Over 200 kids from the Bellevue Boys & Girls Club chapter attend evening of fun sponsored by Intelius on March 20 at the South Bellevue Community Center for the neighborhood kick-off of the SMART Girls and GOOD Guys programs.

SMART Girls and GOOD Guys are tied to the group’s “Be Great” campaign. Both programs focus on building self-esteem and responsibility among kids and teenagers five to 16. The programs emphasize how health and positive choices are building blocks for success.

Intelius is a 5-year sponsor of the Boys & Girls Club of Bellevue. In addition to the company’s involvement with the recent SMART Girls and GOOD Guys event, Intelius sponsors the Teen Center at the main Boys & Girls site in Bellevue as well as several other youth-oriented events each year.
