Cool Girls was founded by Dawn Smith in 1989 in response to the desperate plight of young girls living in the East Lake Meadows housing community. At that time, East Lake Meadows was known as one of Atlanta’s most violent public housing projects.


Today, Cool Girls serves over 350 girls through our partnerships with 8 Title 1 schools in DeKalb and Fulton Counties. Cool Girls provides motivation, encouragement, and reinforcement to help girls make smart choices that deter risky behaviors while giving guidance for positive transformation. Over a 27 year history, over 6,000 girls have come through their doors. Cool Girls develops strong bonds with girls, and their parents, giving support as early as seven years old throughout womanhood.
