Mission Statement

The mission of Smart Fit Girls is to empower middle school girls to support one another and themselves in their pursuit of strength, both in body and mind. We do this using an evidence based program that involves lessons designed to foster self-love and activities that show the girls what they can do when their bodies are strong. We envision a world where girls love all of who they are (inside and out) because we know that all girls are inherently strong, worthy and capable of greatness.

Description

We envision a world where all adolescent girls believe in themselves and feel empowered to lead healthy, active lifestyles.

Focusing on middle school-age girls, Smart Fit Girls is a 10-week after-school program or a 1-week summer program. The girls meet with volunteer coaches to lift weights and learn about other aspects of physical, mental and emotional health.

The curriculum has been intentionally developed and designed to teach adolescent girls how to love their bodies by embracing their own
strength. During our program, girls participate in exciting activities aimed at improving their self-esteem and are introduced to resistance training exercises in a fun group environment.
