Girl Scouts Turns 100 Years Old! HEADLINE

Have you heard the news? Girl Scouts is turning 100 years old on March 12, 2012. For those of you counting down at home, that's only 235 days away! You can watch our countdown clock on our website! For 100 years, Girl Scouts has been transforming the lives of young girls and building our country's future leaders!  How amazing is that?


This momentous occasion provides a unique opportunity for our community to connect and discover what today's Girl Scouts are doing. When Juliette Gordon Low founded Girl Scouts in 1912, her dream for a girl-centered organization was a visionary idea. In the 21st century of Girl Scouting, our girls continue to be visionaries.

Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas and Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM)

According to the National Science Foundation, women make up 46% of the U.S. labor force, but only 22% of science and engineering professions. Although young girls are precocious learners, by fifth grade, many girls shy away from math and science. Academic stereotypes and lack of encouragement for girls has resulted in fewer girls taking science or math classes and even less pursuing higher education and careers in these fields than boys.  


With that in mind, Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas has taken the lead among Girl Scout councils in Texas on a Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) initiative.  In conjunction with Texas Instruments, we hosted a STEM Visioning Conference in April to identify a collaborative vision to develop relevant programming and activities for Girl Scouts in Texas.

Camp with Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas!

We all know that Girl Scouts are great campers! Our Girl Scouts love to explore the outdoors and learn about nature and the environment. Numerous studies have confirmed the value of outdoor education. Natural spaces stimulate children's limitless imaginations and foster creativity. Children who connect with nature may be more inventive and better problem-solvers due to the hands-on learning that the outdoors provides. The outdoor leadership experience is the brand promise of Girl Scouts.  


By participating in our outdoor leadership programs, girls face challenges and celebrate their successes when they accomplish something they may never have dreamed possible prior to their camp experiences.
