Smart-Girl is a Colorado non-profit organization that inspires pre-teen and teen girls to make smart choices and become confident, capable and self-reliant young women.

“Smart-Girl offers girls the time of their lives…
at the right time in their lives.”

Four dynamic women founded Smart-Girl so future generations of girls would have the tools to successfully navigate the obstacles of adolescence and emerge confident and capable women. They are Alma Lantz, Debra McKenney, Becky Orr, and Kristine Shaw.  Karen Silverman is the Executive Director.


Afro Puffs and Ponytails is constantly searching for information about camps, clubs and organizations, and mentoring programs to provide as resources for parents and community organizers. It is our hopes that each resource provided will serve to build confidence, enhance self esteem, develop leadership skills, empower, uplift and educate our African American girls. We are not recommending these programs, but offering a starting point for you to conduct your own evaluation and research about whether a program is right for your child.
