Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place.
Today’s effective leaders stress collaboration, inclusion, and a commitment to improving the world around them. Girls themselves tell us that a leader is defined not only by the qualities and skills she hones but also by how she uses those skills and qualities to make a difference in the world—to achieve transformational change!
Your investment brings STEM education, healthy living initiatives, and bullying prevention programs to girls in your community. You invest in girls like Briana. Briana recently earned her Girl Scout Gold Award with her project to lessen animal hunger in her community. To do so, Briana connected with the her local Humane Society and her school Beta Club, organized a semi-annual food drive, and raised awareness of animal hunger through public speaking events.
Of her experience Briana said, “I think that overall, my Girl Scouting experience has helped to boost my confidence and gave me the courage to lead this project, speak in front of groups of people, and ask for donations. I felt a huge sense of responsibility trying to meet my goals and be successful.”
Savannah, a Girl Scout Ambassador also comments on her Girl Scout experience, "I feel truly blessed to have been a part of Girl Scouts for 13 years now and I will be forever thankful for all I have learned through Girl Scouts. I wouldn't be the person I am today if it were not for this program. I hope to see more girls involved, learning the lessons that will change their lives, and make them into amazing young women of courage, confidence, and character.”
Girl Scouts of Kentucky’s Wilderness Road serves 10,000 girls in kindergarten through high school and 3,012 adults in 66 counties in Kentucky. Girl Scouting is a nonformal, experiential, and cooperative education program that promotes girls’ personal growth and leadership development. Our Girl Scouts Pathways offer flexible participation options, including troops, community scholarship programs, events and camp. Our focus areas include financial literacy, STEM, healthy living, and bullying prevention.
Girls may learn about energy by building a circuit or a wind-propelled car to race in the Windy 500. To learn about forensics, girls extract DNA from a banana and analyze fingerprints and body language. Girls learn how to design, build and program a LEGO robot and learn how to use a GPS unit to find pre-determined coordinates to lead them to a treasure (geocaching).
BFF (Be a Friend First) is an award-winning Girl Scout bullying-prevention initiative for middle school girls. Girls talk about issues like peer pressure, stereotyping, gossip and cliques.
