Today, as we observe International Day of the Girl, I am proud to see girls stepping up as today’s leaders. At Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana, our local Girl Scouts are #changemakers and work with their Girl Scout sisters, family, friends, and communities to BE THE CHANGE THEY WANT TO SEE.
Earning their Bronze, Silver and the highest award, the Gold Award, Girl Scouts learn the importance of service by identifying issues and taking action. Not only do they make the world better, the girls learn the importance of purpose that ignites their souls. They are the GIRLS THE WORLD NEEDS.
As we celebrate this day, I challenge you to match the efforts of the powerful young women in the video and read more on our council blog about these powerhouse Gold Award recipients. To change our society for the better, it will take the efforts of ALL GENERATIONS and Girl Scouts is leading the way!
Your ACTION SPEAKS LOUDER when you join the Girl Scout movement. Mentor a girl as a volunteer, or invest in her future by donating. Become a champion for girls by sharing that ALL GIRLS deserve the chance to realize their true potential. Join us and show these young women that they are not alone in their quest for better.
