GSUSA, in partnership with WAGGGS and Dove, recently launched Free Being Me, a global leadership initiative. Combined with It's Your Story—Tell It! Journey materials, the Free Being Me curriculum helps girls define beauty for themselves and boost their self-confidence in the process. Girls are invited to create PSA videos that show what they think beauty is and that celebrate the qualities that make them unique!
This summer, GSUSA representatives visited GSNI’s “My Best Elf Self” camp at Baker Community Center in St. Charles to see how girls enjoyed using Healthy Habits, a component of the It’s Your Planet—Love It! Journey. The cameras were rolling as girls worked on WOW! Wonders of Water and learned about staying healthy throughout their lives.
This past Monday, Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) National President, Connie L. Lindsay and GSUSA CEO Anna Maria Chávez attended the Presidential Inauguration in Washington D.C. This was the first time in 30 years members of GSUSA have been officially invited to this historic event. We wanted to share with you, Anna Maria Chávez’s reflections on what she witnessed that day.
