Honor Our Past and Make 2012 the Year Of The Girl!
I am extraordinarily fortunate. You see, I am the Chief Executive Officer of Girl Scouts of Virginia Skyline, my dream job. Every day I am inspired by our girl members — by their development as they discover, connect and take action. I am equally moved by the commitment of our adult volunteers, staff, and board of directors as we work in unison to live the Girl Scout mission of building girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place. As you know, we don’t just help the girl; we help the girl change her world.
In 2012, we will observe the 100th Anniversary of Girl Scouts — a time to celebrate and honor the rich history and impact of this movement that has touched the lives of so many. It is also a time to strategize and map the future of Girl Scouting to ensure its viability and influence as we move forward into the next century. Now, more than ever, the Girl Scout movement and the need for girl-centric leadership development are critical. Ensuring that Girl Scouting is available for every girl is pivotal.
Do you know what Girl Scouts are up to in your community? Well, it could be any number of fun and experiential activities — community service projects, environmental stewardship, cultural exchanges, healthy-living initiatives, outdoor adventures, sports, camping, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) activities, domestic and international travel, and so much more — all while realizing the fun, friendship and power of girls together. Girl Scouting helps girls reach their full individual potential and relate to others with increasing understanding, skill, and respect. We help girls develop values to guide their actions and provide the foundation for sound decision-making. We help build leaders!
In a very personal and heartfelt way, I respectfully ask you to join me as we celebrate the past and forge on to make Girl Scouting vital and impactful in the future. Please consider a gift to Girl Scouts of Virginia Skyline. We need your help today. We owe it to our girls to give them the opportunity to be the leaders they want to be — and the leaders the world needs them to be.
