Last week was an exciting week for Girl Scouts of Connecticut! We kicked off the week on Girl Scout Sunday with the ribbon-cutting of our museum, featuring the rich history of Girl Scouting in Connecticut. We are so grateful to our founding donors in making our dream a reality. You can read all about our ribbon-cutting at the tab on the left.
Our Girl Scout Week from March 10-16 was one filled with great activities for all girls at each one of our Service Centers. We welcomed current Girl Scouts and new friends, sharing with them the many opportunities that Girl Scouting has to offer.
On Tuesday, March 12, we celebrated our 101st Anniversary. We celebrated 101 years of building girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. Our 101st birthday was also a reminder of how far we have come in advancing Juliette Gordon Low’s mission. From 12 girls in Savannah, Georgia, to 3.2 million girl and adult members nationwide – we have come a long way!
At Girl Scouts of Connecticut, we strive to offer the traditional activities that everyone knows, like our Cookie Program, summer camp opportunities, and arts & crafts, but we are also addressing the needs of girls today. We offer anti-bullying workshops and conferences through our Girlz R.U.L.E.® signature programming. We make sure that girls experience the many opportunities that Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) have to offer, so that they’re ready to join these rapidly growing fields in the future. We build girls’ self-esteem while providing them with the tools to make healthy life choices through our Live Healthy, Lead Healthy signature initiative. At the very core of all of this programming is our Girl Scout Leadership Experience: helping a girl discover herself and her values, connect with others to build healthy relationships, and take action to make the world a better place.
We are proud to build the next generation of leaders in your communities, towns, the state, or the nation. We will continue to inspire our girls and build up their confidence in their leadership abilities. Together, we can get her there, with your help!
Yours in Girl Scouting,
CEO, Girl Scouts of Connecticut
