Help Celebrate Girl Scouts 100th Anniversary and Their Leadership Role for All Girls
Remarkably in March 2012, the Girl Scouts of the United States of America (GSUSA) will celebrate its 100th anniversary. In celebration, GSUSA has declared 2012 “The Year of the Girl.” Founded by Juliette Gordon Low in 1912, Girl Scouts has become the preeminent organization for girls in the world, with 2.3 million girl members, 880,000 adult members, and an alumnae base of more than 50 million American women. For nearly a century, Girl Scouts has provided a myriad of leadership experiences that build “girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place,” and remains one of the leading voices in research on girl issues through the Girl Scout Research Institute.
We are asking for you to encourage your members of Congress to support GSUSA by co-sponsoring the Girl Scouts of Centennial Resolution today!
In celebration of 100 years of remarkable programming, research and advocacy, Girl Scouts has worked with Representatives Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) and Kay Granger (R-TX), and Senators Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) and Collins (R-ME) to introduce the Girl Scout Centennial Resolution in the House and Senate. The Resolution would:
Commend the Girl Scouts for its remarkable national leadership development program that teaches girls to discover themselves and their values, connect with others, and take action to improve their world.
Recognize the Girl Scouts as a driving force behind research on girl issues related to leadership, health, and STEM (science, engineering, technology and math).
Celebrate 100 years of Girl Scouts’ leadership and expertise as the voice for and of girls. Take Action today and send a message to your U.S. Representative and Senators asking them to co-sponsor this important resolution in honor of Girl Scouts of the USA!
We can all be the voice for girls!
