INDIGO GIRLS

KINGSTON

Indigo Girls Kingston was the first branch of Indigo Girls Group. 

At IGG Kingston, we offer multiple girls clubs and workshops for elementary through high school levels. We also offer programming options for organizations and communities in the Kingston area. This year we have three girls clubs running and we are hoping to increase our engagement with high schools. 

Our programming focuses on providing all self-identified girls with the tools to become empowered, knowledgeable young women. All of our programming is free, adaptable and targeted to the groups we are working with. Contact us to book a program, learn more, or donate!
