Three (Major) Reasons for Alums to Get Excited About G.I.R.L. 2020!


The countdown is on for the biggest girl-led event in the world: G.I.R.L. 2020! The most epic celebration in Girl Scouting will be held from October 21–23, 2020, in Orlando, Florida, G.I.R.L. 2020 is where girls and women from around the globe will join forces to find inspiration and strength in one another and hone the tools they’ll use to empower themselves now and for the rest of their lives.

There are SO many reasons to get excited about G.I.R.L. 2020, especially if you’re a Girl Scout alum! Here are just a few reasons alums will want to start packing their bags.

1. Tap into a global network. 
Celebrating the power of girls to change the world translates no matter where you are! Just one of the (many!) things you won’t want to miss is the first-ever Global Roundtable, where girls and young women from around the world will convene and discuss the future of the global Girl Guide & Girl Scout Movement and how to strengthen connections among girl-only organizations. You’ll discover how you can help power girl-led movements at home and around the world.

2. Check out the lifetime membership lounge.
After hearing from our dynamic headliners, attending inspiring breakout sessions on leadership, or visiting the Girl Scout Network booth at the G.I.R.L. EXPO, take a breather at the dedicated lifetime membership lounge. You’ll have the opportunity to network with fellow go-getters and innovators who are making a positive impact. Because making new friends is just what Girl Scouts and alums do!

Not a lifetime member yet? Stay tuned for can’t-miss alum programming at G.I.R.L. 2020 and look for even more opportunities to connect with your Girl Scout sisters.

3. Discover the coolest experiences in Girl Scouting. 
There’s something for everyone in the G.I.R.L. EXPO: Hall of Experiences! The Hall of Experiences is 100,000 square feet of all the cool things Girl Scouts are doing now. From hands-on activities focused on science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) to interactive exhibits that build essential outdoor skills, you’ll get a glimpse of how today’s girls build the skills they’ll need to succeed throughout their lives.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Girl Scout event without giving back. At G.I.R.L. 2017, convention attendees packed more than 20,000 meals for people in need. You might make an impact just by attending G.I.R.L. 2020!
