SMART Girls is a small-group health, fitness, prevention/education and self-esteem enhancement program designed to meet the developmental needs of girls ages 8 through 12 and 13 through 17. Through dynamic sessions, highly participatory activities, field trips and mentoring opportunities with adult women, Club girls explore their own and societal attitudes and values as they build skills for eating properly, staying physically fit, getting good health care and developing positive relationships with peers and adults. Local SMART Girls meet every Monday at 4 p.m. in the Club. For more information, please contact teen manager Jamie Wenzlow at 546-4324 or jwenzlow@bgcnlt.org.

Jamie Wenzlow, Teen Manager writes, Jairo attends the Club almost daily. He is always respectful and is there to lend a helping hand if you need one especially if it has to do with technology. Whenever I have a problem with a computer or the sound system, I go to him first. He also participates in many programs and helps out with our Kinder Club. He is a joy to be around and can make anyone smile around him.Congratulations and thank you Jairo!
