Girl Scouts, Hornets' Nest Council (GSHNC) is kicking off the next century of Girl Scouting with membership recruitment nights throughout our 8-county service area.  During this time, girls in kindergarten through seniors in high school can register and/or learn the benefits of joining the premier leadership organization for girls.  Program areas for girls include environmental leadership, STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), community building and healthy living.  Girl Scouts discover themselves, connect with others and take action to make the world a better place.

Recruitment nights are designed for potential Girl Scouts and volunteers to learn more about the Girl Scout organization, its mission, various pathways for participation, time commitment and what it means to join Girl Scouts.  Registration will be available for all interested girls and adults.  Annual membership dues are $12; financial assistance is available.  Staff members and current volunteers will be available to answer questions.

New this year, there are many different ways to participate as a Girl Scout.  While joining a troop is still a very popular option for participation, girls may also follow a "Series Pathway," which is a 6-8 week Girl Scout experience with a specific theme.  Series will be offered multiple times a year, adn we are seeking both girls and volunteers for participation.  Other options for participation include the "Events Pathway" which gives girls local and council-wide opportunities for education and fun by attending one time events all year long, and/or the "Camp Pathway."  All these pathways and more will be reviewed at the upcoming membership recruitment nights.There are also countless and flexible ways to volunteer for Girl Scouts as an adult.  Complete training is provided to all new volunteers and local support staff are available to assist.  "This is an exciting time to join Girl Scouting," said Sally Daley, GSHNC CEO.  "We've got more ways for girls to participate in programs through our five pathways to develop girls' leadership skills for nearly 16,500 girls in our area.  Volunteers are needed in order to reach additional girls desiring to participate."
