The Roselle Park Girl Scouts will be having their annual round up on Thursday, October 15th from 6:30 p.m. till 7:30 p.m. at the Casano Community Center. This will be when girls can register to join and put into troops.
Started in 1912 in Savannah, Georgia by founder Juliette Gordon “Daisy” Low, the Girl Scouts empowers girls to help them develop their full individual potential and relate to others with increasing understanding, skill, and respect. Although known mostly for their world-famous cookies, the organization strives to develop values in girls to guide their actions and provide the foundation for sound decision-making as well as contribute to the improvement of society through their abilities, leadership skills, and cooperation with others. This is achieved through a wide variety of enriching experiences, such as field trips, skill-building sports clinics, community service projects, cultural exchanges, and environmental stewardships.
The Girl Scouts of America is 2.8 million strong, with 2,000,000 girls and 800,000 adults. Through its membership in the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) (link), Girl Scouts of the USA is part of a worldwide family of 10 million girls and adults in 146 countries. Noted alumna include Taylor Swift, Venus and Serena Williams, Barbara Walters, and virtually every female astronaut who has flown in space.
As the preeminent leadership development organization for girls with programs for girls from coast to coast and across the globe, Girl Scouts offers every girl a chance to do something amazing. In short, the Girl Scouts builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.
