What do influential, world-changing leaders like Venus Williams, Karlie Kloss, Melinda Gates, and Dolores Huerta have in common? They’re all Girl Scout alums! That’s right—before they were breaking barriers and opening doors for the next generation, they all swore to live by the Girl Scout Promise and Law.
They’re also living proof of the power behind Girl Scouting: studies show that Girl Scouts are more confident, seek more challenges, and are more active in identifying and solving community problems than other girls. When it comes to dreaming big, innovating, taking risks, and leading the way, Girl Scouts and Girl Scout alums have always been at the forefront.
We’re thrilled to debut an exciting new campaign celebrating notable Girl Scout alums and their monumental accomplishments. Not only do these incredible women serve as role models for today’s girls, but they also show those who might only know us for our cookies what Girl Scouts are truly made of.
How can you help? We need you to:
- Head to www.girlscouts.org/leadership to see what all the buzz is about, then help us spread the message via your social networks and friend groups.
- Rock your favorite Girl Scout gear on May 15 to show the world what a Girl Scout really looks like! Whether you’re wearing your full uniform, pairing a Girl Scout tee or tie with a blazer for the office, or heading to the gym in your Girl Scout hoodie, show pride in the organization that prepares girls to be the leaders we need today. Not sure what to wear? Green is always a great option!
