We are currently planning the 6-week after-school Girl Scout Series—It’s Your Business, Run It!—and have a seasonal part time opening for a Girl Scouts in ACTION Coordinator. This position is responsible for quality delivery of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience by working directly with schools and volunteers to coordinate a 6-week after-school Girl Scout series culminating with a related Take Action event/project.  This person may also facilitate some of the sessions.  We will need a coordinator and volunteers in both the Alexandria and Willmar communities.  Training for this series begins mid-January.

If you or someone you know would be interested in volunteering your time and talent as a role model for girls, please contact Marge Hanson, Volunteer Specialist, at 320-403-2108 or mhanson@gslakesandpines.org.

In support of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, Lakes & Pines Girl Scout Shops are happy to offer adult volunteers the tools they need to guide girls in their leadership Journeys. Now through Dec. 31, 2012, all 18 Adult Guide/Journey Book Sets for all age-levels are 33% off. Regularly $15, on sale $10.

The adult guide for each Journey offers an introduction to the journey's theme and awards, grade-level-specific tips and suggestions, and a full set of sample session plans filled with ceremonies, activities, discussions, and reflections. Adult guides also provide detailed instructions, examples, supply lists, and discussion starters to bring the journey to life in partnership with girls.

Save $5 during this special limited time offer! Visit us or contact your Girl Scout shop in Waite Park and Duluth to place an order.

Please note: Hurricane Sandy has caused a delay in the processing and shipping of orders from Girl Scout Merchandise on the east coast. If you have recently placed a special order with Lakes & Pines shops, it may be arriving later than our normal two week turn-around. We remain well-stocked with most all of the Girl Scout basics - uniforms, emblems, awards, and books. Please call if you have questions about an order you placed recently.

If you and your fellow Girl Scout leaders would benefit from additional training on how to blend Journeys and the Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting into a more meaningful Leadership Experience, please contact me (320-403-2108 or mhanson@gslakesandpines.org)  to set up a learning session for your Service Unit.
