Girl Scouts honor their leaders on Girl Scout Leader Appreciation Day, April 22 (during National Volunteer Week). These devoted leaders unselfishly
donate their time and energy to plan and lead fun and educational troop meetings and outings for the members of their troops. Girl Scout leaders
possess caring hearts and creative minds, doing everything within their power to help expand the girls' horizons, giving them countless
opportunities they normally would not come across. These experiences can range anywhere from organizing programs for special needs
individuals to community services to learning about various cultures of the world at an international fair to grooming horses on a farm. These
seemingly tireless leaders dedicate themselves year round to helping girls develop into self-assured, resourceful young women.
For those of you who have a daughter in Girl Scouting, please take a moment to think about their leader (or leaders). Think about how at each
troop meeting the leader is prepared to have your daughter experience new challenges and gain positive skills for the future. Think about the
amount of time the leader devotes to preparing for meetings and field trips while balancing her own family, career and other time constraints.
These women make such a difference in the lives of girls. They are essential to making Girl Scouting the outstanding and successful program
it is known to be. There can never be enough of these amazing women.
We invite you to comment below and recognize your Leader and Co-Leaders, and let them know how much you appreciate all that they do.
