Formerly known as the Manatee County Girls Club, Just for Girls provides year-round academic support, behavior redirection, and character development programming for girls ages 5-17, Mon-Fri from 6:30 am-6:00 pm.

With three Leadership and Learning Centers located throughout Manatee County, Just for Girls provides a full complement of programs and activities before school, after school, and during school breaks. Just for Girls’ two alternative education programs for K-5th grades (JFG Elementary) and 6th-8th grades (JFG Middle), provide academic opportunities for girls who are struggling in traditional public schools.

Just for Girls’ purpose is to provide the framework within which girls can triumph over trauma and achieve their full potential academically and personally. All programs are provided at no cost to Manatee County families living in poverty or crisis.
