Girls in the Game promotes the health and wellness of girls of color in underserved communities in Baltimore City by providing education and fitness programming at no cost to participants. The curriculum addresses significant issues such as smart eating, body image, bullying, healthy relationships, conflict resolution, diversity, and goal setting.

In addition to the Baltimore After School Program, Girls in the Game has expanded its program to include Teen Squad, a city-wide leadership program for teen age girls. The organization also holds monthly Saturday Game Days to keep girls engaged on the weekends.
