Celebrate National Girl Scout Week

Sun, Mar 11th 2018 09:00 am
National Girl Scout Week is March 11-17. It is a time to celebrate the power of what it means to be a G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader) who changes the world!
At 106 years strong, Girl Scouts continues to offer the pre-eminent all-girl, girl-led leadership development experience for girls in the world.
Girl Scouts of Western New York invites the entire WNY community to celebrate this special week in their own way.
During Girl Scout Week each day has a theme:
Sunday, March 11 - Celebrate as the week begins or concludes with Girl Scout Sunday, Girl Scout Sabbath, Girl Scout Jum'ah, or Girl Scout Shabbat as girls have an opportunity to attend their place of worship and be recognized as a Girl Scout. Girls will wear their Girl Scout uniform to their place of worship during this time. Girls can also reconnect with the Girl Scout Promise and Law. Learn more about Girl Scout history and our founder, Juliette Gordon Low.
Monday, March 12 - Celebrate Girl Scouts' 106th Birthday and be a go-getter and take action! Girls might launch a community service project or work toward a Girl Scout award.
Tuesday, March 13 - Be an innovator and explore science, technology, engineering, and/or math (STEM)! Girls can create a fun project through Made with Code, meeting challenges head on and exploring new solutions.
Wednesday, March 14 - Be a smart risk-taker and step out of your comfort zone! Girls can get outside to explore and take action to protect the environment, try a new outdoor activity with family or friends and sign up for Girl Scout summer camp or plan a different adventure. It could take place close to home, or around the world!
Thursday, March 15 - Be a leader and show people you care! Girls can commit "random acts of kindness" all day long, be a good friend, volunteer, or donate to charity.
Friday, March 16 - Get involved civically! Girls can connect with their local political or school officials and leaders. They can also, learn about Girl Scouts' legislative agenda and work toward earning their Global Action award.
Saturday, March 17 - Observe Girl Scout Sabbath: the perfect time to honor one's faith. Attend a religious service. Girls can think about earning their My Promise, My Faith pin and can also learn more about faiths different from their own.
Girls can celebrate National Girl Scout Week in many ways. Girls and volunteers will also share photos on social media, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, about how they are celebrating using the hashtag #GirlScoutWeek.
