La Conner Connects With SMART Girls
This world is a big place for all youth, and for girls, growing up means changing relationships and friendships, changing bodies and changing self images. SMART (Skills Mastery And Resistance Training) Girls is a group that meets weekly to talk about these topics, and others, in a fun, engaging and safe manner where girls can feel comfortable sharing their experiences and questions. Girls are exposed to new ideas and given the knowledge and tools that will help them on their road to creating a strong, smart, and positive sense of self.
Each week, as new topics are discussed, members will have the opportunity to earn SMART Girls Badges to decorate and affix to their own personal SMART Girls Journal. At the first meeting, girls talked about the meaning of words such as trust, respect and effective communication. Youth then worked together to develop a set of group values and used them to create a Smart Girls Contract. This contract will ensure that each girl will have the opportunity to have her voice heard and to enjoy SMART Girls meetings to the fullest!
La Conner SMART Girls is open to girls ages 8-10 and meets on Thursdays from 4:45 – 5:45pm. For more information regarding this program, please contact Program Director Leah Vazquez at (360) 466-3672 or email: email@example.com
