**Applications are still being accepted!**
This special interest group will be comprised of Girl Scouts in 9th-12th grade who are members in the Girl Scouts of NE Kansas & NW Missouri council who are passionate about making a difference in world. This girl-led group will research issues, create action plans, engage the public sector, and learn how to use their voice to speak truth to power. They will work on multiple civic initiatives, with a variety of elected officials and organizations. They will also gain firsthand experience with the change process and build relationships with other change makers. The group will meet in-person and virtually on a regular basis as determined by the group and the needs they identify. Due to the large geographical area of our council, accommodations will be made for in-person meetings when possible.
This is a one-year commitment, August 2019 – July 2020.
August 14, 6-8 PM: First Meeting
This is an in-person meeting. It will also be offered virtually for those outside the KC metro area.
August 25, 2-4 PM: Second Meeting
Lawrence Public Library
Meeting with the League of Kansas Municipalities to discuss our first initiative, supporting their efforts to educate youth about the 2020 Census and encourage increased participation in the Census.
2: Women in Law
A day with the UMKC Law Program. Girl Scouts will meet and interact with attorneys, judges, professors, and other legal professionals.
Additional meeting dates, events, and other time commitments will be discussed and decided on by the group as the year unfolds.
This group will require a significant time commitment, at least a few hours every week and sometimes more. Please consider if this is a commitment you are willing and able to make.
