February 2019: More than cookies, crafts, and camping
When you say the word “Girl Scout” many people think of the three
C's – cookies, crafts and camping. Don’t get me wrong I love all three
of the C's—especially cookies “since 'tis the season” to buy delicious
Girl Scout Cookies, but our organization is so much more. Girl Scouts
is fueling the leadership and talent pipeline. We know from our
alum studies that girls who are Girl Scouts for at least three years
become awesome women. They are more likely to vote, more likely to go
to college and earn an advanced degree, more likely to be a volunteer
in their community and they earn about $10,000 more in salary than
their non-Girl Scout peers.
All of those badges and awards our girls earn, coupled with unique programs led by caring adults, turn out to have a real impact in filling this county’s talent pipeline with girls who break gender-based barriers, giving our Girl Scouts a path to success. Girl Scouts gives girls access to role models, bolsters their confidence and aspirations, and develops leaders. Whatever path our girls take, they have the skills to be a boss, to lead themselves and others, to make the best choices for their own happiness and definition of success. So buy a box of Girl Scout Cookies! The girl selling them to you might be making her first cold sales call, defining her first project budget, and may have just set her first goal to raise money for a project that will change lives. And I can guarantee she’s a pretty smart cookie.
