Where She Succeeds

As we approach 160 years of success, our nonprofit organization remains steadfast in our commitment to the empowerment of girls and women. We are ambitious about adding programs and expanding access that makes our center a primary community resource. With this in mind, we are sunsetting our previous name, Girls Inc. of Western Connecticut, and establishing Park Central as our new name.

Park Central will continue its wide range of popular programs including academic tutoring, art, empowerment, cooking, dance, sewing/fashion design, music, karate, and STEAM, offered by the wonderful mentors and professionals that have been with us over the years. We will continue our out of school and camp sessions, with plans for additional programs for girls of all ages, women, adults, and parents/children, while also offering our center for other community endeavors.
