Every girl has the ability to lead, but only one girl in five believes she can. Together we can change this.
For over a century, Girl Scouts have been building girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. In New Hampshire and Vermont alone, nearly 10,000 girls are discovering their path to leadership through Girl Scouts. This spring, we’re excited to highlight our efforts to transform the leadership environment for girls through our exciting ToGetHerThere events.
With celebrations happening in the Upper Valley at the end of April, and in Concord in May, our ToGetHerThere luncheons celebrate the many achievements of our Girl Scouts and those of our ToGetHerThere Champions, while raising critical funds needed to help girls reach their full potential.
Year after year, girls in our council tell us how they’ve shot an arrow, rode a horse, or swam underwater for the first time while attending one of our summer camps. Throughout the year, our comprehensive programming instills the integral skills needed to ensure girls are well-equipped to navigate both her personal and professional life. We approach this responsibility with the dedication it deserves, offering girls a foundation for leadership development through such initiatives as the Girl Scout Cookie Program, Girls Rock the Capitol, World Thinking Day, and the Destinations travel program, for starters.
In short, we’re on the cusp of ushering in a leadership renaissance for girls, nurturing and elevating the next generation of female leaders who will leave an indelible imprint on our communities, the nation, and our world.
We need society to invest in girls—in a greater, more sustained capacity. And for a movement to reach the height of its impact, it must embrace allies outside the fold. We need our brethren-in-arms, our male counterparts who offer their unwavering support—in deeds and donations—and are integral to sustaining our cause for the long haul.
Your investment now is the fuel that propels our girls toward leadership greatness tomorrow. Ultimately, the leadership gap in America is not a girls’ issue or a women’s issue―it’s our issue. And that’s what lies at the heart of our ToGetHerThere events—we’re celebrating our fearless girls and their amazing potential.
