For Sponsorship Information

Since four women founded the nation’s first Boy’s Club, the Dashaway Club, in Hartford in 1860, women have played a critical role in our organization’s history.

Today women continue to play a vital role in shaping the lives of Hartford’s youth. The need to invest in, inspire and empower the next generation of young women leaders in our Clubs through SMART Girls has never been more important.

About SMART Girls:  The SMART Girls program focuses on
guiding girls in developing and adopting a healthy attitude and lifestyle, as well as acquiring and maintaining a positive self-concept, positive peer relationships, and sound decision-making skills. That’s even more important today as our youth grapple with the social, emotional and financial impact of the pandemic along with issues of racial and social justice.
