The Girls World Forum 2012 will take place July 11-17 in Chicago. The focus of the GWF will be three of the United Nations' Millennium Development Goals: Ending hunger and poverty; Empowering girls; and saving the planet. Delegates will develop skills and networks to bring about change in their community and country. Each council is allowed to send two delegates. Delegates must be between the ages of 14-18, actively involved in the Girl Scout council, interested in the United Nations MDGs, and willing to implement a plan for change in their community.
We are also seeking applications for a young (18-30) volunteer active in Girl Scouting willing to chaperone girls and work with them upon returning home to implement plans in their community. Cost of the program is $650 per participant, which includes lodging, meals, programs, and transportation in Chicago. Interested girls and volunteers should contact Mary Anne Brutkiewicz to apply by February 15.
