Local Girl Scouts receive $1,700 grant from United Way of Ogle County
Ogle County – Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois received a generous $1,700 grant from United Way of Ogle County on July 1.
Funds from this grant will be used to support the organization’s Building Tomorrow program which provides benefits of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience to low-income and underserved girls, ages 5 to 18, in Ogle County.
The Girl Scout Leadership Experience develops future female leadership through informal and experiential education, social emotional learning, and outcomes-based activities. The goal is girls’ success in an informal setting, like a Girl Scout activity, which leads to greater confidence in the formal classroom setting.
GSNI would like to thank United Way of Ogle County for speaking up on behalf of girls, for joining in the Girl Scout Mission where girls have a space all their own, where their interests, their experience, and their leadership — today and tomorrow — is the top priority. We’re Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois
We believe every girl can change the world. With us, Girl Scouts develop the independence and confidence to guide their own lives and build a better world. We put girls in the driver’s seat and encourage them to customize their own experience. With programs focused on the outdoors, career and interest exploration, travel and global community, and practical life skills, in addition to community service projects, every girl can unlock her full potential and be amazing.
