G.I.R.L. 2017 is just around the corner!

Shout out to all Girl Scouts—G.I.R.L. 2017 is coming soon! Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) and the girl planning team, G-Team, have been working hard to ensure G.I.R.L. 2017 is a success for everyone. We recently met at Girl Scout national headquarters to discuss numerous convention details and events. We are excited to say there will be girl parties as well programs with speakers from all kinds of fields. We are also planning a Hall of Experiences with the chance to explore entrepreneurship, the outdoors, life skills, and global travel. The GSUSA team is working hard every day on all of this and more to guarantee an outstanding experience for every girl at G.I.R.L. 2017.

One amazing opportunity the G-Team had recently was to meet Sylvia Acevedo, GSUSA’s CEO. We discussed many topics, including Convention and the personal experiences that led her to where she is today. She said, “Girl Scouts is not a membership, it is experiencing the outcome of life-changing opportunities.” That is exactly what G.I.R.L. 2017 is here to do for girls all across the country.

Girl Scouts is an organization that changes lives across the world, and the programs, speakers, and exhibitors at this convention will help push that change beyond troops and communities. All of our teams have been arranging some great activities and spaces for girls of every age to enjoy in October. There will be breakout sessions for older girls and adults along with activities and events for the younger girls. These events could be anything from ones that build girl confidence and strength to DIY projects. Our goal is to have something of interest to each and every girl.

Come enjoy a fun, informative, unforgettable few days with fellow girls who have similar goals as you. It is time to get excited! Register now—G.I.R.L. 2017 is just around the corner!
