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. When possible, the organization also holds monthly Saturday Game Days to keep girls engaged on the weekends.

At Girls in the Game, every girl finds her voice, discovers her strength, and leads with confidence through fun and active sports, health, and leadership programs. Girls in the Game offers year-round programs as well as one-day events. Each program offers participants the opportunity to be physically active, learn about healthy lifestyle choices, and improve their leadership in a safe, all-girl setting. The programming also includes Days of Play, Teen Club, Sports and Leadership Summer Camp, and Girls’ Triathlon Team.
