The Girl Scout Way: Take Action Weekend

Girl Scouts have been offering a helping hand to those in need and working together to improve their corner of the world for over 100 years. Our legacy of service goes all the way back to our founder, Juliette Gordon Low, who had a clear vision of what she wanted Girl Scouting to be and made sure that service to others was embedded in our mission. To honor the spirit of service that Juliette placed at the heart of our organization, we’re inviting troops across Western Ohio to join your sister Girl Scouts on October 9-11, 2015 in honoring Juliette’s legacy by completing a Take Action Project, while working on your Girl Scout Way badge (available for brownies and up).

Brownie Girl Scout Way BadgeThis is our second Girl Scout Way: Take Action Weekend and we’re so excited to hear about the amazing projects that girls across Western Ohio will participate in to make their corner of the world a better place. This is for all grade levels council-wide! Girls can work with their troop and/or service unit to plan a project in their community that addresses a community need. Don’t forget to identify other organizations and individuals who can help the girls accomplish their goals and then put their plan into action. When girls take the lead with the support of the community, there’s nothing they can’t accomplish! Don’t forget to register your project before you start. T-shirts will be available for purchase before the weekend, the order for the shirts must be received no later than Friday, September 18. Questions? Contact devonbeck@gswo.org! So what will you be doing October 9-11th? We’ll be making a difference in our community-come join us!
