Delivering on a Promise. Dear Friends, Before every Girl Scout meeting, our girls hold up their hands and say the Girl Scout Promise. Girl Scouts in the Heart of Pennsylvania’s volunteers, supporters and staff also make a daily promise to work together to build girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place. These pages celebrate examples of how that promise has come to life over the past year. We’ve seen a troop tackle a media conglomerate sized issue to encourage girls to stop comparing their bodies to advertisements and to start developing a healthy and positive body image. Another Girl Scout traveled across the globe to provide an impoverished area with essential life-saving skills. We know that Girl Scouts develop business skills at their Girl Scout Cookie Booths, but we got to see a Girl Scout take it further to become the boss of her very own company. We also saw how many Girl Scouts can benefit when a community comes together. This is what courage, confidence and character looks like. top right: Veronica Longenecker, Board Chair, lower right: Ellen M. Kyzer, Chief Executive Officer

With these shining examples of everything Girl Scouts can do, our future looks bright! While we will continue to deliver on our promise, we need your support to provide educational and leadership opportunities that open up endless possibilities for girls. Together, we can continue to make a lasting impact in our Girl Scouts’ lives and in turn make the world a better place. We both know the impact that Girl Scouts can have on girls. We carry our Girl Scout experiences with us today and look forward to working alongside our Girl Scouts, volunteers, community supporters and staff to continue to deliver our promise and mission to build girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place. Yours in Girl Scouting,

Veronica Longenecker Board Chair

courage

A Camper’s Return on Investment Evie Baxter, from State College, has courageously followed her dreams and forged her very own enterprise, EV Designs Jewelry, at just 12-years-old to help fund her summers at Girl Scout camp. She’s been handcrafting earrings since 2013 and has earned enough revenue to pay for half of her camp fees. Just last summer alone she attended three weeks at Camp Small Valley and one week at Camp Archbald, contributing to half the payment. “75% of my profits goes towards Girl Scout camp,” said Evie. What was her return on investment (ROI)? A safe and healthy space where she filled her weeks swimming, practicing archery, kayaking, and building positive friendships. “It’s really fun to meet new people at camp. You arrive at the cabins and meet a bunch of new girls and become friends,” she said. “It’s amazing how nice the girls are and how much I connect with them.”

Like Evie, others have invested in the Girl Scout Camp experience. One partner, Capital BlueCross Blue Shield, is committed to their mission of promoting the health and well-being of their communities. “Our support of the Girl Scouts in the Heart of Pennsylvania helps us to fulfill this mission by fostering programs designed to promote a strong sense of selfworth and confidence in girls. The camping experience in particular is one that allows girls to make lasting friendships, gain a sense of self-reliance, and develop lifelong leadership skills in a safe and natural environment, “said Amy Nilsen, Community Relations Manager for Capital Blue Cross. “Capital Blue Cross strives to be more than an insurance company. By sponsoring programs like the Lookout Lodge at Camp Small Valley, we aim to help make our community healthier and an even better place to live, work and play.”

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

Pamalee Lady GSHPA staff member for 30 years “I believe in the organization. I was a girl that needed Girl Scouting when growing up. In my case I was an only child and needed ‘sisters’ to have fun with. I know that I am helping the organization reach out to all girls. I am especially proud of our program opportunities we offer to girls in a high risk environment.”


Role Models in Confidence The Girl Scouts in Troop 20033 grew up surrounded by excessively slimmed waists, trimmed down thighs, and other digital adjustments in the media. They decided to do something about this issue through the Senior Visionary Award, which encouraged girls to stop comparing their bodies to advertisements and to start celebrating them.

confidence

“Even though the media is changing girls’ perceptions there is still time to turn it around and make people see their self-worth,” said Madison. And so they did by guiding, changing and creating. GUIDE IT: The troop conducted interviews with Stevenson University students and Girl Scouts to measure how people’s body image can change over time. The troop then led a body image workshop to show Girl Scouts the power of confidence and self-worth.

Troop 20033

“The thing that impacted me the most was seeing all the little girls, who are beautiful, not knowing how the media alters photos,” said Sarah.

Members: Gillian-16, Madison-15, Maria-15, and Sarah-15

CHANGE IT: The troop volunteered at a local nonprofit that provides assistance to women and children in need by planning a movie night and talking about how girls are making a difference through Girl Scouts. “We were helping others and making their lives better. It’s what Girl Scouts is about,” said Maria. CREATE IT: Troop 20033 shared their project by creating a YouTube video called ‘The Perception’ to continue to encourage girls to be confident. Gillian advises girls, “I think it is more important for girls to look at what we’ve done and be able to say that we did big things. Girls shouldn’t be afraid to try new things and be the biggest they can be.”

City: Stewartstown (York County)

Award: GSUSA’s Senior Visionary Award challenges Girl Scouts to Create it, Guide it, and Change It to lead a real life opportunity to make a positive difference in girls’ lives.

Vicky Miley GSHPA staff; 33 years of Girl Scouting “My daughter and I both benefited from our involvement in Girl Scouting in our community. Through Girl Scouts, girls can build on their own experiences and find their place in this big world. Today’s girls are our future. Women make a lot of decisions and the better prepared they are to succeed the better off we all are.” DELIVERING ON A PROMISE

character

Supporting a Family of Girl Scouts Families support each other in a time of need and that’s why the 2015 Family Partnership Campaign was so successful. Together our Girl Scout families raised over $28,000 to help provide Girl Scouting to over 2,500 girls in need of financial assistance. “I can look back and see some girls who came from families with little support, but because of Girl Scouts they were able to have opportunities they otherwise wouldn’t have,” said Linda Davis, GSHPA volunteer with over 50 years of Girl Scouting experience. Linda alongside Louise Brown, her longtime friend and Girl Scout volunteer, led the Family Partnership Campaign for Girl Scout Community 715 (Conestoga River).

Their fundraising goal was $792, but they raised over $2,600! All the families had to do was donate their spare change over the 60 day campaign.

After the campaign, Girl Scout Community 715 kept 10% of the total raised plus everything over their goal, which totaled over $2,000. This money reduced the costs of Girl Scout Community events; such as, parades, day camps, archery trips, bowling, and more. “The day camp aid is extremely important,” Louise added. “If we didn’t have it, these girls wouldn’t be able to go camping.”

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.

Linda and Louise gave all the credit to the families and volunteers who gave the gift of Girl Scouting to those in need. “We couldn’t have done it without our families,” said Linda. “We appreciate them so much. I have no children, but Girl Scouting did so much for me growing up and this is my way of giving back.”

Barbara Sherlock Advisor to On My Honor Campus Girl Scouts at Penn State University, University Park “Girl Scouts gives girls the opportunity to try new things without worrying about people’s expectations. It offers a wide range of leadership opportunities and gives girls the chance to work in teams to collaborate, explore, and discover what they love. Girl Scouts gives girls opportunities that they might not have otherwise or might not find anywhere else.”

making the world a better place

Giving Globally: A Journey to Gold In the summer of 2015, Ambassador Girl Scout Shreya Thakur, 17, from Hummelstown, didn’t let over 6,000 miles or a language barrier stop her drive to teach rural students in Bihar, India essential lifesaving First Aid skills. She saw it as a challenge, which inevitably earned her the Girl Scout Gold Award. “Although I knew that it would be hard to create a Gold Award Project so far away from home with unfamiliar people speaking an unfamiliar language, I knew that nothing was impossible if I believed that what I was doing was beneficial and important to people,” said Shreya. And it is important to the people of rural Bihar, where hospitals are far away and hard to access. “If someone falls unconscious or severely injures him/herself, it takes approximately 28 minutes. In that much time, a severely injured or unconscious person can possibly die.” Through her project Shreya gave 1,000 students the power to save lives and challenged them to pass it on to change the world. “I hope the knowledge they gained inspired them to make a difference in their communities.”

Shreya’s Global Gold Award • Three weeks in India • Taught lessons in CPR, first aid, choking, external bleeding and/ or broken bones, head injuries, heat stroke, and dehydration. • Learned Hindi to complete the project • Project was special to Shreya because her mother grew up in Bihar.

Ginger Goodrich more than 21 years “The future of our community, indeed of our world, depends on the next generation. In order to prepare girls for the roles they will assume, it’s important for them to have a solid foundation built on the values inherent in the Girl Scout Promise and Law. We must make sure that girls receive the support they need.”

Girl Scout Promise On my honor, I will try To serve God and my country, To help people at all times and to live by the Girl Scout Law.

Change it Up! Changing the Future of Girls Nearly half of girls, ages 14-17, believe that debt is a normal part of life. This shouldn’t come to a surprise since Pennsylvania students leave with an average of $32,000 in credit card and college debt upon graduation. This generation of girls are extremely optimistic about their futures, but admit to lacking the financial confidence, skills, and know-how to achieve their financial dreams. There’s good news though! On Oct. 1, 2014, Girl Scouts in the Heart of Pennsylvania launched its two-year, signature program Change It Up!, which is dedicated to giving girls the financial literacy tools to start making their dreams a reality. In just its first year, Change It Up! has helped thousands of Girl Scouts learn how to: • Be a savvy shopper with the help of Giant Food Stores. • Write a resume and have a successful interview with tips from women business owners from McDonald’s restaurants. • Run their very own business. • Budget their earnings, savings, and charitable giving from financial experts • and so much more… Through Change It Up! girls are getting the skills, knowledge and confidence to take control of their financial futures. Whatever path they forge they will have the financial know-how to be a success.

Cornelia Yoder more than 21 years of Girl Scouting “I consider Girl Scouts to be the best organization a girl can belong to because girls need to have access to a girl-only, judgment- free environment, where they can openly express themselves without needing to impress others. The leadership skills learned in Girl Scouting are priceless.”

Highmark sees great value in the Girl Scout’s mission to instill courage, confidence, and character in young women who will make the world a better place. We support GSHPA’s role in making that happen on a local level.
