Thank a Girl Scout Leader Today…

…and EVERY day!

The month of April is National Volunteer Month, the week of April 12-18 was 2015’s National Volunteer Week, and today is Girl Scout Leader Day!

Leader-Day-2015-patch

All the women and men across the country and across the world who give their time to selflessly guide and mentor millions of young women, we here at the Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta want to say THANK YOU! All the work that goes into planning and executing weekly meetings, camping weekends, community service events, and ALL the unseen work that you do has not gone unnoticed. You are helping these girls realize their goals and become leaders themselves one day. Did you know that approximately 80 percent of female entrepreneurs were once Girl Scouts? So keep doing what you’re doing- making a HUGE difference in the world!

Check out these vintage photos of some Girl Scout leaders throughout the years:

    Maggie – Timely, as usual. And thanks to you, you special leader of girls, SU, Archives. We applaud you. Loyally, Sue Belden

    The pants suit was one of the best Girl scout uniforms – and wearing the GS uniform where people knew you were a girl scout – definitely not like today’s image — would love to see where the girls and the adults aren’t afraid to show that they are a member of Girl Scouts!!!! and wear the uniform and pins with pride!!!
