In a move designed to focus national attention on girls and the issues they face, Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) has declared 2012 the Year of the Girl: a celebration of girls, recognition of their leadership potential, and a commitment to creating a coalition of like-minded organizations and individuals in support of balanced leadership in the workplace and in communities across the country.


During the Year of the Girl, Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada will mix celebrations of the organization's 100 years as the preeminent leadership experience for girls with efforts to create a sense of urgency around girls' issues.
