For Daisy Troop 18357, it’s never too early to think about future career options! The troop recently toured the fire hall at Plymouth Fire Station III, where they learned from female firefighters (and a former Girl Scout!) about the aspects of working in a male-dominated field. The girls learned about the importance of teamwork, as well as tips on fire and safety prevention. Most importantly, they learned that they can do whatever they want to do when they grow up.
Through experiences like this one, troop leader Rachel Bonach is busting stereotypes and teaching girls to have open minds about opportunities they otherwise wouldn’t think are possible for them, and that the sky is the limit when it comes to future career options. “In leading the troop, I want these girls to be brave and courageous and not meek and scared,” Rachel said.
At Girl Scouts, all girls—from Daisies to Ambassadors—are encouraged to unleash the G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)TM within, through transformative experiences and our commitment to preparing girls for a lifetime of leadership.
