GIRL SCOUTS -REACHING-GIVING-MENTORING

It’s all about girls “. . . reaching out to help them learn, giving them the tools and opportunities they need to grow strong, and mentoring them as they develop into tomorrow’s confident, successful adults. In our 2002 reporting year alone, we reached out to serve 10,478 girls from a variety of backgrounds and cultures in Adams, Allen, DeKalb, Huntington, Steuben, and Wells counties. That’s a record for Limberlost Council, a record we’re proud to have set and a record we’re already striving to break.”

“But it’s not about setting and breaking records. It’s about giving girls the contemporary, accessible programs that provide the experiences they want and need. By talking with girls and listening to the national research that helps us understand them, we’re giving girls the programs and services that teach leadership skills, build self-esteem, and encourage them to test their skills in a safe environment. We’re also reaching out to give them opportunities to take part in science exploration, career education, sports involvement outdoor discovery, personal development, travel events, and community service projects.”

“It’s about guiding girls through connections with positive adult role models and giving adults the flexible mentoring interactions they want and need, too. During 2002, more than 2,475 adult women and men across Limberlost Council collaborated with girls and with each other to make these connections possible.”

“As Girl Scouts of Limberlost Council reaches out to unite girls with adult mentors and program opportunities, we are helping them develop the highest ideals of character, conduct, and patriotism. The result? Self-confident girls who will become tomorrow’s successful scientists, artists, mothers, doctors, engineers, and business professionals. And that’s the work we’re most proud of.” – Don Cross, President, Board of Directors and Sherri Weidman, Executive Director/CEO – Girl Scouts of America.
