SMART Girls Program for Carter Lake and Council Bluffs Clubs

While Boys & Girls Clubs of America designed this 10-week, evidence-based curriculum for implementation in Clubs across the nation, it will be customized to meet the unique needs of the members served in these two western Iowa communities. SMART Girls gives girls the space, support and tools to navigate adolescence and to emerge as strong, healthy, young adults. SMART Girls tackles issues that girls deal with every day – from troubles and triumphs with friends and family, to struggles with body image and self-esteem, to the impact of school stress, bullying, and more – in a safe and open environment. Boys and Girls Clubs of the Midlands is a first-time IWF grantee.
