More Than Cookies – Local Girl Leadership Program Looking For Members
WERE YOU A SCOUT?
Were you a girl scout or boy scout as a kid? I started as a Brownie back when I was in first grade, and then I believe I was in Girl Scouts for a few years. I remember going to day camps, sharing treats, making things; meeting lots of other girls, and really learning a lot about the world around me. It was exciting, at times a little scary, and eye-opening.
I have met adults that have been in Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts throughout the years, that have really found it to be a great experience as well. Many of those people went on to become leaders, managers, and team players; all of which are skills that both clubs promote.
MY EXPERIENCE AS A GIRLSCOUT
I received a flyer in the mail the other day inviting me to become a Girl Scout! It brought me back to my time as a child, and I thought I would share my experience with you.
I don't know about you, but as a kid, I really was quite shy when it came to meeting people I didn't know. I grew up on a farm, and I really was very comfortable with that life, but getting out and meeting people outside my family was a different experience. Being a Scout really helps create the skills you need to become more socially active.
KNOW WHO YOU REALLY ARE- BUILD YOUR CHILD'S SELF CONFIDENCE
Being a Girl Scout is all about being your TRUE self! Try new things, and learn how to cheer on other girls around you. It's a great way to create and build lasting friendships and learn important social skills in today's ever-changing world. Girl Scouts learn how to be confident, and learn the importance of working together to get things accomplished in the world we live in...and they do it, all while having fun.
