Today’s Tips 3.13.23

Note from Our CEO

Dear Girl Scout Family,

Yesterday, on March 12, our organization celebrated another year of bringing the Girl Scout Leadership Experience to girls, another year of truly making a difference in the lives of so many. Who would have thought that Juliette Gordon Low’s first Girl Scout troop of 18 girls in 1912 would lead to a worldwide organization that helps girls and women become the leaders of tomorrow?

At Girl Scouts Carolinas Peaks to Piedmont (GSCP2P), we are proud to continue the work Juliette began over 100 years ago. We are currently over 10,600 members strong and continue to add more girls to our sisterhood every day, building on the generations we have already served and continuing the momentum of our mission into the future. From outdoor experiences to troop meetings to community partner programming, everything we offer girls gives them opportunities to expand their interests, builds skills for a lifetime and increase their ability to face any challenge head on.

We know the importance of having this all-girl environment for today’s girls. Girl Scouts provides a safe place where they can learn how to navigate the world with courage and confidence, believe in themselves and others and be able to try new things in a safe setting- where success and failure are all done with the support of caring adults and forever friends. We know what we do, and I want the rest of our community to know that too!

As we celebrate Girl Scout Week, I hope you will take it as an opportunity to share your Girl Scout pride with others! It’s a great time to bring awareness to our organization and reach out to those who might want to join us- a friend’s daughter, a neighbor, a co-worker. With your commitment to making this world a better place for all girls and our dedication to providing programming and resources that lead to positive lifelong values, friendships and skills, we can and will make a difference. 

Have a great week!

Jennifer Wilcox

It’s Girl Scout Week!

We are currently accepting applications for adult volunteer advisors.GAB advisors will work with staff members during the selection process and will also provide support and guidance to the GAB members throughout the year. They will oversee this amazing group of young ladies and play an important role by engaging and mentoring older Girl Scouts to be actively involved in the planning and implementation of council and service unit activities and events. The GAB advisor provides the opportunity for Girl Scout Cadettes, Seniors and Ambassadors to confirm that council and service unit activities and events provide, support and promote the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. To apply to be a GAB Advisor, please click here!
