Letter From the President & CEO

Dear Girl Scout Family,

Leadership experiences are what makes Girl Scouts unique. From her first day as a Girl Scout Daisy, she begins the journey in an all-girl environment making decisions and working as a team. As she progresses, our program taps into her natural curiosity and helps her fine tune her leadership skills and grow in confidence. One day she will change the world!

This year we launched, Girls the World Needs, a social media campaign to bring attention to our highest achievement, the Girl Scout Gold Award. It’s about time society recognizes the significance of the Gold Award and the girls who’ve dedicated years to accomplish projects that make their community and our world a better place. Girls the World Needs validates the contributions Gold Award Girl Scouts make to society. Last year, 225 Girl Scouts earned the Gold Award, the highest number in a decade. There were a variety of projects, from building a vegetable garden in a food desert, to creating a website to encourage voter registration and workshops to encourage younger girls to explore STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). You know the importance of building the next generation of leaders, and for many girls that leadership foundation begins at   
Girl Scouts.

There is a lot to brag about when it comes to Girl Scouts.  We think all our girls are girls the world needs, and that Girl Scouts is the place to prepare them for a lifetime of leadership. Because in a safe space, Girl Scouts have access to powerful mentors, are able to try new things, take risks and explore career paths. We remain steadfast in delivering quality programs to expose girls to STEM, entrepreneurship, outdoors and life skills. Our annual report reflects some of our many accomplishments in 2019.

Thank you for your continued support. 

Sincerely,
