Smart Girls Group

Smart Girls training is a five-to-eight session curriculum created by North Carolina Educators from the Guilford County Health Department. This training is evidence-based and has been proven to change behavior among preteens/teens. 

Smart Girls Life Skills Training Mission
To educate and empower young women by providing information and skills necessary to develop healthy relationships and make smart decisions throughout life.

Smart Girls Vision
Empowered young women who are happy, healthy and successful in life.

Smart Girls Believe

  1. We need to be happy with who we are... and this requires daily exercise.
  2. Important decisions are made every day... we must stop and think about tomorrow.
  3. We must plan for the future... it’s a never ending process.
  4. We must maintain healthy family connections... they guide and protect us along the way.

Along with training, every student receives a meal/snack at each session attended; a stipend of up to $50-$100 for attendance upon completion of the program; and the option to join our Teen Connections Leadership Council which allows students to continue their monthly education and give back to the community through volunteer work.
