Hey Girl Scouts! Do you want to be a part of organizing the largest girl-led event ever? Would you like to work hands-on with a mentor in the career field of your interest? Now’s the time to get your application ready for the G.I.R.L. 2020 G-TEAM Internship!
Last October, thousands of girls and mentors from around the world gathered together in Columbus, Ohio for G.I.R.L. 2017 . The event, hosted by Girl Scouts of the USA, provided attendees with inspiration, tools to empower themselves, and the know-how to lead real change in their communities.
Panels were led by accomplished public figures such as Chelsea Clinton, Gabby Douglas, Barbara Pierce Bush, and more. Additional sessions featured female leaders from companies such as Facebook, Instagram, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, NASA, and AT&T.
The coolest part? The event was planned by a group of Girl Scouts!
In preparation for Girl Scouts’ 55th National Council Session and G.I.R.L. 2020 in Orlando, Florida, GSUSA is seeking 25 new members to join the G-Team and help plan the event. All registered Girl Scouts currently enrolled in 8th, 9th, or 10th grade are eligible to apply. An added bonus for 2020, there is now a secondary element to joining the G-TEAM where girls will be able to partake in an internship experience and work with an experienced mentor in a specific career field! Girls will be able to apply for experiences in areas such as Marketing, Event Production, Governance, Logistics, and more.
Girls selected for this opportunity will be expected to attend virtual meetings three times per month for the next two years, to attend in-persons meeting in Orlando and New York City, and to attend the entire G.I.R.L. event held in Orlando in 2020. All travel and costs for the meetings and event will be covered by Girl Scouts of the USA.
Are you ready to gain incredible experience, connections and memories? If you want to show the world the real power of a G.I.R.L., apply today! The application will be open from October 19th until November 19th at midnight eastern time.
