I love this program! I went through it twice as a camper and it was so amazing that I returned to volunteer as a junior guide. Smart-Girl really helped me and the girls I was with talk candidly about real issues that girls face and get real advice from young women. I feel so fortunate that I got to help other girls the way this program helped me.

Smart-Girl is amazing. I worked for the program initially as a high school group leader and have stayed involved as a volunteer ever since. The organization's fundamental commitment to continued improved has allowed it to grow and thrive and to meet the ever changing needs of girls caught between childhood and adolescence.

Smart Girls is a fantastic program for helping young girls build self esteem and leadership skills. My daughter loved participating in the activities. She learned a lot of new skills and different ways to approach challenges. As both a mom and volunteer, I highly recommend this program!

My daughter attended Smart-Girl summer camp before she started middle school. Despite her challenges with social integration, Smart-Girl gave her great skills that really prepared her for the tough years ahead of her. Middle school was a success for her. Thanks Smart-Girl!
