SMILE is a program designed to help children improve their self-esteem and build positive identities. SMILE mentors lead hour long lessons once a week through stories, games, and interactive discussions. SMILE operates through the Express programs at 7 elementary schools in the Spokane School District, as well as the Boys and Girls Club on Saturdays. The youth that participate in SMILE are in grades kindergarten through sixth grade.
This opportunity only requires a one semester commitment, but we highly encourage people to stay in the program longer!
