Kappa Delta Promotes Confidence in Girls of All Ages

The Northwest Indiana Times reports that Girl Scout Brownies from Crown Point and their parents quickly learned there is more to sororities than the stereotype when Valparaiso University's Kappa Delta sorority, Zeta Psi chapter, sponsored a Girl Scout try-it badge workshop recently at the Purdue University Academic Learning Center.

The women of Kappa Delta helped the Brownies learn about sewing, weaving, and mask making. Other activities included face painting, making friendship bracelets and decorating T-shirts.
Kappa Delta sisters shared stories about their travels abroad and taught the Girl Scouts international games. All of this fun helped the Brownies earn three badges and their Thinking Day patch.

One of Kappa Delta's national philanthropies is working with the Girl Scouts of the U.S.A. The sorority creates a one-of-a-kind partnership with Girl Scouts in which Kappa Delta sisters are able to influence the lives of girls across the country in a positive way. Although their main focus is to promote confidence in girls of all ages, they also show girls that women can develop many skills, travel to many places, and can become whatever they dream.
