It’s time to get ready for back to school…and for another action-packed Girl Scout year! Through Girl Scouts, girls are able to try new things, explore the outdoors, make lifelong friends, and challenge themselves in a safe, supportive environment, all while having fun! We invite all girls K-12 to join and create memories to last a lifetime.
We can’t forget that none of this would be possible without our volunteers. Our volunteers are truly the backbone to our mission, and with their help, girls are able to build courage, confidence, and character, and use the skills they learn to make the world a better place for all.
Volunteers also reap benefits from Girl Scouting; a 2016 data report from the Girl Scout Research Institute finds that volunteers stay in Girl Scouting because they enjoy helping girls grow and reach their full potential. Volunteers help make a difference in their community; they build leadership skills and form lifelong friendships with other volunteers. It’s truly a remarkable experience for all.
We heard you! We’re excited to return to our live Kick Off events this year—and one is today! Come join us this evening at West Side Middle School in Waterbury from 6:00-8:00 p.m. or this Saturday, August 27, at South Congregational Church in East Hartford from 11:00 a.m.—1:00 p.m. For more information visit gsofct.org.
There are many good reasons to take time from your busy schedule to attend Kick Off:
1. Get your own copy of the brand new Program Resource Guide filled with special events and activities for you and your girls this year. This will give you the chance to work with your girls to plan a fun-filled Girl Scout year.
2. Meet the staff and other volunteers to find out more specific information about how to access all the great events and activities available.
3. Find out what is new this year! There are lots of surprises and wonderful new ways to deliver the best Girl Scout experience to our girls.
4. Express your ideas and questions directly to our staff…make your voice heard!
We hope to see you there, and have a fabulous Girl Scout year!
Yours in Girl Scouting,
