Though much of the school year looks very different for children across Alabama this fall, Girl Scouting is still here and stronger than ever. The Girl Scouts of North-Central Alabama invites parents and guardians of girls from kindergarten to senior year of high school to look at how Girl Scouting can supercharge their girl’s confidence, now and throughout her life.
Studies show Girl Scouts improves girls’ confidence and makes them better prepared for life’s challenges, and resilience is a skill girls need now more than ever. Girl Scouts is dedicated to helping girls follow their dreams while discovering new interests, strengths, and abilities. Girls across Alabama enjoy Girl Scouts because they can pursue their own passions. Right now, Girl Scouts are learning about robots, hiking, painting murals, feeding the hungry, and even writing laws to change the world.
Girl Scouting is journey parents and guardians can take with their girl. While girls are learning about STEM, the outdoors, entrepreneurship, and important life skills, they are also discovering new ways to make their family and community stronger, kinder, and better for everyone. Girl Scouts is more than just a moment in a girl’s life, it’s a Movement dedicated to building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place.
Girl Scouts from the same community, called troops, are meeting and planning an upcoming year of adventures – and there are spots available for new girl and adult members this fall. This year, girls can experience the community of a Girl Scout troop in new ways – girls can participate either in-person, completely virtually, or choose a hybrid route. Together with adult volunteers—often parents or caregivers—girls select exciting hands-on activities and projects, try new things, and cheer each other on. Together, they earn badges to reflect their successes and set new goals.
Girl Scouts of North-Central Alabama events have also pivoted – allowing girls opportunities to earn badges, get outdoors, and serve their communities in a variety of in-person and virtual ways.
Membership dues are just $25 annually, but financial aid is available. To learn more, find an existing troop or start a new one, or see upcoming Discover Girl Scout parties, visit our website at www.girlscoutsnca.org.
