create their own unique homepages and log onto the site to connect with other members through discussion and mentor boards.

Girls Inc. Online is being piloted for nine months with funding from the AT&T Foundation. Girls Incorporated, a nonprofit organization that inspires all girls to be strong, smart, and bold, designed the site.

In addition to meeting other girls with common interests, Girls Inc. members can participate in live discussions with women in interesting and unique professions, find out about health and relationships, learn about dealing with money, and investigate exciting careers.

Girl Inc. stresses it is a closed community and that people surfing the web will not be able to access the site. After a member completes an application, a third party confirms her identity.
