Girl Scout Mission

The Girl Scout Law

I will do my best to be honest and fair, friendly and helpful, considerate and caring, courageous and strong, and responsible for what I say and do, and to respect myself and others, respect authority, use resources wisely, make the world a better place, and be a sister to every Girl Scout.


Greetings! The State of Girls: Unfinished Business is an innovative report from the Girl Scout Research Institute that identifies key issues and trends affecting girls’ healthy development in today’s world. Statistic indicators focused on issues such as the health, safety, and educational achievement of girls, as well as demographic trends. The results are reassuring, but we have more work to do to encourage all girls to discover their values, interests, and skills; connect with others, and take action to create sustainable solutions to issues important to them. Together we can get her there by raising awareness and educating the public about the state of girls today, funding programs and continuing research on issues impacting girls. Girl Scouts of Central Indiana is dedicated to making certain that all girls reach their full potential through quality programming that will build girls of courage, confidence, and character. To reach out to all girls to instill confidence, leadership skills, and a collaborative spirit, we have integrated fun, imagination, and the joy of anticipation into everything we do. Our recruitment effort focuses on that “canhardly-sleep-because-you’re-waiting-for-the-nextday” feeling. Our membership recruitment campaign is designed to show girls and adults that, with us, they’ll always have something to be excited about. Share the Girl Scout message with a friend, co-worker, classmate or family member and make a difference in their lives! Thank you for your time and enthusiasm for Girl Scouts. Enjoy browsing our 2014 spring Program and Adult Learning Guide, and visit girlscoutsindiana.org to register for program activities and events. It has never been easier to get girls involved in Girl Scouts. Warmest regards,

Deborah Hearn Smith Chief Executive Officer

2013 Girl Scout Cookie Program

A cookie can do a world of good! Much more than a way to raise money, the Girl Scout Cookie Program is a hands-on leadership and entrepreneurial program. Here are a few examples of how participating in the cookie program teaches Girl Scouts skills that will help them grow into leaders in their own lives, leaders in business and leaders in the world: 1. Goal Setting Your Girl Scout sets cookie sales goals individually and with her team, creates a plan to reach them, and develops cooperation and team building skills all along the way! 2. Decision-Making Your Girl Scout helps decide how her team will spend their cookie money, furthering her critical thinking and problem solving skills that will help her in many aspects of her life. 3. Money Management Your Girl Scout takes cookie orders, handles customers’ money and gains valuable and practical life skills around financial literacy. 4. People Skills Your Girl Scout learns how to talk to, listen to and work with all kinds of people while selling cookies. These experiences help her develop healthy relationship and conflict resolution skills she can use throughout her life. 5. Business Ethics Your Girl Scout is honest and responsible at every step of the Girl Scout Cookie Program. Her business ethics here reinforce the positive values she is developing as a Girl Scout.

Outdoor Cooking

This session will help volunteers prepare for an overnight experience in a cabin, building or tent. In addition to these skills, learn safe and appropriate fire building skills, discuss menus and food preparation, tying knots, and knife safety.

Bring a fire scarf and your taste buds to this one! Outdoor cooking isn’t difficult, but it helps to have some practice. You will learn the practice of safe fire-building and cook entrees, sides and snacks using several different techniques. Some recipes will be classics for Dutch ovens and pie-irons, and some may be creative, like muffins in orange cups. We’ll have a chance to sample everything we cook, so let us know of any dietary restrictions or allergies when you register.

If available, bring a pocket knife, sit-upon, and the book Outdoor Education in Girl Scouting. Who should attend: Registered adults who want to plan an overnight outdoor experience with their girls in cabins or in tents. Fee: $10 for meals

Geocaching is one of the hottest new high-tech, family-friendly sports. Use a handheld GPS unit to find secret boxes other people have hidden. Find it, sign the book, maybe trade a few SWAPS, and then register your find online. Letterboxing is an older version of geocaching, using traditional compasses and fancier puzzles, and trading images with artfully carved rubber stamps. Bring a compass and/or a GPS unit, if you have one. Car navigation systems don’t work too well for this. Dress to be outdoors and do a bit of hiking.

Safety and Girl Scouts

Every adult in Girl Scouting is responsible for the physical and emotional safety of girls. This is demonstrated by following the 12 Girl Scout Safety Guidelines on the next page at all times and by following the Girl Scout Safety Activity Checkpoints guidelines when engaging in activities with girls. These resources can be found on our website.

Fee: None Time: Average 1 hour Session A: Jan 11 �10:30-11:30 a.m. Girl Scout Service Center at Indianapolis 2611 Waterfront Pkwy E Dr, Ste 325, Indianapolis

Girl Scout Safety Guidelines 1. Follow the Safety Activity Checkpoints. Instructions for staying safe while participating in activities are detailed in the Safety Activity Checkpoints. Read the checkpoints, follow them, and share them with other volunteers, parents, and girls (as grade-level appropriate) before engaging in activities with girls. These are found at girlscoutsindiana.org in the volunteer section of our website. 2. Arrange for proper adult supervision of girls. Your group must have at least two unrelated, approved adult volunteers present at all times, plus additional adult volunteers as necessary, depending on the size of the group and the ages and abilities of girls. Adult volunteers must be at least 18 years old and must be screened by the council before volunteering. One lead volunteer in every group must be female. 3. Get parent/guardian permission. When an activity takes place that is outside the normal time and place, advise each parent/guardian of the details of the activity and obtain permission for girls to participate. 4. Report abuse. Sexual advances, improper touching, and sexual activity of any kind with girl members are forbidden. Physical, verbal, and emotional abuse of girls is also forbidden. Report any suspected abuse or neglect to the Indiana Child Abuse and Neglect Hotline at 800.800.5556, and contact Meg Booth, Director of Volunteer Services, at 317.924.6839 to alert the council that you have made the call. Under Indiana law, each citizen of Indiana is considered a “mandated reporter” and State law requires the Department of Child Services to protect the identity of the reporter. 5. Be prepared for emergencies. Work with girls and other adults to establish and practice procedures for emergencies related to weather, fire, lost girls/adults, and site security. Always keep handy a well-stocked firstaid kit, girl health histories, and contact information for girls’ families. 6. Travel safely. When transporting girls to planned Girl Scout field trips and other activities that are outside the normal time and place, every driver must be an approved adult volunteer and have a good driving record, a valid license, and a registered/insured vehicle. Insist that everyone is in a legal seat and wears her seat belt at all times, and adhere to state laws regarding booster seats and requirements for children in rear seats. 7. Ensure safe overnight outings. Prepare girls to be away from home by involving them in planning, so they know what to expect. Avoid having men sleep in the same space as girls and women. During family or parentdaughter overnights, one family unit may sleep in the same sleeping quarters in program areas. When parents are staffing events, daughters should remain in quarters with other girls rather than in staff areas. 8. Role-model the right behavior. Never use illegal drugs. Don’t consume alcohol, smoke, or use foul language in the presence of girls. Do not carry ammunition or firearms in the presence of girls unless given special permission by Girl Scouts of Central Indiana council for group marksmanship activities. 9. Create an emotionally safe space. Adults are responsible for making Girl Scouting a place where girls are as safe emotionally as they are physically. Protect the emotional safety of girls by creating a team agreement and coaching girls to honor it. Agreements typically encourage behaviors like respecting a diversity of feelings and opinions; resolving conflicts constructively; and avoiding physical and verbal bullying, clique behavior, and discrimination. 10. Ensure that no girl is treated differently. Girl Scouts welcome all members, regardless of race, ethnicity, background, disability, family structure, religious beliefs, and socioeconomic status. When scheduling, helping plan, and carrying out activities, carefully consider the needs of all girls involved, including school schedules, family needs, financial constraints, religious holidays, and the accessibility of appropriate transportation and meeting places. 11. Promote online safety. Instruct girls never to put their full names or contact information online, engage in virtual conversation with strangers, or arrange in-person meetings with online contacts. On group websites, publish girls’ first names only and never divulge their contact information. Teach girls the Girl Scout Online Safety Pledge (at www.girlscouts.org/help/Internet_safety_pledge.asp) and have them commit to it. 12. Keep girls safe during money-earning. Girl Scout cookies and other council-sponsored product sales are an integral part of the program. During Girl Scout Product Programs, you are responsible for the safety of girls, money, and products. In addition, a wide variety of organizations, causes, and fundraisers may appeal to Girl Scouts to be their labor force. When representing Girl Scouts, girls cannot participate in money-earning activities that represent partisan politics or that are not Girl Scout–approved product sales and efforts.

Safety Activity Checkpoints

Journey books

Safety Activity Checkpoints are in-depth safety guidelines that adult volunteers use for Girl Scout activities, ranging from canoeing to surfing to selling cookies. Girls can also use these checkpoints to ready their group for a girl-led activity. When preparing for any activity with girls, always begin with the Safety Activity Checkpoints written specifically for that particular activity. Each Safety Activity Checkpoint offers information such as where to do the activity, how to include girls with disabilities, where to find basic and specialized gear required for the activity, how to prepare yourselves in advance, and what specific steps to follow on the day of the activity. If Safety Activity Checkpoints do not exist for an activity, check with the council program department as some activities are allowed only with written council pre-approval, only for girls 12, and over and some activities are off-limits completely. Safety Activity Checkpoints can be found on our website.

The impact must benefit the Girl Scout Leadership Experience and address the three leadership keys, Discover, Connect and Take Action. At least one of the five outcomes in each of the leadership keys must be identified.

• “The troop has done many community service projects.” How many projects? What are they? Who have they served? Who benefitted? What need have they met?

Girl Scouts of the USA recognition awarded at the service unit level

• “She ensures that the girls in her troop have a balanced experience in Girl Scouting.” What makes it balanced? What kind of experiences? What new skills have the girls learned?

• “The girls in the troop have benefited from their community service.” How have girls benefited from their service? What skills have they developed? What have they learned?

A nomination form is completed and submitted to the service team recognition coordinator or to Volunteer Services by March 1. Nominations are reviewed by the service team recognition committee and approves or denies the nomination.

Helpful definitions Mission Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.

Volunteer of Excellence This award recognizes volunteers who have contributed outstanding service while partnering directly with girls in any pathway to implement the Girl Scout Leadership Experience through use of the National Program Portfolio or who have contributed outstanding service in support of the council’s mission delivery to girl and adult members.

Vision Girl Scouts strives to be the premier leadership organization for girls and experts on their growth and development. Goals Each local council sets their own goals based on national goals, initiatives, and direction. Each service unit within Girl Scouts of Central Indiana has annual membership girl recruitment goals which are communicated to the service unit manager and/or service team through the membership development manager assigned to the service unit. In addition, the service unit manager and/or service team is responsible for setting other additional goals, for example, planning a specific number of events and activities to recruit a specific number of girls. The membership development manager and/or service unit manager can help you find out the goals.

Tools and tips for writing successful nominations Nomination guidelines

The nomination should be results oriented, measurable and include real impact stories. GSUSA has designed the guidelines and provided examples on how to write nominations that demonstrate measurable impact. It does not need to be difficult; some simple numbers will do. Some basic questions to ask and answer as nominations are written include How many? What? How? Who? Keep the 3 keys to leadership, Discover, Connect, and Take Action in mind. Here is an example:

Mission Delivery Thriving mission delivery grows and sustains membership through volunteer delivery of the GSLE using the national portfolio.

• “Brittany has been a leader for several years.” How many years? What kind of leadership qualities does she bring?

The Girl Scout Leadership Experience-GSLE The three keys to leadership: girls discover themselves and their values; connect with others; and take action to make the world a better place. At Girl Scouts, everything centers around the girl: activities are girl-led, which gives girls the opportunity to learn by doing in a cooperative learning environment.

• ”She has retained girls in her troop.” How many girls has she retained? “Her troop participates in service unit events.” What events specifically? How many events?

The Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting Girls at every grade-level have a Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting. Through fun activities, girls can earn a variety of badges to build the skills and gain the confidence they’ll use to change the world. They can even develop and complete activities to make their own badge. All badges are called National Proficiency Badges and are grouped in the categories: Legacy, Financial Literacy, Cookie Business, Skill-Building, and Make Your Own. Daisies continue to earn Petals, as well as four new Leaves. National Leadership Program through Journeys At the core of the GSLE are national leadership journeys, fun and challenging experiences grouped around a theme and spread over a series of sessions. Each journey has all the important components of the GSLE sewn right in. Leadership journeys ensure that every Girl Scout in every pathway receives a consistent, highquality experience that engages girls in realizing specific leadership benefits. Each journey offers opportunities to enjoy the longstanding traditions of Girl Scouting, from ceremonies and songs to earning awards and related skill badges. So, to guide girls on a great journey, all you need is enthusiasm and a sense of adventure. Skill Building Badge Sets The Skill-Building Badge Activity Sets offer girls the opportunity to earn additional badges throughout their Leadership Journeys. These activities are designed to turn the experiences and inspiration of the Journeys into tangible skills that girls can use throughout their lives.

Informal Adult Recognition Awards Recognition-Do it often and make it meaningful-Get creative! Informal recognitions are day-to-day ways to say “thank you” to volunteers. These sincere expressions of appreciation are based on specific contributions and are given in a timely manner. Informal recognition is powerful and effective, because volunteers feel valued by a personal touch. Informal Ways to Recognize Volunteers • Girl Scout tokens-check the Girl Scout catalogue or shop online on our website at girlscoutsindiana.org. • Celebrate Leader Appreciation Day on April 22 • Certificates • Personal handwritten note cards • Scrapbook • Telephone call • Electronic greeting cards • Flowers • Framed photo or picture collage • Themed recognition (hearts, shamrocks, stars, angels) • Fun awards (bones-wishbone, funny bone, backbone; hats; gems and rocks; hand; puzzle piece) • One minute praise to say thanks
