A Girl Scout recruitment meeting for girls in grades K-fifth will be held from 6 to 7 p.m. this evening, Thursday, August 29, at the Seminole County Elementary School Cafeteria.
The purpose of the Girl Scout interest meeting and ice cream social on Thursday, in addition to recruiting leaders and new troops for K-fifth grade girls in Seminole County, is designed to showcase the options, activities and help- each-other environment available to each young lady in the Girl Scout program.
Any middle/high school aged girls interested in joining Girls Scouts and Seminole County’s Troop 40310 can contact Nicole Touchton at [email protected]
New leaders interested in starting their own middle/high school level troop are also welcome to contact Tamara Williams, the Membership Manager for the Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia: 229.518.3899
Requirements to be a leader include a background check and the desire to dedicate some free time to enriching the lives of young future leaders. There is some basic training involved in starting a troop, as well as a small membership fee. Leaders can dedicate as little or as much time to scouting as their schedules allows. It is an incredibly rewarding experience for both Scout and leader.
The values of being a Girl Scout are endless, as shown here in this year’s plans for Girl Scouts in Seminole County’s Troop 40310. They will be working on their Silver Award project this year which is a pilot community garden for the students of the Friendship House of Jesus in Donalsonville. They will also work on earning Legacy Badges, learning new skills via educational workshops, completing community service projects, and growing as Girl Scout sisters through team-building camping and field trips.
The Girl Scout leadership experience is a one-of-a-kind leadership development program for girls, 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.
