“Smart Girls” program ongoing support

Boys & Girls Club of Fond du Lac

2,000

The funds awarded to Boys & Girls Club of Fond du lac will be used to support an existing SMART Girls program which targets girls aged 11-16 at the Johnsonville Boys & Girls Club.

Goals of the program include:

The program consists of two main components. Love Yourself explores issues like body image, physical growth, healthy coping skills, eating disorders and other issues related to physical well-being as a teenage girl.  Love & Be Loved explores the importance of healthy relationships including friendships, dating, communication skills, healthy boundaries and safety.

It is expected that 50 different girls will participate regularly in the program through 2019. In 2019 they will also be adding boys into one of the “Date Smart” sessions that deal with developing mutual respect.
