I have been an active member of Girl Scouts of America for 11 years. Within my troop we participate in coordinating events for local Girl Scouts and their families, sell cookies, nuts, and magazines annually, as well as participate in community service. Some of the community service events we participate in include, making Easter baskets for the local Women's Haven, making and sending Christmas gifts to our troops overseas and veterans, making and serving food at the Salvation Army, as well as providing hygiene and snack bags for each person we serve, and we recently provided care packs to be sent to the families in the Butte County area that were affected by the recent wildfires that California experienced last year. Also, my Girl Scout troop actively camps and advocates the preservation of the wilderness.
The Boy Scouts of America and the Girls Scouts of the USA are both nonprofit organizations that can be the most wonderful experiences in one’s life. Being a Boy Scout or Girl Scout can help the youth develop maturity and character, as they grow with age and enter adulthood. Through the process of volunteering and showing leadership skills, Boy Scouts of America and Girls Scouts of the USA are both life-changing organizations. One involved in any of the two organizations will create unity throughout their community and uphold a legacy. While the youth involved in one of the two organizations earn achievements and countless awards, scouting can be utilized to create an exceptional college admission resume. Although the Girls Scouts of the
Girl Scouts is a program and community for young girls. The Girl, in Girl Scouts, stands for Go-getter, Innovative, Risk-taker, Leader™. I believe in all of these things. I think Girl Scouts is a great opportunity for girls to become confident with themselves, learn to be kind and selfless and learn to be a leader. I have been a Girl Scout for a long time now, and am working on my silver award. I feel that all girls should have the ability to be a Girl Scout and learn how to make the world a better place.

I am glad to say that I will begin the installation of the brand new sign for the St. Margaret's Parish Center this weekend for my Eagle Scout Project. The new sign has just been finished, and I am in need of a few dedicated scouts to assist me in the installation. I am looking for between 8-12 scouts to help out this Saturday between 9:00 - 12:00 and 12:00 - 3:00. Bring shovels, wheelbarrows, post diggers, and of course work gloves and safety glasses. If all goes to plan, we should get through all of the work on Saturday, but we may need some people to help out on Monday aswell. Thanks to everybody for your support, and remember to sign up on the Troop Web Site so I know how much food to get! Thanks again, hope to see
The boys and girls club have been serving children for 150 years. They have given their helping hand to millions of kids worldwide. The Boys and Girls club’s mission has always been “To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.” The Boys and Girl’s club was formed to assist underprivileged children or children who do not live in the best environment. This organization possesses a numerous amount of goals and achievements they want for each child in the program. They provide a safe and fun environment; help create skills for the future and help children build relationships with positive adults. In addition the
Through any given text, whether it be an advertisement or essay, authors tend to include some rhetorical strategies. They are usually meant to appeal to the audience. Some of these pieces include an advertisement for Dodge and the Girls Scouts as well as Queen Elizabeth’s “Speech to the Troops at Tilbury.” Although they aren’t the same thing, they follow the same example: Appealing to their audiences through the use of ethos, pathos, and logos. They do this by using very exotic phrases (mostly the Dodge one). For example, in the ad for the Girl Scouts, they use ethos, pathos, and logos to appeal to things female children may find interesting. To start out with, they use a rhetorical question: “What did you do today?” They then go on to list a series of exciting activities
I foresee a number of challenges that come with moving from a small town to a large city, especially during the college transition. One challenge I expect to be more troublesome will be that of having to manage my time effectively and efficiently with little to no interference from parental figures. This will no doubt be a daunting task as up until now parents do much of the planning with doctor’s appointments and making sure I balance fun and work. I believe that my experience planning for my Eagle Scout project will make the upheaval easier. I spent a decent portion of my summer planning to build a bridge from drawing designs, to purchasing supplies, to sending emails requesting help. Planning this project entirely on my own while still having
Girl Scout cookies are a time-honored tradition in America, but unfortunately they are only available once a year. To compete with Girl Scout cookies, other cookie companies, such as Keebler, have designed their own version of Girl Scout cookies. These cookies are sold year-round and are cheaper than actual Girl Scout cookies. This sounds like an exceptional deal for people and it should take business away from the Girl Scouts, however that is not the case. Despite being more expensive and only available once a year, Girl Scout cookies still remain the number one cookie choice. People still choose traditional Girl Scout cookies over the knockoff cookies because they believe that you cannot top the true Girl Scout cookies. Just like Girl
Where to begin? From start to finish this summer has been like no other. The 2D girls hit it off from the first week of camp with awesome sports and trips. Our very first trip was to gymnastics where our girls showed us their cool flips and tricks! Beach, Liberty science center, bowling, pump it up, and keansburg are just a few more of the fun trips we went on. Each day is jam packed with non stop fun and this is just glimpse of our everyday with you girls. Charlotte and Marilyn are always first in the pool showing us their cool pool tricks. When we have four square Linda, our superstar four square player, will be the first one running to be ace. Ruby and Leah are our star kickers helping us win our line soccer games! Who can forget our group name for the scavenger hunt?!? The 2D omelets definitely rocked it, taking first place! In dance, Grace, Mira, and Felicia always blow us away with their awesome moves!
I have been a member of Girl Scouts for eleven years. October 2014 I was nominated to represent the Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia as a delegate in the national convention in Salt Lake City, Utah. I am currently working to achieve my Gold Award, dealing with literacy among elementary school students, which I should complete by the end of this year. I also volunteer at the Columbia County Library every Monday. Though I worked backstage in my school’s drama production, I have also been on the stage for many productions including Peter Pan, the Jungle Book, Dear Santa, and numerous church Christmas plays. I am also very involved in my church. I have been an alter server for seven years and I am part of Life Teen and Word Wide
"I’ve got something for the girls of Savannah, and all America, and all the world, and we’re going to start it tonight" (Juliette). This was how the unexpected founder Juliette Low started the girl scouts. Juliette was born Juliette Gordon Low on October 31, 1860 in Savannah, Georgia. She was the second of six children and never had any children of her own on the contrary, she had no problem working with children and helping them. She was deaf in both ears and had several other misfortunes in her life, however, instead of feeling guilt-ridden for herself, she went and created one of the leading scouts in the world today (Juliette). By opening up new opportunities for young girls, Juliette Low changed the values of her time and the way people
So my brother went through some marine boot camp in California and from the years he was a part of the training, he taught me some survival stuff, how to defend yourself basic stuff. When I was in high school I remember I used to see marines come during lunch time and talk to some people. They had some free bottles and keychains little trinkets. Just to come talk about what they are doing for training. Just last year I kne4w a friend that was in Boy Scout, and he became an Eagle Scout.
It was just an ordinary day when my mom asked me if I wanted to go to the National Scout Jamboree in West Virginia. Immediately I said yes. Not knowing what in the world a jamboree was, I asked my mom what it was. I was them able to realize that this trip was a trip of a lifetime.
I have received your request for a joint Brownie and Cub Scout field trip on a Saturday in May. The purpose of this letter is to decline your request.
