The Girl Scout Volunteer Experience, a series of trainings by Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois, is being offered throughout the end of July and the start of August. Attending this event will  ensure you are all ready to go for the 2013 – 2014 membership year.

 

We thought it would be great for you to hear from some GSNI volunteers about the benefits of attending a Girl Scout volunteer training session.

Does your girl love the spotlight? Does your girl want to be a star? If so, attend a Summer Casting Call with her to learn about the Girl Scout Emissary Network!

 

The Emissary Network consists of Girl Scout Daisies, Brownies, Juniors, Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors trained in public speaking and poise. Emissaries are on call to represent GSNI in the media and at community networking events. New opportunities for the 2013-2014 membership year include girl bloggers, social media networkers (girls 13+), and event photographers!

GSNI Troop 5302 completed their Bronze Award with their Take Action Project: Friendship Inside Out! Keep the Chain Reaction Going. Troop Leader, Jenna Leverton, describes their project:

 

"Many of the girls in this troop have been a victim of bullying, so they decided to do something about it! They started with a chain of kindness at school. They made posters to put in every classroom. When someone witnessed a random act of kindness, they would take a slip of paper from the poster, write down what they saw and return it to the poster. The girls then collected the slips of paper weekly and made them into a chain link that was displayed in the school. Their peers really took to the idea and as of today there have been 742 random acts of kindness witnessed!

Girl safety is our top priority, especially when it comes to inclement weather at camp. During these recent storms, girls have been kept inside or moved to a lower level of a camp building, depending on the issued warnings. GSNI follows specific safety protocols designed to keep each camper and staff member safe and secure for the duration of the camping season. In the event of a severe storm, please remain calm if camp staff doesn't immediately answer or return phone calls, as their first responsibility is the safety of the girls. Staff will return phone calls or e-mails at the earliest possible opportunity.
