A New Look


Connect eNews is your weekly source of Girl Scout volunteer information! We're getting ready to introduce a fresh new look to serve you better! Troop leaders, service unit volunteers, and all the other supporters who make Girl Scouting possible can look for news just for YOU. As always, if there is information you want to see in your Connect,

let us know!



Around the Corner

Coming up for Troops and Service Units


Calling all Volunteers, we are looking for Girl Scout members ages 14 and up (girl and adult members) to represent Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland as National Convention Delegates. The 2014 National Conference is October 16-19, 2014, in Salt Lake City. Get the details and find the application here!


Troop Leaders, check out the 2014 Honor Troop Program! Honor Troop is a proud distinction that all troops can work towards in 2014, but don't delay! Find the Honor Troop requirements here!


Interested in teaching First Aid or CPR...or know someone who might be? There are two opportunities coming up to become certified instructors though the National Safety Council - October 19 in Hays, and October 26 in Wichita.
