Girl Scouts Change the World
It’s almost International Day of the Girl, and nobody celebrates the world-changing power of girls quite like Girl Scouts!
We’re celebrating the day and girls around the globe with two webinars for Girl Scouts on Saturday, Oct. 10, where girls will virtually work together on the Global Action Award, which focuses this year on the United Nation’s Sustainable Development goal of gender equality. And don’t forget to snag the International Day of the Girl patch from our store!
Don’t miss the chance to party with, and learn from, the 2020 National Gold Award Girl Scouts, who don’t just change the world for the better—they change it for good!

We are hosting several virtual opportunities for our adult volunteers, including Virtual Troop Meeting Support meetings on Oct. 7 and 12, Mock Virtual Troop Meeting Webinars multiple days from Oct. 1-19, and Girl Scout leader chats every month!
We’re also hosting New Leader Networking sessions every month as well, and don’t miss out on our Adult Volunteer Enrichment series, another great way to network and relax!
