- Families & Volunteers
Girl Scouts in the River Parishes are holding three recruitment events on Saturday, September 6, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Girl Scout representatives will be at the St. Charles West Regional Library, 105 Lakewood Drive, Luling; the St. Charles East Regional Library at 160 West Campus Drive, Destrehan, and at Highway 51 Park, 2900 Highway 51, LaPlace. The recruitments provide an opportunity for parents to learn more about the Girl Scout Leadership Experience and to register their daughters in Girl Scouts, as well as for adults who are interested in volunteering with Girl Scouts.
The mission of Girl Scouting is to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. In partnership with caring adult volunteers, girls develop leadership skills as they discover new interests, connect with others, and take action on issues that are important to them. Membership is $15 per year for girls and adults, making it a positive and affordable option for today’s busy families. Some favorite areas of interest for girls and adults include camping, health and fitness, the arts, science and technology, travel, cookie-selling, and much more. More information about the Girl Scout Leadership Experience is available at www.gsle.org.
The Girl Scout program levels are Girl Scout Daisies, kindergarten – 1st grade; Girl Scout Brownies, grades 2-3; Girl Scout Juniors, grades 4-5; Girl Scout Cadettes, grades 6-8; Girl Scout Seniors, grades 9-10; and Girl Scout Ambassadors, grades 11-12. No girl is denied membership for financial reasons.
