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.
