August 2018: Thanks Julianne
When you read the letter to the editor seen in the image above, you
see what we call "the Girl Scout Difference" in action. Girl
the G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, L
eader)™ in every girl preparing her for a lifetime of leadership. A
girl who experiences her first night hike at camp may very well end up
accepting a mission on the International Space Station. Troop members
who lobby city council for a change in policy or law might hold a seat
in Congress one day. Girl Scouts is proven to help girls thrive in
five key ways: develop a strong sense of self; display positive
values; seek challenges and learn from setbacks; form and maintain
healthy relationships; and identify and solve problems in the
community. A Girl Scout troop creates a safe space where girls can try
new things, develop a range of skills, take on leadership roles, and
just be themselves. And yes, we have plenty of fun along the way. As
long as there are "parade announcers" who don't realize the
needed and relevant role Girl Scouts plays in the lives of girls,
there will be a Julianne ready and willing to set him straight. Her
letter went viral, touching countless readers who now know what a girl
can do. She and her supportive parents even appeared
on the Today Show to spread her message. Thanks, Julianne for
making the world a better place.
