FEATURED

- July -

Boys & Girls Club - SMART Girls

Boys & Girls Clubs of Weld County has a successful history as a premiere youth development organization that provides exceptional programs, mentorship and services for young people. While programs span from Education to Sports & Recreation, our Health & Wellness programs encourage members to think about life decisions and goals.

 

We believe in, and research supports, the importance of “girls only” programming being offered in every Clubhouse across Weld County. To that end, SMART Girls is a program designed to support the developmental needs of girls who are growing leaders in their community. Additionally, SMART Girls pairs tested and proven concepts with gender- and age-specific information to assist young women in developing the skills necessary to lead long, healthy and prosperous lives. 

 

The program consists of health, fitness, prevention, education, and self-esteem building activities and discussions that inspire girls to be mindful of who they are becoming.  Throughout the semester, girls learn the importance of continuously developing healthy relationships and self-awareness though activities, journaling, field trips, mentorship and choosing healthy habits

Decadent Desserts will be back in 2021

Thank you
