ANYONE who registers for the 2014 – 2015 year between now and June 15 will receive a Fun Patch. However, this is where it gets really exciting, we have great rewards for Service Units too! Just take a look:

Today, GSNI Alumnae Alexandra Fleig, writes about her experience at the Girl Leadership Institute (GSLI) two years ago.

 

Two years ago I had the opportunity to attend the Girl Scout Leader Institute, GSLI, in Houston, Texas that was part of the Girl Scout National Convention. I went with a great group of girls and chaperones that met before the event to get to know each other, to work on our take action project for GSLI, to make S.W.A.P.S., and to get information about how to choose the activities we would be doing while at GSLI and other information about it. Before we left we ranked activities for every day that sparked our interest and when we got to Houston we got a schedule with the activities we got. My favorite session was one where we learned about astronauts and did tests like they would go through before they could go into space. It was really fun!! On top of all the sessions we got to participate in, there were speakers that came in and talked to us as whole, the speakers were very inspirational.
