Investors like the Nord Family Foundation are making more happen!
MACEDONIA, OH—While Girl Scouts has been faced Movement-wide with difficult challenges regarding volunteer and girl member recruitment, Girl Scouts of North East Ohio (GSNEO) is proud to report that we are experiencing a membership incline in the French Creek community (Sheffield Lake, Sheffield Village, and Sheffield Township), thanks to the work of volunteers, girls and a $21,518 grant awarded by the Nord Family Foundation.
The goal of Volunteer Development Initiative was to educate and empower volunteers to lead girls through the Girl Scout Leadership Experience (GSLE). The GSLE -- the framework for defining what girls do in Girl Scouting, how they do it, and who will benefit that was borne out of years of research and development—engages girls in three key activities: discovering who they are and what they value; connecting with others; and taking action to make the world a better place.
“Our council continues to work to connect Girl Scouts to the fast-paced modern world, ensuring we deliver a unique leadership experience that is consistent with the needs of today’s girls while teaching the values and ideals our Movement has always upheld,” said GSNEO Chief Executive Officer Jane Christyson.
Here are the results of the Volunteer Development Initiative that began in March of 2014:...
