Lexington, SC - Girl Scouts is making a difference in communities across the upstate and midlands. They are challenging girls to step up, innovate, and grow their leadership skills. And, it is happening!
For more than a month Girl Scouts of South Carolina-Mountains to Midlands, the council that encompasses Lexington County, has been bringing girls across the state, and many from other states, the Girl Scout Leadership Experience virtually.
Through Girl Scouts Connected and Girl Scouts at Home girls and families have access to daily programs to earn badges, participate in fun family activities, and hangout with old and new friends.
We have put together incredible virtual programming, and while our membership year usually begins in October, we recognize the value that these online programs have during this unprecedented time of isolation.
So we have put together a plan that offers daily virtual experiences and activities delivered to girls’ doorsteps.
I’ve included a flyer with more information and attached pictures that show some of our Girl Scouts participating in our virtual programs.
The Girl Scout Leadership Experience is a one-of-a-kind leadership development program, with proven results. It is based on time-tested methods and research-backed programming that help girls take the lead in their own lives and in the world.
Research shows that girls learn best in an all-girl, girl-led, and girl-friendly environment. Girl Scouts is a place where she’ll practice different skills, explore her potential, take on leadership positions, and even feel allowed to fail, dust herself off, get up, and try again.
The Girl Scouts will:
Help girls reach their full potential by:
Engage in healthy activities
Find her entrepreneurial spirit and enhance their financial literacy
Explore the great outdoors
Participate in hands-on science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) skill building
Connect with girls around the world
Take on meaningful community service projects
Take the lead ------ in her own life and in the world
As Girl Scouts, these young ladies know who they are, what they are made of, and where they will go next.
