Dear Members, Volunteers, Parents, Alumnae and Friends of GSEP,
Spring is finally here, and what a busy March it has been!
We want to thank you all for your hard work, dedication, and enthusiasm during this year's Cookie Season. We know the girls had lots of fun, and more importantly, gained hands-on leadership and entrepreneurial skills.
It is always inspiring to see our Girl Scouts in action, and I was fortunate to join 175 girls - from Daisies to Ambassadors - at the Real Girls Social Impact Conference held on March 15 at Chestnut Hill College.
It was a privilege to speak to the girls about social entrepreneurship and share my personal journey to where I am today. I reflected on the 10 Things I Wish I Knew When I was 16 and encouraged the girls to set their goals high, work hard, and follow their dreams. Check out photos from the day and learn more about the Social Impact Conference on our website.
You can keep up to date on everything that's going on at GSEP by following us on Facebook
. And don't forget to let us know what you're up to as well! You can check out some of the accomplishments and photos that troops have shared with us recently at the end of this email.
Yours in Scouting,
Volunteer Appreciation Week and Leader's Day
April is a special time when we thank our dedicated volunteers, whose tireless work make Girl Scouting possible. This month, show your troop leaders how much you value them during Volunteer Appreciation Week, April 6-12, and Leader's Day, April 22!
Leader's Day honors the volunteers who work as leaders and mentors to our Girl Scouts. This is a perfect time for girls, their families, and communities to pay tribute to the volunteers who make the Scouting experience so meaningful and successful!
Consider writing a thank you note or giving a gift to your favorite troop leader. Our retail shops have lots of great Girl Scout gift options, or check out our Facebook page for creative hand-made gift ideas!
