GSUSA Launches New Recruitment Campaign
You know that feeling you get when you just can't wait for tomorrow to come because something exciting is getting ready to happen? GSUSA is capturing that feeling of anticipation for the 2013/2014 recruitment season with its new
"I Can't Wait To" campaign.
The campaign transcends languages and ages across all of our audiences - especially girls in grades K-5, their caregivers and potential volunteers. From the words to the visuals, this campaign is designed to show girls and adults that with us, they will always have something to be excited about!
In the coming weeks, you will begin to see new recruitment materials- including a new campaign logo, interest cards, posters, clip art, signatures and more. One of the first things the public will see are the Girl Scout flyers promoting fall membership that will be used to attract girls and parents to our Express Events. Check them out here and here!
GSCP2P has also created a new girl component for fall membership that goes hand-in-hand with the new materials. This year, girls will be able to introduce their friends to Girl Scouting through the Add-A-Friend patch program.
Girls who bring a friend to join will be eligible to purchase the Add-A-Friend patch and charms. See the Discover Guide for more details or click here for the registration form. Remember, when you hear a girl say, "I can't wait to be a Girl Scout," you know it's something she's excited about!
