On Jan. 10, Girl Scouts of Western New York (GSWNY) will hold the Girl Scout Join-a-thon from 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. and take on-the-spot registrations over the phone. This event will utilize eight different radio stations throughout GSWNY’s nine county regional service area to direct listeners to call 1.888.837.6410 and register for Girl Scouts.
Girl Scouts offers all-girl leadership development experience for girls in the world where their specific needs can be met. Girls Scouts develop a strong sense of self, display positive values, seek challenges, and solve problems in their communities. From building robots, rock climbing at camp, running a cookie business, to service projects at local food banks and animal shelters, the adventures for a girl to explore her leadership potential are endless in Girl Scouts.
Adults who register to become volunteers and or register their girls will win Girl Scout goodies when they call 1.888.837.6410 during the Girl Scout Join-a-thon. Adults must be 18 years of age or older to volunteer and girls must be in grades k-12 to join. In addition, Girl Scouts is sending out a special invite for girls in grades k-1 to join as Daisy Girl Scouts.
At Girl Scouts, girls get to lead their own adventure and team up with other girls in an all-girl environment to choose the exciting, hands-on activities that interest them most in important skill areas like science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), outdoors, life skills, and entrepreneurship. While a girl may be exposed to these subjects at school and in other places, at Girl Scouts, she will experience them in a unique way that puts her on a path to a lifetime of leadership, adventure, and success
This is a one day event and those interested in joining as an adult volunteer or girl member can still register after; however, the special Girl Scout goodie prizes won’t be available. For more information call 1.888.837.6410 or visit gswny.org to join!
