Now that school has started, it is a great time to join a local Girl Scouts troop. Girl Scouts can help your girls grow personally and professionally while making life-long friends. With it being the perfect time to sign your girls up for the Girl Scouts, Girl Scouts of the USA just released data show the organizations benefit for girls and volunteers.
Results of a summer 2014 pulse poll conducted with over 3,500 volunteers and parents of Girl Scouts in the K−5 age range show positive effects on members of all ages. Ninety-seven percent of parents agree that Girl Scouts has been a positive activity for their daughter, that she has had fun and exciting new experiences (95 percent), and that she has learned or tried something new (96 percent). In addition, 94 percent of parents say that because of Girl Scouts their daughter feels special, has more friends (95 percent), and is happier (89 percent).

The data shows it is not just girls who benefit: 94 percent of volunteers have made new friends, 88 percent believe their life is better because they volunteer with Girl Scouts, and two-thirds believe their volunteer experience has helped them professionally. Ninety-five percent of Girl Scout volunteers are happy knowing they are making girls’ lives better.

If you are looking for a safe, fun and engaging place for your girls, now is the time to join the Orange County Girl Scouts. Help shape your daughter flourish and become the next generation of female leaders.

Girl Scouts is open to all girls from kindergarten through grade 12. To join or volunteer, visit: www.girlscouts.org/join or visit a local parenting meeting.
