As soon as Kaila could join the Girl Scouts we immediately joined. As a mom I really liked the values and sense of community that the Girl Scouts worked to build. Kaila was so excited about the adventures with the Girl Scouts because she knows she can do anything she sets her mind to. That feeling starts with parents like myself who work every day to encourage and empower young girls. I like that the Girl Scouts is helping to support the values that I find to be most important. Friendship, community, service, respect, and entrepreneurship!
Girls can join the Girl Scouts at the age of 5 and you’ll be amazed at how quickly your little Girl Scout will grow over that year. If you’re a mom who wants to be involved like myself I took on the co-leader role and worked at planning activities and weekly learning objectives. Some of our favorites moments have been helping the community. With the help of cookie sales each year we decide on a community service project, Kaila got to help pick and plan a project that was near and dear to our hearts. We made fleece tag blankets and delivered them during the holidays to the local children’s hospital.
It’s that sense of community and giving that girls can really be a part of and it does empower our girls – that they can do anything! I can’t wait to join in again for another exciting year of Girl Scouts and I encourage you to join too!
When you just can’t wait for what you’ll do next, you can do anything!
Girl Scouts are always counting down to the next adventure. Maybe it’s artistic. Maybe it’s an experiment. Maybe it’s getting outside or helping the community. With Girl Scouts, you’ll make a bunch of new friends—and together you’ll have so much fun experiencing how exciting the world is and how awesome you are, over and over again. What is something your girl can’t wait to do? With the Girl Scouts girls are following their dreams and always looking forward to the next big adventure!
