STUDY REVEALS BENEFITS OF GIRL SCOUTING
The Girl Scout Research Institute has released Girl Scouting Works: The Alumnae Impact Study. In this study, researchers found that Girl Scout alumnae (women who were Girl Scouts during their youth) are more likely than women who were not Girl Scouts to give back to their communities through volunteerism and support and to get actively involved by voting in elections. Click here to download the study and read more about the positive impacts Girl Scouts has on income level, self-esteem and education.

TECH SAVVY EXHIBIT CELEBRATES NEW CENTURY OF GIRL SCOUTING
The Girl Scout STEM Program has infiltrated the centennial celebration at the Texas State Fair! The exhibit features a special smartphone app that leads participants in a technologically-driven scavenger hunt, electronic camp fires, and more.

TOGETHERTHERE - HAVE YOU SIGNED THE PLEDGE?
A girl looks at the world around her; the country's leaders and captains of industry; at TV, movie, sports, and pop stars; at fashion magazines — what do her possibilities look like? Who are her role models? How can she be it, if she can't see it? It's time we made changes that support her path to success. Together, we can get her there. Go to www.ToGetHerThere.org for more information and to sign the pledge.
