SMART Girls Tackle Issue of Drug Addiction

Our SMART Girls completed a 4-four week drug awareness program that focused on the risk and long term effects of drug addiction among children and teens. The SMART Girls researched this topic ahead of time and then presented their learnings during peer to peer teaching and discussions. The workshop wrapped up with the girls performing a skit for fellow members and parents entitled “Drug Abuse Equals Trouble,” followed by a Q&A session. SMART Girls is a health, fitness and education program that uses interactive role playing and mentoring to encourage girls—ages 8 to 18—to make healthy life choices
