Volunteers, here is a new resource that we hope will help you partner with your girls to create and carry out a Take Action Project, whether as part of a Journey or a Bronze, Silver, or Gold Award.  As you know, we believe in giving girls the opportunity to take the lead in creating a project that is close to their hearts, using their creativity to find a lasting solution to a problem, and carrying out the steps to complete the project.  What does this process look like for our youngest girls?  How can we challenge our older girls?  How can we convert an idea for a temporary help to a lasting solution?  Check out this flyer for ideas!

Currently we are getting many calls for help with shoveling from individuals who are seniors or disabled and have limited income. We are running out of places to refer people, and were reaching out to ask for help from your Girl Scout volunteers.
