Countdown to Cookies!

The World's Largest Girl-Run Business

Volunteers, the world's largest girl-run business is coming to Kansas Heartland soon! Be sure to check out the Cookies & More Page on the website for all the Cookie information you need - including forms, dates, and contact information.


Invitations for the 2013 Cookie Kickoff are in the mail. You can see all of the  locations across the council here:


North Central Kansas Leadership Conference 

You don't want to miss this!


All volunteers are invited to the North Central Kansas Leadership Conference, scheduled for January 26 in Salina! Spend the day focusing on your leadership abilities, and learn new skills that apply to Girl Scouting and beyond! Network with other volunteers, prepare for the cookie sale, and attend workshops just for YOU! There is no cost, and lunch will be provided. Check out the details and register online!  


Southwest Kansas folks, don't forget about the SWKS Leadership Conference coming up THIS Saturday!



Spotlight On:  

Lisa Cech, Business Mgr/ Product Sales Asst, Hays   

Get to know your council support!  


  In a typical week at the office: it's all a blur, with lots and lots of talking to volunteers, supporters and staff! 


My favorite line in the GS Law is: Can I have two?  Honest and fair and also; responsible for what I say and do.


When I'm not here, you'll find me: either at home or at Boy Scouts.


Just for Older Girls 

First Aid & CPR and Outdoor Leadership


Girl Scouts in grades 9-12 are now invited to attend First Aid & CPR and Outdoor Leadership sessions with adult volunteers! We are excited to open up these courses for girls and volunteers to work together. Check out the upcoming events to the right. More 2013 options will be scheduled soon!


GSKH Activities & Partners  

Navigating with your GPS


Partnership Organizations align with the mission and values of the Girl Scouts, and create unique leadership activities for girls.  We offer these activities for large groups of girls on set dates, and GSKH processes the registrations online and in our offices.  Check the listings on the Activities Calendar!  


Collaborators provide Programs-on-Demand or Community Service opportunities for troops, service units, groups and individual members, which can be tailored to particular schedules and interests. The opportunities are available by contacting the community partners directly using the contact information provided in the GPS or online.  See Collaborators opportunities here! 


A Community Offering is an organization that offers programming to everyone, or wishes to offer a discount or special offer to Girl Scout members. The event does not have to be tailored specifically to the Girl Scouts.  You might find a new community offering in your area just by asking a local business or organization!  Find Community Offerings on our website here.
