Do you know about Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls at the Party? If you have teen or tween girls or you are a teen or tween girl, you will love this website and the episodes connected to it. Their motto is “we change the world by being ourselves,” and they aim to help young girls cultivate their authentic selves.

I love the episodes. In Smart Girls at the Party episodes, Amy Poehler interviews accomplished women about how they’re changing the world by using their unique talents. In Ask Amy episodes, Amy shares her thoughts in response to questions from girls like you. And there are several other different shows to explore, including a Boys Minute!

I love that Smart Girls promotes finding your own unique, individuality and celebrating that. It’s not about being like someone else, but about learning who you are and becoming the best you. Go visit Smart Girls at the Party right now, trust me, you’ll be happy that you did! It’s a positive site that promotes growth, learning, and healthy development of your most important asset: yourself! Check it out and let me know what you think.

  1. Sounds like a great idea and Amy if you fancy interviewing me as someone who set up a business working with children and was told no it would never work please let me know.

  2. Thanks for sharing this post! Because of you I’ve been inspired by “Smart Girls at the Party”. I always wanted to start something a la “smart girls, smart women”. Brilliant!
