Girls Need Girl Scouts Now More Than Ever
We know that when girls succeed, so do families and communities. But today’s girls are faced with some major barriers to their success:
- Only 1 in 5 girls believes she has what it takes to lead
- Only half of girls feel confident making financial decisions
- Half of girls think that STEM careers aren’t for women
- 25% of today’s girls have been bullied
Girl Scouts provides the right experiences and environment to help girls defy the statistics and grow into young women who can lead and succeed.
About the Program
Each year, Girl Scouts River Valleys signature event has served as an opportunity for guests to reconnect with a network of passionate leaders ready to be a voice for our girls in our community.
With a program led by special host and emcee Roxane Battle, girls will share their personal stories on how Girl Scouts has transformed their lives and communities. Be inspired to join the movement that’s giving all girls a supportive space to take chances, chart a course, and create change!
