The coronavirus has school-aged children across the state and country confined to their homes and limiting their activities and social engagement. That is why Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama (GSSA) wants you to know that Girl Scouts is NOT cancelled. GSSA is bringing the exploration, fun and learning of Girl Scouts to your family even when circumstances are holding you back from other activities. After all, Girl Scouts is not somewhere girls go or something they do—it is who they are day in, day out.

Girl Scouts works. It is the best leadership experience for girls in the world for one good reason: it is girl-led. The inclusive, all-female environment of a Girl Scout troop creates a safe space where girls can try new things, develop a range of skills, take on leadership roles and just be themselves.

“As the expert on girls, GSSA is uniquely poised to help girls and their families adapt to our new reality,” said GSSA CEO Karlyn Edmonds. “This year, we will even have the option for girls to join Virtual Troops.”

GSSA is hosting weekly virtual registration sessions via Facebook Live starting Aug. 24 at 6 p.m. through Oct. 15. Parents can tune in and hear more about Girl Scouting, different troop options and how to register. To find a full list of all of the Discover Girl Scouts events, you can visit their Facebook page.

With unparalleled programming proven to unleash girls’ potentials, Girl Scouts is the place for girls. Research shows that girls learn best in an all-girl, girl-led environment where they’re encouraged to try new things, develop a range of skills, take on leadership roles and just have fun being themselves.
