Bridging youth empowerment and academic excellence, C.G. Smith programs provide academic assistance and behavioral and emotional supports that help youth overcome their behavioral and emotional challenges and empower them to become healthy, happy and academically successful.

Our programs focus on youth between the ages of 5 to 21 who live in Broward County and need extra supports that address behavioral and emotional challenges as well as provide academic assistance. Through academic instruction and therapeutic respite, aftercare and summer programming, C.G Smith’s programs address youth’s academic needs and behavioral and emotional challenges in order for them to lead happy productive lives.
