Study shows today’s youth are optimistic realists In early December, the Girl Scout Research Institute released a study focusing on today's youth, what they value and how they make decisions. The results were based on responses from more than 3,000 boys and girls in 3rd to 12th grade across the country. Many of the results, especially those comparing the beliefs of today's teens to those 20 years ago, have been extensively reported in various newspapers and on our website. Some information uncovered in the survey hasn't been as extensively shared; we thought it would provide you with a unique insight into the minds of your children. When asked if there are more opportunities for young people in America today than there were for their parents, 65 percent of girls and 57 percent of boys said yes. This optimism is encouraging, but could be better; 20 years ago the percentages were 72 percent and 62 percent, respectively.

Susan H. McClure

Four out of every ten teens and tweens surveyed think it is harder for them growing up than it was for their parents. This is down from 50% who thought the same in 1989. When broken down along ethnic lines, 38 percent of Hispanic youth; 35 percent of Black youth, and 26 percent of Caucasian youth think it is easier for them growing up today than it was for their parents. Only 21 percent of today's teens and tweens say making a lot of money is the most important reason to choose a future job. This is down from 30 percent 20 years ago. Only 17 percent of girls say money should be a factor in choosing a job.

JoAnn McCann

While today’s children are surrounded by celebrity, persuing it isn’t a top priority. Only five percent say fame is a personal goal, approximately the same as 20 years ago. Half of those surveyed said celebrity status was of little or no concern. In reviewing the survey, we're pleased to say that today's youth are optimistic realists. They are hopeful about what lies ahead, but understand challenges will exist. They are worried about their futures, good grades and obeying authority figures, but they're also socially confident and don't feel a need to conform to peer behavior. While GSRI surveyed a cross section of teens and tweens, not just Girl Scouts, the results of this survey show the programs we provide offer girls the opportunities they're seeking to be successful adults. Thank you for allowing us to make a difference. Your daughters will thank you for a lifetime.

hen it comes to robots, some of the best minds are Girl Scouts. The Red Cedar Robotics Team placed second out of 12 teams during a FIRST Lego League competition in December. Their ranking includes a first place finish in the Robotic Design category. They were the only all-girl team in the competition. The girls now advance to the championship tournament, which takes place Jan. 30 at the University of Delaware. “This is important to me because one of my ambitions is to become an engineer and this is a pretty good start,” said 10-year-old Hannah Morgan, a Junior Girl Scout. The girls’ parents are just as excited. “They were only five points from the top,” declared CY Wong-Ramsay, whose 11-year old daughter, Kristin, is on the robotics team. “It’s refreshing to see girls use their imagination and creativity in areas of technology.” Each Lego League challenge has a specific theme. This year, it focused on transportation. Their assignment was to create an innovative way to make one of those travel modes more efficient. “FIRST gives girls the chance to learn hands-on and come up with creative solutions,” said Hannah’s father Rich Morgan, a high school science teacher and Girl Scout volunteer who works with the team. During the FIRST competition, girls created robots with sensors that responded to light and touch. They then programmed the robots to retreive items, move items from one location to another or assist in completing a task, such as pushing a button or turning a gear. “We’re finding that if you give kids a bit of technology they will come up with creative solutions that adults would never have thought of,” Morgan

“As the mom of only daughters, it was fun to hear other teams say in disbelief, ‘They’re an all-girl team and they beat us?’” – Catherine Morgan

Brielle Anwander, Rebecca Vernachio, and Kayla Meyer from the Red Cedar Robotics Team compete at the FIRST Lego League competition.

Young Engineers Red Cedar girls advance to robotics championship added. “I am proud of them and their hard work and perseverance.” The Red Cedar Robotics Team is one of two teams supported by the Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore. “I think science is terribly important because it’s our future,” said Jessie Blair, a retired physics teacher and volunteer who coaches the Monmouth County Robotics Team. “Working with robots is nice because girls don’t get to do that in school.” The combination of teamwork and science is an ideal learning opportunity because it turns science into a fun, social activity, said Kristina Mavica, the mother of Gianna, a 9-year-old member of

the Monmouth County team. “It’s a complete experience incorporating social skills and academics.” While the education is important, winning is also its own reward. “As the mom of only daughters, it was fun to hear other teams say in disbelief, ‘They’re an all-girl team and they beat us,’” said Catherine Morgan, Hannah’s mother. “Girls can reach any goal they set. Being involved with a Girl Scouts’ robotics team gives them the tools and support they need to achieve that success.” For more information about either Girl Scout robotics team, call (800) 785-2090, ext. 125.

All Points Bulletin The Girl Scouts Want You!

Board members like Wendy Galloway of the New Jersey State Police work closely with Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore CEO Susan H. McClure throughout the year, including events like the annual Gold award presentation.

E

very day, Girl Scout volunteers in Monmouth and Ocean counties make a difference in girls' lives by leading programs, coordinating product sales and providing training. The most unsung volunteers, however, are those who typically don't work directly with girls, but still affect the lives of every Girl Scout with their actions.

These volunteers are the council's board of directors. Members of the board come from all parts of the community and represent some of Monmouth and Ocean counties top businesses, including vice presidents from Ocean County College, CentraState Healthcare System, PNC Bank and New Jersey Natural Gas. The board also features members with vested personal

interest in providing leadership opportunities for girls, including teachers, school administrators and involved parents. "One of the reasons our board is so strong compared to other Girl Scout councils across the country is the amazing abilities we've brought together into one group," said Susan H. McClure, chief executive officer. "Every board member has a unique perspective, but they're passionately dedicated to providing the best opportunities possible for our girls." The Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore will continue to evolve to meet the needs of girls in the community. With realignment in the rear-view mirror, the council turns its focus to a comprehensive strategic learning initiative, and is already preparing for Girl Scouts nationwide celebrate the organization's 100th anniversary with is only two years away. "This is an amazing time to be involved with the Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore," said JoAnn McCann, board president. "You may think we've going through a lot of changes over the past several years, but that's nothing compared to the improvements I see us making in the years to come." The council is looking for people like you to maintain this positive momentum. New board members are needed to ensure new, fresh voices are always heard. If you'd like to help girls do great things, the place to do it is with the Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore. If you're interested in being considered for board membership, contact Doris Innes, at (800) 785-2090, ext. 147 or email dinnes@girlscoutsjs.org.


Up Close and Personal

Horse club offers girls equestrian opportunities

H

orses captivate girls, especially those who find their elegance and gentle natures irresistible. Eight-year-old Juliette Girl Scout Erin Drake is no exception. “Horses are wonderful, they love you no matter how good or bad you ride,” said the Jackson girl. Erin lives on a horse farm with six horses and four ponies, including her own, named Lollipop. She loves all the horses, but until this year was afraid to ride. She became involved with the Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore’s Horse Club and now has the courage to saddle up with the animals she loves. “Being more involved with other children who love horses helped her overcome her fear of riding,” explained her mother, Bonnie Drake. Members of the Girl Scouts’ Horse Club do more than just ride horses, they’re actively involved with their care at the onsite equestrian facility located at the Girl Scouts’ Monmouth Service Center in Farmingdale.

“Erin helps with everything from feeding, turnout, cleaning stalls and grooming,” Bonnie added. “She even helps a local rescue raise awareness for horses that are neglected and helps teach children with special needs how to ride at the Rain Dancer Therapeutic Riding Center.” Every Horse Club member has an opportunity to become involved like Erin. “Girls gain a sense of responsibility and self-worth by working with horses,” said Michelle Masarik, outdoor program specialist and Horse Club organizer. “It is almost hard to explain the feeling of competency and empowerment a girl can get by working with and riding horses.” Every year, hundreds of Girl Scouts have the opportunity to ride and care for horses through the Horse Club and equestrian opportunities at Amity Acres Day Camp and Sacajawea Day Camp. Those with a more casual interest can also become involved through the council’s annual horse expo.

“A relationship with a horse is an almost instinctual partnership, based on trust, loyalty and love” continued Masarik. “Children enhance these skills through interaction with the horses. Caring and working with these large and wonderful animals spills into all aspects of a girl’s life, giving her a glimpse of the person she can be.” The Girl Scouts’ Horse Club meets monthly and is open to girls of all ages and experience levels. Meetings can include discussions, trips, guest speakers and hands-on demonstrations. Girl members play a significant role in planning future meetings. For more information, call Michelle Masarik at (800) 7852090, ext. 181. Above Left: Erin Drake does more than ride horse through her connection with the Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore Horse Club. She also helps care for them. Above Right: Drake enjoys spending time with horses thanks to the Girl Scouts’ Horse Club.

Community Giving

Making a difference. One troop at a time.

H

undreds of Girl Scouts gave back to their communities during the holiday season, making the world a better place for many in Monmouth and Ocean counties. In Brick, Daisy Troop 1830 filled 13 Thanksgiving food baskets and donated them to the hungry in their neighborhood. “The girls learned how easy it is to help families in need,” said Christine Olivieri, leader of the first grade troop. “We explained to them that you never know who needs help. It could be their friend sitting right next to them.” Throughout the area, girls created new and exciting ways to collect food

for the hungry. Howell Cadette Troop 1509’s organized a “Bowling for Soup” event at Howell Lanes as part of their Silver Award project, collecting more than 600 canned goods for the Howell Emergency Food Pantry. “The Silver Award is nice, but we’re making a difference in our community, and that’s what’s important,” said Sarah Hartzell, a freshman at Howell High School. In Point Pleasant, girls collected 131 pairs of pajamas and

117 books for children less fortunate than themselves. “It made me feel happy and very, very helpful because I made someone feel better and more comfortable,” said six-year-old Soncera Ball from Pt. Pleasant Daisy Troop 51.

Above: Howell Cadette Troop 1590 collected more than 600 canned goods for the Howell Emergency Food Pantry. Right: Brick Brownie Troop 1842 bought holiday gifts for those in need using spare change they collected and a $50 gift card donated by Target. They and other area troops joined together to donate 13 large bags full of toys, clothing and books to Dottie’s House, Brick, and the Children Home Society, Toms River.

The girls had a great time visiting the Ford Theater, the monuments, memorials, museums and took a tour of the Capitol Building. One of the highlights was when President Obama drove up in front of the White House. Even though they missed the president the girls got to see the First Lady walking their dog!

954 shared their love of the outdoors and camping by hosting a skills workshop weekend for younger girls and miles. They each ran a separate program that taught different outdoor skills to about 70 boys and girls ages 5 ng, outdoor cooking, team building, hiking, knots, packing and proper clothing, first aid, eco art and scouting first sleepover at Camp Sacajawea in November.

Bayshore Service Unit held a pajama party to benefit the Pajama Program.

Shore Brownie Troop 1517 had a busy fall, with a visit from Sister Carol McKenthum, a teacher at St. Catharine’s in Spring Lake. She spoke about her missionary work in Uganda.

When you buy Girl Scout Cookies girls decide where the money goes. They have big hearts and big imaginations. One day, just you wait, our first female president will reminisce about the time she visited Washington and stood inside the Lincoln Memorial with her Girl Scout troop. The cookies you buy could be the ones that inspire a president. Girl Scout Cookies can help bring out the confidence in a girl. It’s no easy thing to ask a stranger to buy something. You have to speak up, look them in the eye, believe in what you’re doing. Believe in yourself. No university has produced as many female business owners as the Girl Scout Cookie program. With every season of Girl Scout Cookies, another generation of girls learns to set goals, make a plan and manage money. As women, they’ll need to know these things, whether their goal is to start a business, or a family. Everyone likes cookies. And there are a lot of cookies that taste good. These are cookies that do good.
