Girl Scouts is a Family Affair

This is a sponsored post

           

 Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana serves more than 12,000 girls throughout the western half of Kentucky and Southern Indiana. The critical link in securing their future is you. Girl Scouts is a volunteer delivered program. We can only fulfill our mission if people like you are involved as leaders, role models and financial supporters. I invite you to be a part of our girls’ stories. One of the greatest opportunities in our country today is the untapped talent among the girls in our communities. Girl Scouts has a proven track record of influencing the lives of many successful women. In fact, eight out of 10 Girl Scout alumnae attribute their personal and professional success to Girl Scouting.

So, why not make the Girl Scout experience a family affair? At Girl Scouts, girls and their families have the potential to enjoy more than they ever thought possible! Whether it is attending camp, going on field trips, or giving back to the community, it’s all possible at Girl Scouts! The Kentucky Science Center facilitates our on-site MakerPlace in Louisville, and the program is based on the popular Maker Movement popping up in communities across the country. The MakerPlace brings science, technology, engineering and mathematics to life through designing, building, tinkering and inventing using ordinary, everyday items, gizmos, and gadgets. Girl Scouts offers fun adventure and outdoor opportunities for family camps at one of our seven beautiful camp properties in Kentucky and Indiana.

Girl Scouts of the USA is the largest organization for girls in the world. Our mission is to build girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place. For more than 100 years, we have opened doors of opportunity to all girls. No other organization provides more quality opportunities for girls to learn and lead than Girl Scouts. Three key experiences comprise the foundation of our formula for leadership development: we help girls discover themselves, connect with others and take action to create positive change in their communities. We provide unmatched opportunities to develop career skills in fields that have gaps in female talent, such as science, technology, finance and the environment.

How can you help?

Whether you engage individually or engage your family, there are many ways that girls need you to share your time, talents and resources.

  • You can serve as a volunteer working directly with girls as leaders, program facilitators, mentors, role models or speakers. You can help in areas of program strategy and planning, aligning the expertise of your organization with related Girl Scout programs, such as technology, health and wellness and the environment.
  • Opportunities also exist to support Girl Scouts financially as an individual or corporate donor, event or program sponsor, or a partner in funding strategic initiatives.

Consider the possibilities when we invest in our future — when we invest in our girls. The opportunities are limitless. Together, we grow leaders and we change lives. For more information, go to www.gskentuckiana.org.
