Happy Girl Scout Week!

Girl Scouts of Northern New Jersey are joining Girl Scouts, volunteers and alumnae around the country in celebrating Girl Scout Week from March 6-12. More than 3 million girls in the United States and more than 33,000 girls in northern New Jersey participate in the leadership program offered by Girl Scouts.
Girl Scouts of the USA was founded 99 years ago on March 12, 1912 by Juliette Gordon Low with the first troop of 18 girls in Savannah, Georgia. Low’s vision was to expand the opportunities for young girls to develop physically, mentally, and spiritually and open doors to possible future roles outside of the home. She emphasized resourcefulness and self-reliance, encouraging girls to experience the outdoors and set their sights on professional careers in art, science and business.
“Girl Scout Week is an opportunity to celebrate the history of Girl Scouting and help our girls to make the world a better place by giving back to their communities,” said Helen Wronski, president and CEO of Girl Scouts of Northern New Jersey. “It is also an opportunity to thank the more than 17,000 committed volunteers who give their time and dedication to delivering the Girl Scout leadership experience in 160 municipalities in the four and a half counties we serve.”
As part of Girl Scout Week, girls will be working on many different types of service projects, including food and clothing drives throughout northern New Jersey. Girl Scout Week projects are part of a broader initiative by Girl Scouting to help girls lead by example in their communities and in the larger world around them. With leadership development at the organization’s core, today’s Girl Scouts take part in a vast array of activities from extreme sports to international travel and science and technology projects, as well as gain knowledge about such things as business and economics.
