What is the “Get Smart Profile?”
The Get Smart Profile is a set of ideals or guiding principles that inform all of our programs and services. Through careful evaluation, observation, experience, and paying attention to the latest trends and research, members of our team have identified important areas for young women to focus us. We at Get Smart firmly believe that when young women choose to look at and live life from the Get Smart profile that are wiring themselves for happiness, success, and a healthy sense of self. We’ve articulated the profile for teens as well as young adult women
