In one of my recent posts, #Bring Back Our Girls, I referred to a site called, “Smart Girls at the Party.” This site is part of a movement whose “aim is to help young women and the young at heart with the process of cultivating their authentic selves.” One of the members of the team spearheading this cause is Amy Poehler – yes that Amy Poehler.
There are all sorts of resources on this site that encourage the empowerment of young women. You can find inspirational videos, downloadables, interviews with notable women, and even a collection of Pinterest Boards (my favorite board is “They Changed the World“).
The site isn’t just for girls. The other day I showed one of the “Ask Amy” videos on “Courage” to my students as I felt that it really tied in with a discussion we were having.
Smart Girls offers contests, and is even hosting a summer camp in Austin, TX this year for girls ages 14-18.
If you have a moment, explore Smart Girls at the Party. It’s a great site for bringing together anyone who is interested in making the world a better place.
