The Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama say their organization is a vital community need.
They came on Studio10 to talk about all of the great things they do in our community. Some of those are listed below.
*In Mobile County alone, troops have recently constructed a helipad for medical evacuations in Citronelle, signed up to make dinner for the ladies at McKemie Place (a women-only homeless shelter), painted the trash cans at the Medal of Honor Park, rebuilt a boardwalk at the Dauphin Island Bird Sanctuary that was destroyed by fire, prepared dinner for families at the Ronald McDonald house, and much much more!
*Every day, some 15 million children are without supervision at home or on the street after school. Children who are unsupervised after school are not only in danger of becoming victims of crimes or accidents, but are also at risk for falling behind academically, socially, and emotionally.
*According to a Girl Scout research titled Girl Scouting Works: The Alumnae Impact Study, women who were Girl Scouts displayed more positive life outcomes, higher incomes, and higher education levels than women who were not Girl Scouts.
*From traditional troops, to public housing communities, juvenile detention centers, Head Start centers, and afterschool programs, all Girl Scout activities help girls engage in positive self-expression, increase their ability to make positive life changes, gain self-confidence and develop the skills needed to become a leader.
*Girl Scouts need more volunteers
Every year, there are hundreds of girls who won’t be able to benefit from the Girl Scout experience because there are not enough volunteers. Girl Scout volunteers are critical to providing a safe and supportive environment in which girls can be themselves, have fun, and experience new things.
Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama has different volunteer opportunities that will fit around your schedule.
