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.

2 | Annual Report 2019-2020

Dear Girl Scout Family, We began the 2020 Girl Scout membership year eager to inspire girls to seek out new ideas and learn about the world around them, to empower them to stand up for what they believe in, and to support them in their quest to discover who they are and who they want to be. This year showed us that even in a world faced with uncertainty and unprecedented change, we can achieve all of this and more. Why? Because we are Girl Scout Strong. At Girl Scouts, we provide girls with a safe space to be themselves and to learn by doing surrounded by supportive volunteers and their Girl Scout sisters. That support system proved more important than ever this year when our world was faced with a global pandemic and increased civil unrest. In true Girl Scout style, Girl Scouts banded together to support each other and their communities when they were needed the most. Girl Scouts learned how to make face masks for their friends and families and created care packages for first responders to show encouragement. Even when many of their own families were strongly impacted by COVID-19, Girl Scouts showed resilience and compassion and we are so proud of their strength and resolve to make the world a better place. Council volunteers and staff reimagined how to deliver our exceptional Girl Scout Leadership Experience in ways we had never done before. Committed to keeping the safety of our girls and volunteers a top priority, most of our programs shifted to a virtual setting with the introduction of Girl Scouting at Home. Unleashing our inner innovators just as we encourage our girls to do, we organized live virtual events and created recorded troop meetings, daily program activity guides, volunteer trainings and resources, and more. Our incredible donors stepped forward to ensure all girls could participate, and this platform allowed us to reach girls not only within our council, but around the world. Girl Scouting at Home gave girls the opportunity to connect with their troop and explore self-guided Girl Scout activities allowing them to be creative, forward-thinking, and innovative in choosing their own Girl Scout experiences at a time when many of their other school and community activities were canceled. Even with its unique challenges, this year has strengthened our girls and our council by encouraging us to stretch and grow, to be more inclusive and open-minded, and to stay true to our Mission while embracing change. As we look ahead, we are excited to continue to provide girls with a place where they feel welcome and supported as they conquer their fears and pursue their dreams. When girls challenge themselves to exceed their goals, they show the world that anything is possible because, after all, they are Girl Scout Strong. Yours in Girl Scouting,

Bonnie V. Hancock Board of Directors, Chair

Girl Scout Strong Girl Scouts break down barriers, stand up for what they believe in, and take the lead in making a lasting change. Each Girl Scout has her own unique ideas, strengths, and passions, and together we are one. Girl Scout Strong is being a sister to every girl no matter who she is. Girl Scout Strong is innovating when all else fails. Girl Scout Strong is working together for the common good. Girl Scout Strong is accomplishing the unimaginable. Camp Graham Northampton

Building Beyond Today: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Our Building Beyond Today: Diversity, Equity, Inclusion (DEI) program provides girls an opportunity to earn a Building Beyond Today patch which encourages and enables girls to raise their hand to enact change. When girls earn this patch, they develop an appreciation of the uniqueness and commonalities of both themselves and others, and the rich diversity of various cultures in their community and in the world. Girls also deepen their understanding and respect for people who may be different from them and learn how to better relate to others.

Girl Scouting at Home When shelter in place took effect and it became unclear when programs and troop meetings would resume as usual, we needed to ensure that girls could stay active, engaged, and connected. We launched Girl Scouting at Home in March to provide girls with ways they could earn badges, explore the outdoors, and have a troop meeting experience from the safety of their home and backyard. With Digital G.I.R.L., we posted new activity guides—exploring, Community Connection, Girl Scout Traditions, Life Skills/ Entrepreneurship/Finance, the Outdoors, and STEM—each weekday from March 16-May 29, 2020, on our Girl Scouting at Home webpage. We also hosted live events each week on our social media pages featuring interviews with female leaders on #GirlTalkTuesdays and activities girls could follow along with on Thursdays. To bring Girl Scouting to girls’ homes, troop meetings were also recorded that girls could participate in and live troop meetings were hosted on Zoom so girls could interact with other girls. We encouraged troop leaders to host their own virtual meetings with their troops by providing new trainings and events to ensure they felt supported and ready to take on the digital world. Girls and adults that engaged in our Girl Scouting at Home activities and events had the opportunity to work towards our new Girl Scouting at Home patch—our first patch program available for adults! The success of Girl Scouting at Home shows the resilience and adaptability of our girls and volunteers and how big things can happen when plans change.

Strength in STEM At Girl Scouts, we introduce girls of every age to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) to show them how they can use their unique strengths to change the world. Our “fun with a purpose” curriculum inspires girls to celebrate discovery and become master problem solvers in a variety of areas. This year we introduced 42 new badges, and 30 of which focused on STEM, exploring cybersecurity, space science, and coding. With so much of our world going virtual this year, Girl Scouts’ new cybersecurity badges could not have come at a better time as Daisies through Ambassadors could learn ways to protect themselves in our increasingly digital world. We also released Think Like a Citizen Scientist Journeys for Girl Scout Cadettes through Ambassadors so that all Girl Scouts could learn how to use the scientific method to protect our planet. In the fall, our in-person STEM events provided girls with opportunities to think like an engineer, experiment in the STEM Labs, and become field agents on our coast. In the spring and summer, we innovated and held our most popular STEM opportunities, TechnoQuest and Summer Science Camp, in a virtual setting where girls could learn together while staying apart. To provide girls with awesome STEM leaders to look up to, we held special meetings with women in STEM, including a live Q&A with Astronaut Christina Koch where girls learned about her journey to NASA and what her life was like in outer space.

Strength in Reach Mobile Program In its fifth year, our mobile program successfully delivered the Girl Scout Leadership Experience to troops across our council footprint, with a focus on areas where Girl Scouts are underserved due to economic and geographic challenges. “Savannah” and “Daisy”, our two mobile program vehicles, provided programming and training in financial literacy, healthy living, leadership, outdoor/environmental, and STEM to girls and adults. From learning about cells and organisms with microscopes to becoming Program Aides through leadership training, there were opportunities for every girl to strengthen her skills and develop confidence. After taking a break due to the uncertainty of COVID-19, we were excited to be able to get back on the road in September with increased safety measures in place.

Strength in Entrepreneurship With the Girl Scout Cookie Program, girls get hands-on experience in running their own business. They set goals for themselves and strategize ways to reach and exceed them by strengthening their financial literacy and communication skills. The 2020 Girl Scout Cookie Program ran from January 11-March 1, 2020, and Girl Scouts were excited to work towards their favorite Superstar Destinations, our special rewards and recognitions program for girls, and to earn troop proceeds to help fund their adventures. The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the largest girl-led business in the world, and it teaches girls the 5 key skills of goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics. It shows girls that they have what it takes to start their own businesses using creative thinking to make sales and teamwork to achieve a desired outcome. From the time Girl Scouts sell their first box of cookies, they begin to recognize that they can become entrepreneurs and successful leaders in any endeavor. It’s about so much more than what is in the box; it’s about investing in the female leaders of tomorrow.

Operation Cookie Drop Operation Cookie Drop is our council-wide service project that allows Girl Scout troops to give back to military troops. For the past 16 years, Girl Scouts have collected donations for boxes of Girl Scout cookies and have donated over 1 million boxes to military men and women. While Girl Scouts were unable to participate in the Operation Cookie Drop delivery events this year due to COVID-19, the donations brightened the days of our military personnel who were extra grateful to know that Girl Scouts were thinking of them.

3,081,480 cookie boxes sold

10,941 girls selling

Caring Through Cookies When the pandemic began after cookie season ended, our council wanted to make a difference for those struck especially hard. We donated cases of Girl Scout cookies to places like hospitals, schools, and food banks across our council footprint to show we are all in this together. First responders and teachers were grateful for our support and for the delicious treat during a time of added stress!

Strength in the Outdoors One of the best ways for girls to step outside their comfort zones is simply by stepping outdoors. We provide girls with ways to safely take risks, learn important outdoor skills, and develop an appreciation for nature with badges, events, and camping opportunities. We began the year with the release of 12 new Outdoor High Adventure badges, designed for girls to explore nature through exciting activities like skiing, rock climbing, and swimming. These were the first badges girls could earn by choosing a self-directed path. Girl Scout troops put their outdoor skills to the test through our Outdoor Skills Progression Series, which saw great support from Girl Scouts that visited our camps in the fall to master camping skills like cooking, tenting, and orienteering. Following trends of past summers, 2020 summer camp and program registration was high, but we had to make the heartbreaking decision to cancel our in-person summer programs and move to a virtual platform due to safety concerns and state restrictions.

Our Beyond Ordinary Summer Program made it possible for Girl Scouts to continue strengthening their outdoor leadership while practicing social distancing. With Beyond Camp, Girl Scouts participated in online activities with other girls in their session each day with guided adventures of their own. During Friendship Fires, girls engaged in virtual chats and songs with each other just like they do when sitting around the campfire… they could even bring their own s’mores! Our popular Badges and Beyond boxes delivered badgework activities directly to girls’ doorsteps exploring space science and teamwork. This summer was far from ordinary to say the least, but our new outdoor opportunities helped keep us Girl Scout Strong by bringing us together while physically apart.

This year we completed the renovation of the Camp Mary Atkinson program building thanks to the help of our generous donors. The renovation maintained the nostalgia of the building with large windows overlooking the lake, the openness of the great room, and the fireplace, while adding modern amenities and updates to provide year-round climate control along with a fully equipped catering kitchen. We are sure this will become a favorite spot at camp.

Strength in Leadership When Girl Scouts begin the journey to earn one of Girl Scouts’ highest awards, their potential is limitless. They identify where they want to see change and use their creative problem-solving and team-building skills to make an impact on their communities and the world. Through the Girl Scout Bronze, Silver, and Gold Awards, girls recognize that they have the strength they need to make a difference no matter their age or experience level.

299 Bronze Award Girl Scouts

71 Silver Award Girl Scouts

41 Gold Award Girl Scouts

The Bronze Award encourages Girl Scout Juniors to work as a team to explore their community, make a plan, and put their plan in motion. They get to see how seemingly small actions make a big difference.

The Silver Award allows Girl Scout Cadettes to take action either individually or in a team. When they make a difference through their project, they gain the confidence and skills to catapult them to lifelong success.

The Gold Award challenges Girl Scout Seniors and Ambassadors to solve a community problem and make a lasting change with their project. This is the most prestigious award in the world for girls, and it’s only available to Girl Scouts.

12 | Annual Report 2019-2020

Gold, Silver and Bronze Award Girl Scouts are the youth leaders their communities need to create solutions to the new and ever-changing challenges that arose from the global pandemic. Many Girl Scouts working towards their awards had to alter their plans for their projects due to safety restrictions and guidelines, and some Girl Scouts even changed their project completely to meet the changing needs of their communities. We offered a deadline extension to December 31, 2020 to all Girl Scouts working towards their Highest Award to safely harness their enthusiasm and facilitate meaningful solutions with their communities! This year, we recognized our Gold Award Girl Scouts at our first ever Virtual Gold Award Celebration which which was held on Facebook Live. The celebration allowed Girl Scouts to share their projects and impact with a variety of viewers, showing others what the Gold Award is all about and inspiring younger Girl Scouts to also go for the Gold.

Building Beyond Tomorrow: Creating a Community for Girls to Thrive Equipping today’s girls to be the leaders of tomorrow This past year, we saw Girl Scouts near and far rise above the challenges facing our country and Take Action. We asked our Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines community to Take Action with us so that, together, we can continue to create a community for girls to thrive. On our first ever GivingHERsday, we had 98 donors support Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines. Be on the lookout for Giving HERsday 2021 this summer! Thank you to everyone who donated and spread the word to make Building Beyond Tomorrow so successful. Thank you to those of you who shared your stories or signed up as fundraisers. Thank you to the supporters who left sweet comments about the work of our girls and volunteers.

Girl Scout Sustainers Girl Scout Sustainers provide continuous, reliable support that our council counts on to keep Girl Scouting going all year long through a recurring credit card gift or payroll deduction. Thanks to their loyal support, Sustainers know that every time a local Girl Scout grows more confident, helps her community, overcomes an obstacle, makes a new friend, or finds a solution, they helped make it possible.

Girl Scouts Give “Be a sister to every Girl Scout” is at the core of everything we do. Girl Scouts Give is a fundraising campaign and patch program designed to help girls understand the importance of supporting their fellow Girl Scout sisters through investments of their TIME, TALENT, and TREASURE and to recognize that they are part of a larger council and movement. When girls participate in Girl Scouts Give, they learn about philanthropy, giving back, and how they can make a difference. They also learn about the variety of circumstances girls in our council experience. Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines is committed to providing need-based financial assistance. Girl Scouts Give allows our girls to make donations to provide all the things they love about Girl Scouting to other girls and change the lives of their Girl Scout sisters.
