Girls Scouts Offers Virtual Introduction to Programs

The Giving Coast

SRQ DAILY FRIDAY WEEKEND EDITION FRIDAY SEP 11, 2020

As families grapple with the uncertainy surrounding the new school year, the local Girl Scout council is reassuring parents that Girl Scouting is alive and well, with fun, learning and safety in mind. To introduce girls and their families to their programs, Girl Scouts of Gulfcoast Florida is offering dozens of free virtual programs now through December. Programs include Experience Girl Scouts, an interactive series featuring fun and educational activities for girls in grades K-5; an imaginative Animal Dance Party and hands-on Robot Bulding Party for girls in grades K-3; virtual series exploring a variety of topics for girls in grades K-1, 2-3, and 4-5; and two series just for Kindergartners, Make New Friends and Daisy Launch.

Parents and caregivers are also invited to partricipate in one of the Discover Girl Scouts virtual open houses to learn more about the powerful impact of Girl Scouting. Girl Scouts is open to all girls in grades K-12, with program scholarships available to those in need. For the safety of their members, volunteers and staff, the council suspended in-person acivities in March, quickly pivoting to online program alterantives. Council officials recently announced that in-person troop meetings and programs have resumed, following recommended social distancing and safety guidelines from the CDC and Girl Scouts of the USA.

To register or learn about free virtual programs, call 800-232-4475.
