Let’s celebrate Girl Scout Week like a G.I.R.L.
Yay—Girl Scout Week is almost here! Let’s get ready for that special time of year when Girl Scouts of all ages celebrate and show the world what it means to be a G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™.
Let’s make this year’s activities extra special. Here are a few ideas to get you started—one for each day of Girl Scout Week.
Sunday, March 12—Celebrate Girl Scout's Birthday on Girl Scout Sunday by reconnecting with the Girl Scout Promise and Law. Learn more about Girl Scout history and our founder, Juliette Gordon Low; you could even hold a Girl Scout birthday party. (We’re 105 this year!) Do something to make the world a better place.
Monday, March 13—Be a go-getter and take action! You might launch a community service project or work toward a Girl Scout award.
Tuesday, March 14—Be an innovator and explore science, technology, engineering, and/or math (STEM)! You could create a fun project through Made with Code, meeting challenges head on and exploring new solutions.
Wednesday, March 15—Be a smart risk-taker and step out of your comfort zone! Get outside to explore and take action to protect our environment. Try a new outdoor activity with family or friends. Sign up for Girl Scout summer camp—or plan a different adventure. It could take place close to home, or around the world!
Thursday, March 16—Be a leader and show people you care! Commit “random acts of kindness” all day long. Be a good friend. Volunteer or donate to charity. Show the world your smile!
Friday, March 17—Get involved civically! Connect with your local (or school) officials and leaders. Learn about Girl Scouts' legislative agenda. Work toward earning your Global Action award.
Saturday, March 18—Observe Girl Scout Sabbath: the perfect time to honor one’s faith. Attend a religious service. Think about earning your My Promise, My Faith pin. Learn more about faiths different from your own.
But don’t stop there! Learn more about Girl Scout traditions and ceremonies. Or…take the lead like a Girl Scout and come up with some fun and meaningful activities of your own!
And don’t forget to show us how you’re celebrating all week long, by sharing your activities on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, using the hashtag #GirlScoutWeek.
Not currently involved with Girl Scouts? Join, volunteer, or donate!
Above all, take the opportunity during Girl Scout Week, and throughout the year, to share your awesome—and show the world how your courage, confidence, and character make the world a better place.
