SMART Girls Program at Council Bluffs and Carter Lake Boys & Girls Clubs – CORE Grant

SMART Girls is a program designed to meet the developmental needs of Club girls through curriculum that address topics related to health, fitness and self-esteem enhancement. The program offers dynamic instructional sessions, highly participatory activities, field trips and mentoring opportunities with adult women. Club girls explore their own attitudes and values as they build skills to care for their changing bodies, learn to understand their ongoing emotional growth and develop positive relationships with peers and adults. The goal of SMART Girls is to develop healthy and positive understandings and attitudes related to the transition to adulthood in female Club members.
