Celebrate Month of the Military Child with USAGSO!

March 01, 2023

Month of the Military Child is a time when we recognize our military children and their resiliency as they experience ongoing transitions and deployments. Military kids serve too, and we are so proud of our military Girl Scouts overseas! 

In honor of our military Girl Scouts, USAGSO is offering a full month of FREE programs and special opportunities. Here’s what’s in store!

Taste the World — Celebrate Month of the Military Child, Making MREs Delicious, April 1
During this session, Staff Sargent Ricardo Cabrera will introduce us to meals ready to eat (MREs). A MRE is a self-contained, individual field ration in lightweight packaging provided by the United States Department of Defense for its service members for use when other food is not available. While MREs aren’t known to be a gourmet option, they can actually be quiet delicious with the right mix of ingredients and preparation. Staff Sargent Cabrera will show us how!

Military Career Exploration, April 15
Join us as we meet women in the military and learn more about their careers in service to our country! In this panel conversation, Girl Scouts will learn about some of the most accomplished women in the military, both the hardships and advantages of being a woman in the military, what kinds of jobs women can do in today’s military, and what it’s like to serve our country.

College and Career Preparedness with Embry Riddle, April 22
Join USA Girl Scouts Overseas and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University as we take a peek at life after high school! Whether you’re thinking of heading off to college, jumping right into the workforce, or perhaps even taking a gap year, this program will give you the tools you need to be successful in your future endeavours.

Women in Space!, April 29
Join USA Girl Scouts Overseas and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University as we meet significant female role models and learn about their journey into STEM careers! We’ll explore what it’s like working at NASA, from the Apollo Mission to the Artemis Mission, returning to the Moon in 2024.
