Being a sister to every Girl Scout is not only part of the Girl Scout Law, but it’s a way of life.
Girl Scouts and Girl Guides across the globe celebrated World Thinking Day on February 22! Since 1926, Girl Scouts have gathered to support girls as they travel internationally, connect with sister scouts and take action globally.
This year, the theme for World Thinking Day was “Connect.” Girls everywhere made the world a better place by connecting with themselves, their friends and family, and their community.
Take a look at all the different ways you can #connect all year round:
Invite a friend: Bring a friend to your next Girl Scout troop meeting or fun family outing. This is a great way to get to know someone outside of school and introduce them to something that’s important to you.
Donate to a good cause: Support international travel for Sister Girl Scouts by donating to the Juliette Low World Friendship Fund. These once-in-a-lifetime experiences help girls explore the world, learn about different cultures and build their confidence.
Give back to your community: Whether it’s volunteering at the local animal shelter or collecting canned goods for your neighborhood food pantry, there are a ton of ways to make a difference right where you live. Want to take your service beyond World Thinking Day? Join our council as we commemorate the impactful work of all who have earned Girl Scouting’s highest awards with our service initiative, #100DaysofGold!
Learn more about the world around you: Join your Sister Girl Scouts for a fun-filled afternoon at the Friendship Center in Country Club Hills, IL. This celebration of sisterhood includes hands-on activities about WAGGGS (World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts) international customs, cultures, friendships and Girl Guiding. Sessions include Chinese ink printing, a martial arts workshop, Bollywood dance workshop and more! Register here.
