Over the past twenty years, Deloitte professionals have invested in the girls, families and staff of Girls Inc. of Greater Philadelphia & Southern New Jersey. Deloitte volunteers have served as local and national Girls Inc. board members, led career exploration workshops, and coordinated Read-A-thons and book drives for our Early Grade Literacy programs at local school partners. In addition, their people have designed and led professional development seminars for Girls Inc. staff and interns on Deloitte’s Impact Day for the last three years. Activities have included leadership development, resume writing workshops and networking strategies. Deloitte’s generous financial and service commitment continues to enable our organization to provide intentional programs in the Greater Philadelphia Community.
