After years of inactivity, efforts are under way to revive the Girl Scouts of the NMI.
The non-profit volunteer group is set to host an open house registration at 5:30pm on Sept. 27, Thursday, at the American Memorial Park Amphitheater.
President Tania P. David said they are looking for girls who want to become girl scouts and learn valuable life skills while having fun.
Girl scouting provides girls with opportunities for fun and friendship while fostering the development of leadership skills and self-esteem through activities in science and technology, business and economic literacy, and outdoor and environmental awareness.
In a statement, David said they are also encouraging parents and family members to register as adult volunteers and help with troop activities and other events.
“We will be providing all the necessary information at the open house and would like to invite all interested participants to attend,” said David. “We are looking forward to a great 'Year of the Girl' by establishing active troops and volunteers.”
David said the local revival of the Girl Scouts is timely as the Girl Scouts of the USA is celebrating 100 years this year with “so much exciting activities and opportunities for our young and adult volunteers.”
The largest organization for girls in the world, Girl Scouts of the USA aims to “build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.”
