As we embrace operating in a new normal in the shadows of a global pandemic, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Bloomington remains steadfast fulfilling our mission of empowering all young people – especially those who need us most.
We forge ahead to take on the challenges of today so that our kids have the opportunities they deserve tomorrow.
This is not the time for our community’s youth to fall behind.
An immensely beneficial and world-class program that directly impacts Club females, SMART Girls is a health, fitness, prevention/education and self-enhancement program for young women ages 8-17.
SMART Girls helps young women reach their full potential. Through dynamic sessions, group activities, field trips and mentoring opportunities with adult women, Club girls enjoy life-changing opportunities to build skills for eating right, staying physically fit, getting good health care, and developing positive relationships.
Other topics addressed through the SMART Girls programming with older girls include how the media influences attitudes about females, date rape and sexual harassment, sexually transmitted diseases, sexual myths and truths, getting regular gynecological care and the physical and emotional changes girls experience in their lifetime.
