Permission Slips at Council-Sponsored Programs According to Volunteer Essentials Safety Activity Check Points: “. . . every time a group meets at a time and location different from the regular group meeting, you must use a permission form—even if the girls are responsible for getting to that location on their own. Permission forms give parents the who, what, when, where, and why, so that they can decide whether their daughter can participate in an event or go on a trip. A signed permission form permits you to include the girl in the activity and also provides you with up-to-date emergency contact information.” When attending a council-sponsored program, each participant is asked to submit a permission slip, which is kept by the council. A copy of this permission slip is sent with the event confirmation; however, if an additional permission slip is needed, the permission slip found on the GSNI website may be used.

•• If the parents are responsible for transporting girls to and from the event, this is the only permission slip that is needed.

•• If the troop is providing transportation, a second permission slip is needed and should be in the car in which the girl is being transported.

Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois (GSNI) 2013-14 Event Registration Information

Unless otherwise noted, registration for events in this booklet begins December 16, 2013. HOW TO REGISTER: Unless otherwise noted, registration for events is open for both troops/groups and individual registration. NOTE: Permission slips will be sent with the confirmation; however, the activity permission slip found on the GSNI website may be used. Council events are conducted by a variety of sources—outside resources, volunteers, and/or council staff. In order to ensure girl/adult ratios are met, we ask the following: •• If registering as an individual, check the program description to determine if adult chaperones are required to accompany girl participants.

•• If registering as a troop/group (even if leaders ask parents to register the girls individually), proper girl/adult ratio must be met.

•• Due to space limitations, we ask that troops meet but do not exceed girl/adult ratios.

In all cases, each girl participant must turn in a completed permission slip signed by their parent/guardian. Check the individual program description to determine if adult chaperones are required to pay. Adult chaperones are required to register regardless of fee. To determine the proper girl/adult ratio, see Volunteer Essentials, Chapter 4: Safety Wise. Volunteer Essentials is available on the GSNI website. Troop registrations will keep all your girls together—all will get in or not get in. If you don’t want any girls left out, troop registration is recommended. Registrations and payment may be: •• Completed online at www.girlscoutsni.org unless otherwise noted •• Mailed to the Elgin Service Center •• Hand delivered to any of GSNI’s service centers during regular business hours. (GSNI is not responsible for forms dropped off when a center is closed.) •• Registrations must be received by the deadline date. NOTE: Registrations are not accepted over the phone and no spots can be held without a paid registration. However you choose to register, you must not register prior to the beginning registration date (December 16, 2013). Registrations postmarked, dropped off, or submitted online prior to the beginning registration date will receive a two-day penalty. (Held for two days after registration opens.) Registrations received after the close of registration will be accepted ONLY at the discretion of the director of girl leadership or her designee. Please CALL the Girl Leadership Assistant at Ext. 7132 for possible availability after the registration deadline has passed.

20

PROGRAM CANCELATIONS: If a program does not meet the minimum registration as of the deadline date, GSNI reserves the right to cancel the program. Notice will be made by email and/or phone. PAYMENT: Payment in full MUST be submitted with the registration. Cash, check, money order, VISA, MasterCard., Discover and/or “Cookie Dough/S’more Dough” are accepted. Online registration requires credit card payment. “Cookie Dough/S’more Dough” cannot be used with online payment. “Cookie Dough/S’more Dough” must be received prior to the expiration date listed on the coupon and can only be used for the girl’s fees. CONFIRMATION: A registration confirmation will be emailed to all participants shortly after the closing date of registration. If you have not received a confirmation five (5) days prior to the event, please call the staff contact person listed in the program description. FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: A limited amount of financial assistance is available. Girl participants may request up to $15 twice per membership year for program event financial assistance. Requests are considered by the membership year the event is being held, not date submitted. If requesting financial assistance for a program event, submit a completed financial assistance request WITH the event registration form. The financial assistance form may be found on the GSNI website or contact the girl leadership assistant at Ext. 7132. REFUND PROCEDURE: •• A full refund of the fee (including deposit) is made ONLY if a participant can’t be placed in the program of her choice or if it is necessary for GSNI to cancel a program opportunity.

•• A partial refund, cost of the event minus a $5 per person processing fee or 1/2 the event fee for events costing less than $10, will be given if requested in writing prior to the event deadline. When requesting a refund, include the following information in an email or letter to the girl leadership assistant: name and address of participant, name and date of event, and reason for request.

•• No refunds will be given after the event registration deadline. If a Girl Scout membership registration fee was paid, it is non-refundable or transferable. CHAPERONES: Adults accompanying participants may be responsible for: •• Assisting with program activities as requested by program facilitator. •• Administering any necessary disciplinary actions when behavior is disruptive. If behavior continues to disrupt, the workshop facilitator may alert the chaperones to have them handle the situation appropriately.

Girl Scout Scholarship Program For Graduating Girl Scout Ambassadors

Did you know that Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois has a scholarship program that helps girl members fund their education beyond high school? While your girls may be too young to benefit now, we want girls and parents to be aware of the many benefits staying in Girl Scouting provides—the scholarship program being just one of them. Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois recognizes the importance of education and training as a necessary preparation for adulthood in our increasingly complex society. To help young women further their education and develop skills in their chosen field, Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois currently offers three types of scholarships: the Girl Scout Gold Award Scholarship, the Girl Scout Ambassador Scholarship and the Vicki Wright Scholarship.

•• Through an application process that includes specific requirements and activities, Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois awards scholarships to Girl Scout Ambassadors who are graduating from high school. Recipients must be registered members of GSNI and be actively involved in Girl Scouts during their high school years, including participation in both product programs.

•• The Girl Scout Gold Award Scholarship is awarded to Girl Scout Ambassadors who are graduating high school and have earned their Girl Scout Gold Award. Recipients must be registered members of GSNI, actively involved in Girl Scouts during their high school years, including participation in both product programs and have earned their Girl Scout Gold Award by March 14, 2014. •• The GSNI Vicki Wright Scholarship is awarded to Girl Scout Ambassadors who are graduating high school and are pursuing a 4-year degree in Education or Non-Profit Management. Girls must be enrolled in an accredited 4-year institution of higher learning for the fall of 2014. GSNI Ambassador, GS Gold Award, and GSNI Vicki Wright Scholarship Guidelines and Applications will be available on our website at www.girlscoutsni.org/event on January 15, 2014. The application deadline is March 14, 2014.

Community Partners Preferred

GSNI Partner

Preferred Partners are businesses, organizations, and experts in your community

offering quality events and activities for girls. Preferred Partner programming is aligned specifically to the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, and offered only to Girl Scouts. Preferred Partners understand the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, and fully support the leadership keys, processes and outcomes. Opportunities are designed with Girl Scout Journeys and badges in mind.

Two types of Preferred Partner events are available:

•• Scheduled events take place on a scheduled date, at a specific time and location. Multiple troops/ groups/girls attend at one time. You’ll see these events listed throughout this booklet. Register for these events through the council’s website. • To browse scheduled events or to register for an event, click here.

•• Flexible events offer events and activities with flexible scheduling for troops, groups, or service units. One adult volunteer contacts the Preferred Partner to set up the details of the event, including date/ time/location. • To browse flexible events, click here. • To view an interactive map of flexible Preferred Partners, click here.

Community Service

Girls want to know they can make a difference in the world around them! Girl Scouts often do both community service and Take Action projects. Both types of projects help communities in different ways. To complete a Journey, girls need to do a Take Action project (which some organizations call service learning). Click here to learn more about how Girl Scouts defines the differences between community service and service learning. • To browse a list of community service opportunities within GSNI, click here. • To view an interactive map of community service opportunities, click here.

Community Offerings

Community Offerings are events or activities that are open to the public, or provide a discount or special offer to Girl Scout members. These events enhance the Girl Scout experience, but are not specifically aligned to the GSLE (Girl Scout Leadership Experience). GSNI is not responsible for the content of these opportunities, but provides information about these offerings to our members as a service. • To browse a list of community offerings, click here.

Note: Each business/organization provides a pdf flyer with additional information. Click the links within the list to access this information.
