March Celebrates National Women’s History Month

During the month of March, we celebrate the strong women leaders who have been innovative risk-takers in our Women's History Monthhistory, forging ahead to make a difference in how we do things in our world today.

The Girl Scout history is also filled with those women who decided to take a stand and push girls and women to new limits. One such women is one of our very own, Mary Ann Scarlette of Greensboro, whose dedication to Girl Scouting, spanning  over 70 years of involvement with the organization, helped start the Campus Girl Scouts in her area in 1979.

Teen Girl Scouts encouraged to apply for Girl Scout Leadership Institute

The Girl Scout Leadership Institute (GSLI) is a triennial conference that presents girls 14 and older with three days of leadership skill-building activities. Each GSLI is unique, and the 2014 GSLI is no exception. Girls who are 14 or older at the time of GSLI (by October 16, 2014) are eligible to attend the GSLI. The 2014 conference will take place in Salt Lake City, Utah. 

This GSLI will focus on big issues about which girls across the country and around the globe are passionate. Girls will get the latest information on their chosen issues from experts in the field, work together on solutions, learn techniques for innovation, advocacy, and planning, and return home ready to make a specific impact in their communities and councils. The GSLI experience will give each girl the opportunity to make new friends, develop important skills, learn about new planning processes, and take advantage of a support system that will be there to meet her needs—all delivered in a fun, engaging way. Each girl will also create action plans that will provide her and her council with a significant and lasting return on investment. Learn more and submit your application.
