Mom It Forward Partners With the Girl Scouts
You know that feeling when you just can’t wait for tomorrow? When you’re with friends, and you’re talking about all the fun things that could happen? We love that feeling! Don't you?
The campaign captures the fun of Girl Scouting with the theme “I can’t wait to” and girl-friendly grassroots promotions that will reach every community nationwide. With 3.2 million Girl Scouts and 112 Girl Scout councils across the country, parents, caregivers and volunteers are vital to the organization’s success.
Growing up, I was first a Brownie and then graduated into being a Girl Scout. My Mom was always the Troop Leader and provided us with so many experiences and opportunities. My friends and I loved going to meetings, as well as volunteering in our neighborhood. Plus, selling (and eating) the cookies was an added bonus to being part of the amazing organization.
What did the Girl Scouts teach me? Girl Scouting is all about building girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. From attending meetings to volunteering, going to Girl Scout camp to environmental projects—my friends and I were able to discover the fun, friends, and power of girls coming together.
Through a myriad of enriching experiences, such as extraordinary field trips, sports skill-building clinics, community service projects, cultural exchanges, and environmental stewardships, girls grow courageous and strong. Girl Scouting helps girls develop their full individual potential; relate to others with increasing understanding, skill, and respect; develop values to guide their actions and provide the foundation for sound decision-making; and contribute to the improvement of society through their abilities, leadership skills, and cooperation with others.
Founded in 1912, Girl Scouts of the USA is the preeminent leadership development organization for girls, with 3.2 million girl and adult members worldwide. Girl Scouts is the leading authority on girls' healthy development, and builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. The organization serves girls from every corner of the United States and its territories. Girl Scouts of the USA also serves American girls and their classmates attending American or international schools overseas in 90 countries.
