The FREE Event Will Host 100 Girls For a Day of Empowering Workshops and Mentoring Opportunities
HOUSTON, TX, August 14, 2015 – The Smahrt Girl Foundation (SGF), a local nonprofit organization focused on empowering teen girls, will host the “Start Smahrt” Teen Summit on Saturday, September 26, 2015 at the University of Houston – Downtown. As teen girls everywhere head back to school, SGF will offer guidance by hosting a day of workshops, mentoring and fun with topics and discussions on Self-Esteem, Social Media Do’s and Don’ts, Education & Career Planning, Studying Abroad, Teen Health & Fitness, Beauty, and other hot teen topics. The FREE “Start Smahrt” Teen Summit is sponsored by Smahrt Solutions, Inc. and the University of Houston-Downtown.
As part of the summit activities, SGF will also launch their Mentor-Mentee Matchmaking program by inviting women who are interested in mentoring a teen girl to attend a meet and greet reception. This will allow teens to select someone who is strongly aligned with their goals and interests.
“This event really speaks to the core of our program and why we exist,” said Pamela Ellis, Founder of SGF. “I am super excited about this summit, because this is our opportunity to really plant the seeds that will reap the harvest for our girls, our community and ultimately the world. During this summit our goal is to touch on what we believe are the keys to living a smart successful life: health and wellness, building strong relationships, managing your finances and goal setting.”
Parents and adult attendees are also able to participate with workshops on topics including improving communication, family relationships, and financial literacy. The “Start Smahrt” Teen Summit is for girls ages 12 – 19, and will be held on Saturday, September 26, 2015 from 8:00 am until 5:00 pm at The University of Houston Downtown, 1 Main St, Houston, TX 77002. Lunch will be provided along with tons of giveaways.
The mission of The Smahrt Girl Foundation is to provide girls living in rural and urban areas the opportunity to live the life of their dreams by offering positive support through character-building, life skills and leadership programs. Prior events include scholarship programs, Brunch and Ball Gowns and the Annual Prom Dress Drive Giveaway.
