  • Honor a Volunteer

    22 Jan 2015

    According to findings from the Girl Scout Research Institute, Girl Scouts are more likely to consider themselves leaders compared to other girls and boys: 64% of Girl Scouts consider themselves leaders compared to 44% of a national sample of girls and 52% of boys.

    This great success is largely due to dedicated volunteers—the cornerstone of Girl Scouts. Each year volunteers around the world give their time and diverse talents to deliver the mission and help to create leaders of tomorrow.

    Do you know someone who has gone above and beyond in their support of Girl Scouts? A parent who is always ready to lend a hand? A troop leader girls will always remember? Or, a community member who provides support?

    Why not honor those volunteers and community partners who make a difference in the lives of girls by nominating them for an adult award.

    The deadline for nominations is February 15, 2015. For more information contact the Overseas Committee Chair in your area.

  • Think It’s Too Late to Register? Think Again

    12 Jan 2015

    If you ask parents when to register their Girl Scout, many might reply with “in the fall during back- to-school.” Historically, fall has been “the time” to register, but the reality is: any time is the right time to register!

    Girl Scouts provides year-round programming so girls can jump in at any point during the year.  In fact, what better time than Girl Scout Week (March 8-14) to join the fun?  During Girl Scout Week, girls and volunteers mark days for: service to community and family, health and safety, art and culture, and Girl Scout birthday (Happy 103rd!).

    Girl Scouts all over USA Girl Scouts Overseas are happy to make new friends—because more Girl Scouts means more fun!
