G.I.R.L. 2020 Travel
Safety has always been at the heart of all Girl Scout activities. The National Board held a special meeting on Tuesday, April 21, to discuss the National Council Session (NCS) and G.I.R.L. 2020/convention. The board made the difficult decision to cancel all other in-person events that were planned as part of G.I.R.L. 2020/Girl Scouts’ convention, including the Global Roundtable.
The Girl Scout National Convention was slated to take over Orlando, Florida from October 21 - 25.
Along with the convention, where Girl Scouts embrace the grand sisterhood by convening with Girl Scouts from all over the country, and where delegates vote on issues in Girl Scouting, the convention will also host the world’ largest girl-led event for girls on October 23 - 25.
Hosted by Girl Scouts of the USA, the mega event, aptly named G.I.R.L. 2020, will provide attendees with unforgettable experiences as they gain inspiration, tools to empower themselves, and the know-how to lead change in their communities—connecting with some of the most influential women in the world along the way. So awesome!
Girl Scouts and Troop Leaders who are ready for long-distance travel are encouraged to plan a Troop Trip to attend this special event.
Not sure if your troop is ready? Have your girls, parents and guardians, and troop leaders take the “Am I ready for travel?” quiz on pages four to six of the Girl Scout Guide to U.S. Travel. If girls aren’t quite ready, know that you should start practicing travel now to prepare by October 2020.
If your Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama troop expresses interest in attending G.I.R.L. 2020, email Customer Care to have your troop leader’s name and contact information added to a list of interested travelers.
