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.
February 22 marked World Thinking Day and girls from across the council participated in activities and events centered around global themes. The theme for Thinking Day 2014 was girls worldwide say “education opens doors for all girls and boys.”
Thinking Day was established in 1926 to honor Lord Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of Scouting, and Lady Olave Baden-Powell, the World Chief Guide of the Girl Guide/Girl Scout Movement. Along with exploring different cultures and traditions, it is also a day where Girl Scouts honor their sister Girl Guides and Girl Scouts in other countries.
GSCP2P, along with The Center for Creative Leadership, hosted a viewing of Girl Rising, a groundbreaking film about the strength of the human spirit and the power of education to transform societies, as part of their Thinking Day activities. Others troops participated in local events. To see photos of how our troops celebrated, click here.
Girl Scouts Carolinas Peaks to Piedmont has a collection of over 100 Girl Scout uniforms that are available to Girl Scout troops and groups to check out and use for fashion shows, special events or displays.

To reserve uniforms, troops can contact Amanda Coltrane two weeks prior to when the uniforms are needed. Troops are able to request certain time periods, levels and sizes. Troops are able to loan the uniforms for two days, but exceptions can be made if the event is over the weekend.
