Standing Strong with Girl Scouts

Standing Strong with Girl Scouts

To our unstoppable Girl Scout Family,

Thank you for believing in the power of G.I.R.L. Without your support and dedication, there wouldn’t be millions of women and girls standing strong and making the world a better place. There’s no contest. Girl Scouts is the best leadership program for girls. Our program is time-tested, research-backed, and our all-girl environment creates a space, unlike any other, where girls can feel confident to be themselves and develop new skills.

Recently, Boy Scouts has developed a new agenda to ‘let’ girls in to assist with their declining membership. Here at Girl Scouts of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois we proudly own the ‘Girl’ in Girl Scouts and we will continue to put girls at the front and center of our program. From the wilderness to the boardroom, Girl Scouts helps girls empower themselves with essential skills to take on the world.

Now more than ever, we have a unique opportunity to elevate the importance and value of Girl Scouts. From conversations with family and friends to enhancing visibility of our program this summer, let’s share with everyone that we are proud to be Girl Scouts.

We are asking you to support our program! Let your family and friends know the amazing accomplishments your Girl Scout has made in the program. Share our new PSA on social media. Find opportunities for your troop to get out in the community and be seen as making the world a better place. Whatever ways in which you can promote the strength of our program, we appreciate your dedication to building girls of courage, confidence, and character.

Yours in Scouting,
