GET THE SCOOP By: Joyce S., Lime Green Giraffe Co-Copy Editor + Co-Editorial Team Lead

Hey

Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta! There’s only one place that I know of where you can find a gaggle of young, inspired and admirably unique minds dedicated to growing both their characters and their passion for language. No, this isn’t wishful thinking or even an exaggeration; it’s just a typical Lime Green Giraffe (LGG) meeting. Although our name may sound odd, it is wonderfully one-of-akind and girl-created, like the group itself. After spending all of my middle school and high school years with LGG, I can truly say without a doubt, that our meetings are unlike anything else. On paper, our agenda sounds relatively normal. We usually begin with an icebreaker, then a workshop, then a game and sometimes snacks (my personal favorite), but the magic truly begins when we are asked to create. Whether it’s an individual activity or a large group game, we never fail to awe one another with our thoughts and ideas, and every time we collaborate, imagination floats through the room, so much, that you can almost feel it!

“The Lime Green Giraffe has not only provided me with more opportunities to write, it has allowed me to develop my leadership skills and expanded my awareness of the world.” Lillabeth B., Lime Green Giraffe Co-Copy Editor + Co-Editorial Team Lead

One of the reasons why LGG has thrived is that we as girls understand the importance of what we do and therefore we are not afraid to lead. Well, I won’t say we are all unafraid. I can still remember being petrified when asked to direct my very first photo for our photoshoot, but with the endless amount of support I received I

was able to conquer that photoshoot and take advantage of so many other opportunities. Unlike other groups, LGG thrives on being girl-led, and thanks to our amazing adult volunteers, each girl on staff has the chance to lead and create as she grows into the intelligent young woman she was meant to be.

The Older Girl Experience:

Why Girl Scouts MATTERS Through exciting hands-on learning in STEM, the outdoors, and entrepreneurship, Girl Scouts empowers girls to develop courage, confidence, and character to make the world a better place. The Girl Scout effect is proven: in the U.S., 90 percent of female astronauts, 80 percent of female tech leaders, 75 percent of current senators, and 50 percent of female business owners are Girl Scout alumnae. Whether participating in a troop or as a Juliette, girls can customize their Girl Scout experience to build the perfect high school resume, setting themselves above their peers as thoughtful and loyal leaders. Take a look at some of our future leaders and make a plan for your Girl Scout future! My participation in the Miss Media program has been invaluable. I am provided with endless opportunities to develop the necessary skills of building my brand and being able to project myself confidently though speeches. Girls Scouts has equipped me with the skills to aid me in making a substantial difference, not only in my community but on a global level.

JORRYN B.

My favorite thing about being an older Girl Scout is being part of older girl activities, like the Girl Training Committee. Older Girl Scouts are less common, and it means a lot to see an older girl stick with scouting.

Coding Unplugged! DIY T-Shirt Weaving Activity Using Coding Style Instructions

What is coding? Coding and programming are growing in popularity. But what exactly is coding and programming? How can we apply these concepts to our everyday lives? Coding is a set of instructions (a language) given to a computer in order for it to function in the way that you want.

Coding vs. Programming Think of coding like a chapter in a book. Programming is the whole book. Coding involves writing many lines of code in order to create a software program.

Unleash Her Inner Leader "I originally decided to become a volunteer because there was a gap in our community. My then 6-year-old daughter had just completed her Daisy year at a troop far away from our home, and there were no troops available close by. Two of my friends and I, with no experience, decided to start a troop. After some training and hands-on learning, we understood the mission of Girl Scouts. It has become my passion to ensure that any girl who wants to access the sisterhood, leadership and esteem building resources of Girl Scouts receives it. Our troop, and the subsequent troops in our area, have grown from just 5 girls to over 50! If just one girl soaks up what Girl Scouts offers her and uses it to make the world she touches a better place, then there is hope for tomorrow. I will continue to give my time, talents, and treasure to support this cause." -Anika P, Troop Co-Leader of Senior Troop 00831 You, too, can give more girls access to the sisterhood.

Volunteer with Girl Scouts today! Volunteer.GirlScoutsATL.org As a volunteer, you’ll introduce girls to new experiences and help them unleash their inner G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ to take the lead and change the world. www.girlscoutsatl.org 3

Invest in Girls. Change the World. “It was easy for me to choose to support Girl Scouts because I believe in the mission – building girls of courage, confidence, and character.

Girl Scouts is a place where my girls can dream BIG dreams and work to achieve them.” -Ayana S., Troop #01343 Co-Leader & Service Unit Director

skills

and prepared for a successful future career. Think about it: When employers interview job candidates, they look for similar things. They want:

Someone who can set goals and meet deadlines. Missing a deadline can mean blowing a deal.

#1 Goal Setting

Someone who works well with others. Who wants arguments and complaining in the workplace? Not the boss.

#2 Decision Making

Someone who stays on budget.

#3 Money Management

A business can only stay open if it’s profitable.

Someone who is a go-getter and an innovator. An employee who raises the bar and discovers opportunities for improvement is valuable.

#4 People Skills

Someone who is honest, trustworthy, and reliable.

#5 Business Ethics

This goes without saying—but is always worth the reminder.

Sound like anyone you know? That’s your Girl Scout, using the 5 Skills she learned in the Girl Scout Treats & Keeps Program and Girl Scout Cookie Program.
