Girl Scout Week—Sunday, March 11 – Saturday, March 17—is a week-long celebration when Girl Scouts spread the word about how they lead as a Girl Scout.

Show the world that Girl Scouts are G.I.R.L.s (Go-getters, Innovators, Risk-takers and Leaders) and lead by practicing grit, problem solving, risk-taking and leading with empathy.

Get Involved!

Sunday, March 11 – Saturday, March 17

1. Plan an activity that focuses on supporting women in leadership roles and then tell us about it!

It could be as simple as talking with a local woman business owner about how she got started, or inviting local women leaders—CEOs, legislators, business owners—to speak to the girls and young women in your community and share their stories. The possibilities are endless on what you can do!

Activity ideas:
Attend a lecture at a college or university given by a woman professor.
Connect with women legislators to discuss your community’s issues.

Afternoon with the Mayor

In Tooele, we have just recently elected the first ever Mayor of Tooele City--Debbie Winn.  Debbie has invited us to participate in the Town Hall and encourage female leaders.  We will be taking a tour of City Hall and shadow Debbie during an upcoming afternoon to see what she does and what action she has taken.  She is a big advocate for Scouts and is excited to share her "rags to riches" story with the girls. We have been invited to attend the City Council Meeting and Planning Commission Meeting to see our local government in action. 

Animal Rescue

We plan on learning and helping a woman who runs and operates an entire animal rescue. Girls will learn from her what it takes to run a rescue, as well as helping her do the chores necessary. The girls will also be accepting donations of blankets and food, to help show them what needs the animals and wounded animals have. We have asked the owner to discuss with the girls how she got to where she is, why she does what she does and how she impacts the local community. 

Community service

We will be picking up trash in our neighborhood.

Connecting with a local business woman

We will be going to a local business in the Ogden Valley that is owned and managed by a female. She will be speaking to our troop about owning her own business. Understand the up and downs of running a restaurant. Afterwards the girls will be able to ask questions and sample menu items. 

Discussion

We are going to be talking with women who work in male-dominated fields and learn about their hardships, goals, and experiences.  (I.e. - post office, courtrooms, etc)

Earn your Math Wiz Badge with Professor Barney

Join us as we have a guest host, Professor Mrs. Barney, to teach us about the world of Math.

 

 

 

We need Math and must understand math in so many various areas of life. You don‘t have to be brilliant in math to earn this Badge - Just start where you are! Math is everywhere around us.

 

 

 

The girls will get to see first hand a woman in the field of advanced math, and hear her story of how she got there. They will learn that in a field that not many women are part of that girls can make a difference and accomplish as well as add so much to the field. 

 

 

 

Shilad Sen said it best when he said “There’s research that shows that the best decision making happens when you have a diverse group of people,” and “If half the world’s population is not participating in math, you’re missing out on half of the really good people.”
