Today’s Tips 2.14.22

Girl Scouts Celebrate Faith Materials 
Girl Scout Week is a time when we shout our Girl Scout pride from the rooftops! It’s also a time when many troops celebrate the connections between Girl Scouting and their faith, learn more about other faiths and thank faith partners for their support throughout the year. The Girl Scouts Celebrate Faith toolkit (which includes Girl Scout Sunday, which falls on March 6 this year) can be found on our website. Troops are welcome to use any of these materials in their celebrations. 

​Celebrate Black History Month
We invite you, as part of Black History Month, to explore the cultures, histories and traditions of the Black and African American communities in your own state and across the country through two patch programs. The Black History Month patch can be found here, and the “She’s My Friend” patch program from our sister council Girl Scouts Heart of the South can be found here

Looking for Delegates for the 2023 National Council Session
Starting in 1915 and every few years since then, delegates from every council across the nation and USA Girl Scouts Overseas have met to discuss, debate and vote on issues important to the Girl Scout Movement and elect national leaders for the next triennium. We can’t wait to gather again safely in person for our 56th National Council Session, which will take place in Orlando, Florida, July 18-20, 2023. Applications are now being accepted for those interested in being a GSCP2P delegate in Orlando. You can find the application here and the official delegate description here. Have other questions? Please e-mail us here.

Applications are being accepted through February 28. ​
