A meeting to organize new Girl Scout troops is scheduled at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, January 29 at North Lake Middle School in the cafeteria, located at 2202 123rd Ave. NE.
New troops, volunteers and girls will join over 700 girls in South Snohomish County now actively participating in local Girl Scout activities. Girls can start Girl Scouting anytime during the year to accommodate the varying schedules of busy girls and their families.
A new troop needs a minimum of five girls and two adult volunteers. Adult volunteers don’t need any previous Girl Scout experience and don’t need to be a parent. All adult volunteers are supported with training and guidance to support their role with Girl Scouts.
Each Girl Scout designs fun and challenging activities that empower her to discover her world and herself, connect with others, and take action to make the world a better place.
They get the fun, positive challenges they need to try out leadership roles in an encouraging environment and make decisions that help them learn and grow.
Walk-ins are welcome but a reply is helpful to the meeting organizer.
