Girl Scouts

Now Is The Time To Register For Girl Scouts  

Hill City Girl Scouts invite new girls and volunteers to join the fun 

 As families are thinking about their children returning to school, the Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland are inviting K-12 girls to join the fun and register for Girl Scouts, where they can make a difference in their community as they develop leadership skills, explore the outdoors, and create lasting friendships. Girl Scouts is not only an exciting way to engage girls year-round, it’s a place where girls truly thrive. 

The Girl Scout mission is building girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place, and at Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland, girls are developing those key qualities as they discover their strengths, passions, and talents. Whether it’s a first camping trip with her best friends, completing a service project in her hometown, or even designing a robot with Robo Troop, members of Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland discover what makes them special, and they’re encouraged to take the lead. Troops are forming now across Kansas, including in Hill City, and all K-12 girls who sign up for Girl Scouts on kansasgirlscouts.org by Sept. 1 will be entered into a drawing to win tickets to Taylor Swift’s concert Sept. 21 in Kansas City. Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland is also seeking volunteers over the age of 18 who want to make a difference in the life of a girl. It’s easy to join; go to kansasgirlscouts.org, email info@gskh.org, or call 888-686-MINT (6468). “I am excited about our upcoming Girl Scout year, because we have fun and rewarding experiences for every girl,” said Liz Workman, CEO of Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland. “In addition to the activities girls choose and the topics they pursue in their troops, we have a rich menu of activities across the council that includes everything from nature walks, photography, painting and archery to laser tag, dance, the science of weather, and even cupcake wars. Girls will find their ‘wow’ as they connect with other girls, and they’ll take action for themselves, our communities, and beyond to make the world a better place!” Girl Scouts is the largest girl-led organization in the world, and it is a significant contributor to its members’ success in and enjoyment in life. National studies from the Girl Scout Research Institute (GSRI) show that at least 75 percent of girls who are part of a girl-led program and experience the fun of “learning by doing” credit Girl Scouts as the reason they’ve become a leader in more activities with their friends and classmates, as well as in their community. They also become better at conflict resolution, problem-solving, team-building and cooperation, and are more likely to develop confidence, healthy relationships and positive life skills. “When girls lead, the world succeeds. Girl Scouts is the largest organization in the world where girls call the shots and take charge of their own future,” said Anna Maria Chávez, CEO of Girl Scouts of the USA. “A troop who loves roller-coasters might invite an engineer to join them at their local amusement park to learn about what makes their stomach drop in real time, while another troop might be interested in what happens when you recycle a bottle, and plan a visit to their town’s recycling plant. By doing what they’re interested in and deciding how to learn more, they are developing leadership skills that aren’t offered by any other extracurricular activity.” Hands-on learning opportunities and girl-led experiences in Girl Scouts also supplement the academic learning girls receive in school. These fun and empowering experiences have been shown to boost girls’ social and emotional skills, which are not generally a part of a school curriculum, as well as improve academic performance. And since learning by doing is best facilitated in small environments, Girl Scouts’ 3:1 adult volunteer to girl ratio gives girls the optimal experience to tap into their interests and talents, and the chance to explore fun, new experiences in STEM, entrepreneurship, and the outdoors. Girls can join a traditional Girl Scout troop, and to meet the busy lifestyle of today’s girls, Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland also offers the Juliette program, where individual girl members can enjoy Girl Scouting without the commitment of joining a troop. To learn more about Girl Scouts, go to kansasgirlscouts.org or call Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland at 888-686-MINT (6468). ### Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland serves more than 15,000 girls and adults in 80 Kansas counties through its operational headquarters in Wichita, Kan., and regional offices in Salina, Hays, Emporia and Garden City. Founded in 1912, Girl Scouts is the leading authority on girls’ healthy development and is the pre-eminent leadership development organization for girls. Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place.
