SMART Girls (Skills Mastery & Resistance Training)

SMART Girls is an outgrowth of the National Boys and Girls Clubs SMART Moves program. It is a health, fitness, prevention/ education and self-esteem enhancement program for girls ages 10-15yrs. The program is designed to encourage healthy attitudes and lifestyles that will enable early adolescent girls to develop to their full potential. Case medical students have been spearheading this program at a club that is located in Cleveland Metropolitan Housing Authority for the past two years.
