Week 3

Sign up For Scouting

Calling all 2013 Girl Scouts!  



A new Girl Scout year is right around the corner!  Have you contacted your MVP to get started on making plans in your area?  Sign up events are a great way to increase the visibility of Girl Scouts.    Remind the girls involved in Girl Scouts in your community to tell their friends about all the great things they get to experience.  Help with coordinating a sign up night at your local school.  Connect to other resources in your community such as the newspaper, chamber of commerce, recreation commission, or any other businesses that might have the ability to help promote Girl Scouts.

Follow her and a group of Kansas Girl Scouts to Japan!       


This year marked the 50 Anniversary Friendship Exchange between Kiryu Japanese Girl Scouts and Yokosuka American Girl Scouts. Six Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland and two chaperones were privileged to participate in the festivities.

Volunteer Opportunities in Wichita on July 28    

Looking for a way to get involved?  


Our annual Wichita area Mall Madness is just weeks away, and girls are getting excited. We are in need of volunteers to help with this fun event at Towne West Mall on Saturday, July 28! Most positions will be from 9-12 p.m., with a few spots starting at 5 p.m. We need volunteers to run activities, check-in participants, staff the volunteer center, distribute t-shirts, setup and tear-down, and "guard" the doors. We also need several certified First-Aiders on site (you must be certified in First Aid and CPR or work as medical professional). If you'd like to lend a hand, please contact Laura Baxter at 684-6531 ext .517.
