The Girl Scout New Year is almost here, and those celebrating on October 1 understand how exciting this next year is going to be. Not only do we have our Nation's Best Cookie Seller title to maintain, but this next year marks the 100th Anniversary of the Girl Scouts Gold Award. But if you've never been a Girl Scout and have no idea what we're talking about, well, get excited because here's the top five reasons to join Girl Scouts this year:
Make new friends
Being a Girl Scout is not just a way to have fun, but a way to have fun together! Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council has over 78,000 girl and adult members, and nationwide Girl Scouts of the U.S.A. is 2.8 million members strong. Connect with girls in your community who share your same passions. Serve together, learn together, go to camp together, and as the years pass you can grow and succeed together.
Get better grades
Most Girl Scouts involved in a 2012 study were shown to be academically successful! We're sure you're a champ in the classroom, but we can help boost you from B's to steady A's, because our stellar community of girls and helpful leaders will inspire you to do better. Destiny, a 12 year old Girl Scout from our state of Texas said, "I have been a Girl Scout since I was 5 (a Daisy), and I would not be where I am today. I think I would do well in school, and I don't think I would get along with others as well as I do."
