Other Opportunities: January 2010 Archives

Our annual meeting is approaching (March 27), and the council will be contacting volunteers to serve as delegates.  Being a delegate is a very important job and you may wonder what exactly a delegate does. Delegates are members of the Girl Scout movement who are 14 years of age or over and are registered within the council's jurisdiction.

 

As a delegate of the council, some of the duties include participating in important elections, such as electing the officers of the council, the members-at-large of the Board of Directors, the members of the Council Governance Committee and the delegators to the National Council of GSUSA. Delegates attend to other business that might come before the members as well.  Learn more about the role of the delegate in our council's bylaws

Are any of your girls high school seniors and planning on going to college? Their volunteer work could help them get a scholarship. The Junior League of Mobile is now accepting applications for their Young Woman Leadership Scholarship. This scholarship is available to young women in their senior year of high school and is available to one young woman in Mobile County and one in Baldwin County. The two scholarship recipients will be awarded a $1500 scholarship each.

 

Applicants should demonstrate a commitment to volunteering and community improvement, innovative and creative actions that reach out to and motivate others, commitment to continued education, and at least one year volunteer experience in addition to school related service requirements. This scholarship sounds perfect for a Girl Scout, who fulfills all of these requirements!

 

The registration deadline is March 15, and there are several requirements to apply.  If you would like an application, call or e-mail Mary Anne Brutkiewicz at 251.344.3330, ext. 1202.
