Mankato Youth Place receives donation for SMART Girls Program

MANKATO, Minn. (KEYC) — The Women’s Giving Circle has given a generous donation to the SMART Girls Program at Mankato Youth Place.

The SMART Girls Program aims to help girls adopt and develop a healthy attitude and lifestyle as well as acquire and maintain a positive self-concept.

The group also aims to practice and encourage sound decision-making, develop those skills and mentor relationships.

“That funding will allow our staff to dedicate some time to serve our girls. We expect to serve 15-20 girls through the program and really healthy development," SMART Girls Program Director Erin Simmons said.
