Do you have a girl in your life who is a true go-getter? Does she take the lead in everything she does? Sign her up for Girl Scouts! As summer draws to a close and parents and caregivers begin preparing for back to school, Girl Scouts of Connecticut is inviting all girls K-12 to join the fun and Take the Lead like a G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, and Leader).
Picture this: A safe, no limits place where she can try new things, take on challenges, build community, and inspire others! That’s Girl Scouts; a place where “Can I?” quickly turns to, “I will!” Where your G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, and Leader) can transform her ideas into action, turn her questions into adventure, and grow her confidence through practice.
What’s behind our success? The Girl Scout Leadership Experience, a one-of-a-kind, proven leadership development program, pairs girls with strong, caring role models and mentors who prepare them to take the lead from age 5 to 18 and into adulthood. “At Girl Scouts, we are the organization creating—through our skill-building Girl Scout Leadership Experience—the female leadership pipeline and the go-getters, innovators, risk-takers, and leaders of tomorrow,” said Mary Barneby, CEO of Girl Scouts of Connecticut. “Through our fun, exciting, and challenging programs, Girl Scouts not only participate, but also take the lead in a range of activities—from kayaking, archery, and camping, to coding, robotics, and financial literacy training (and beyond)!”
While Girl Scouts of Connecticut is open to all girls K-12, anyone over the age of 18 can become a Girl Scout volunteer. Girls cannot experience Girl Scouting without volunteers, and each individual who volunteers will make a positive impact in a girl’s life. Girl Scout volunteers come in all shapes and sizes: men, women, young professionals, retirees, college students, alumnae, and more. You can be the role model she will always remember.
If you have an adventurous girl in mind who would love to explore the world through Girl Scouting, start the fun today!
