Smart-Girl is a prevention and enrichment program designed to engage girls in activities that develop their social-emotional skills. Smart-Girl gives girls the chance to think about and discuss the challenges they encounter and to formulate and practice appropriate and productive responses. Through this process, Smart-Girl nurtures girls’ social-emotional intelligence and critical thinking skills – qualities proven to lead to success in life.
Smart-Girl has been in Cache County schools for two years. The Center for Women and Gender hosted the first Cache County Smart-Girl summer camp June 2015.
Each session focuses on a specific topic, such as:
- Critical thinking
- Assertiveness and refusal skills
- Healthy decision making
- Smart media usage
Smart-Girl is a national effort which partners with schools in Cache County through the Center for Women and Gender and Aggie Care. Learn more about the program on the Smart-Girl website.
