Other Opportunities: November 2009 Archives

Join the Daytona 500 Experience to honor women pioneers in auto sports while hosting the Women in the Winner's Circle exhibit co-founded by racing legend Lyn St. James.  Girls will be surrounded by everything Girl Power stands for and develop within themselves what it takes to be a successful female not only in the auto industry but also on any path life takes them.  Your favorites such as the speedway tour, IMAX movie and arcade tokens will be included as well as a food voucher to allow you to choose what you'd like to eat at the 4th Turn Grill.  Cap it all off with a special guest speaker and your troop will have a day they won't soon forget.

 

For those who are still craving adventure, they are offering the first sleepover for Girl Scouts.  You will receive everything the day program has to offer, but also get to continue into the night with Girl Power Team Building Sessions, a pizza party, movie and continental breakfast.  Because the sleepover is held inside the attraction space is limited so reserve your spot now!

Last year nearly 200 Girl Scouts from southern Alabama attended Wicked in Birmingham and raved about it.  Now, we want to offer this opportunity to those that missed out on it. Broadway Across America will present Wicked at the new Mahalia Jackson Theatre in New Orleans, and Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama will attend the matinee Saturday, April 3, 2010, at 2 p.m. We realize that this is Easter weekend; however, we have Girl Scout program conflicts the other matinee weekends.

Winner of three Tonys, Wicked is the story of the witches of Oz before Dorothy arrived in Munchkinland. The play is appropriate for ages 8 and up, but is enjoyed by all ages on different levels.

Ticket prices are $45 for upper balcony ($25 deposit) and $85 ($45 deposit) for lower balcony. Deposits are due November 24 and are non-refundable. Deposits will be returned if there are not sufficient registrations for this program.  Final payments are due January 8, 2010. Send event registrations and deposits to Mary Anne Brutkiewicz (ext. 1202) at the Mobile Service Center. Registrations may be mailed, faxed (251.344.4181) or e-mailed to mbrutkiewicz@girlscoutssa.org.   

power_of_girls.jpg It's hard to believe but most of the 800 million girls around the world are treated differently from boys. In some parts of the world, simply being born a girl means being kept from going to school and told to just do chores and raise a family.

Yet, did you know, that the more education a girl gets, the more likely she is to have a healthy family, a solid income to invest back into her community, and a vision for her future? When a girl thrives, so do whole communities. Pretty amazing, right?

Empowering girls today is a global issue. There are girls everywhere in the world, including the United States, who aren't treated fairly. We have the power to change this and it starts with YOU!

Girl Scouts USA, CARE, Seventeen Magazine and the Documentary Group are asking teen girls, their families, troop leaders and other mentors to make a pledge at The Power of Girls to learn more about issues facing girls around the world. The goal is to collect 50,000 pledges by International Women's Day in March of 2011.

So empower yourself with information!  Take the pledge!
