Girl Scouts provides opportunities for adults to build courageous girl leaders of today and tomorrow

RALEIGH, N.C. – What do 2/3 of the women in Congress, a Supreme Court Justice, and almost every female astronaut have in common? They were all Girl Scouts. With over a century of experience in building girls of courage, confidence, and character, Girl Scouts continues to be the preeminent leadership development program for girls in grades kindergarten through twelve.  At Girl Scouts, we believe that when girls succeed, so does society. For over a century, the organization has focused on empowering and inspiring girls to become bold and courageous leaders of today and tomorrow. However, the Girl Scout experience is largely made possible thanks to the amazing army of Girl Scout volunteers, 9,000 strong in central and eastern North Carolina. Girl Scout volunteers lead troops of girls, provide subject matter expertise in a variety of fields – including STEM, financial literacy, the outdoors, and more – and cheer girls on as they make the world a better place through both service and talent.
 “Without the constant support of my troop leaders and the volunteers at Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines I wouldn’t have been as successful trying to achieve my goals,” said a local Girl Scout from New Hanover County. “My leaders were a great support system and helped me build my self-confidence, making me feel like I could change the world.”Serving over 26,000 girls, Girls Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines is looking to expand its reach and ensure every girl has the chance to lead. However, we need volunteers in New Hanover County to help us provide more life changing opportunities. To help encourage even more adults to raise their hand to become champions of girls, through the end of the year, when a new volunteer signs up to co-lead a Girl Scout Daisy, Brownie, Junior troop, there are even more rewards in store. As a part of the volunteer referral program, new troop leader volunteers will receive a troop start-up resource pack full of helpful materials to support their girls on their path to leadership. Girl Scout volunteers help implement the Girl Scout Leadership Experience – a collection of activities and experiences girls have while they earn badges, sell cookies, go on exciting trips, explore the outdoors at one of four exciting camps, and do Take Action projects that make the world a better place. There’s no better feeling than watching a girl conquer her challenges, venture beyond her comfort zone, and realize how awesome it is to be a girl and a Girl Scout.
