The Sea Lab program, September 17-19, for Cadette, Senior and Ambassador Girl Scouts has always been one of our most popular programs. Registrations have been slow this year and several leaders have expressed concern about the conditions at Dauphin Island due to the oil spill. The staff at the Sea Lab has assured us that this program will go on, as planned.
Beach conditions vary greatly from place to place and time to time. The safety and well being of our girls is our top priority and modifications will be made to the program, should conditions necessitate them. However, we still expect this to be a wonderful program and are optimistic that we will have sufficient registrations. The deadline has been extended to August 20, 2010. Please contact Mary Anne, extension 1202, for further information.

Matlock, Johnnie Cochran, Clarence Darrow, Perry Mason, John Grisham, Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Hilary Rodham Clinton, Elizabeth Dole, Barack and Michelle Obama are famous (fictional and real) lawyers.
Lawyers have many options over the course of their careers. Besides private practice, they can become a prosecutor, government counsel, corporate in-house counsel, judge, arbitrator, law professor or politician. Legal training is good preparation for many non-legal jobs, such as corporate executive, government administrator, investment banker, entrepreneur or journalist.
Girl Scouts in middle school and high school can explore what it takes to be a lawyer with a young, female attorney. A new series pathway focused on legal careers is starting, and we want girls to shape this group. June 22, girls will meet to decide:
What activities do the girls want to do? How often do they want to meet? How do they want to communicate? What do they want to call themselves? Do they want to work on IP's? Do they want to go on trips?
Get your girls involved in this from the ground up by RSVP'ing by June 21 to Molly Smart at extension 1402.
When: 4 - 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 22
Where: Volunteer Center, Mobile

It's Your Story--Tell It! Journey Series
Available in December 2010, the "It's Your Story--Tell It!" leadership journey series uses a storytelling theme in a fun and grade-level relevant way for girls to better understand themselves and their potential.
On this journey, an emphasis is also placed on media literacy and creative expression. All along the journey, girls have opportunities to engage in a variety of arts, including performing, visual, culinary, and new media, to tell their stories and take action to make the world a better place.
Check out the grade level titles and themes, and get a taste of the "It's Your Story--Tell It!" journey series right now by downloading the activities below and trying them with girls in troops, groups, series, events and camps.
Daisies learn just how much they can care for animals and for themselves--and just how good that makes them feel.
Brownie: A World of Girls
Stories teach Brownies clues about how they can create positive change in the world--change that affects girls.
Juniors learn just how many roles are open to them in the world and the possibilities those roles open for them.
Cadettes look for the ME in media and learn how they can shape media--for themselves, their community and the world.
Senior: MISSION: SISTERHOOD!
Seniors learn how widening their network broadens their world, and benefits the world as well.
Ambassador: BLISS: Live It! Give It!
Ambassadors learn to dream big, now and for their future, and begin their legacy as leaders who help others achieve their dreams too.
