guide 2019-2020


When a Girl Scout unleashes her inner G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, and Leader™) the possibilities are

ENDLESS.

At Girl Scouts - North Carolina Coastal Pines, we believe that every girl should be provided with the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive. That every girl should be given the tools to discover new passions, chase her dreams, and become her best self. That every girl should have the chance to realize her potential and conquer the unimaginable in a safe and supportive environment. Powered by Girl Scouts, we are making it possible for every Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, and Leader (G.I.R.L.) to achieve all of this, one program event or badge at a time. When a G.I.R.L. embarks on her journey with Girl Scouts, she gets to lead her own adventure in an all-girl environment and to choose the exciting, hands-on activities that interest her most. Does she have a knack for problem-solving and creating cool inventions in STEM? We have a badge for her to put her ideas into action! Does she love to get outside and explore the world around her while developing survival and orienteering skills? We have an event for her to grow with her fellow nature enthusiasts. Girl Scouts prepares girls of all ages, interests, and abilities for a lifetime of success through unique, life-changing programs and experiences because we believe that every girl should be given the tools and resources they need to become the G.I.R.L.s of today and tomorrow. At Girl Scouts, “Can I?” quickly turns into “I will!” as girls transform their ideas into action, turn their questions into adventure, and grow their confidence through practice. Powered by Girl Scouts and delivering on our mission to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, we are changing the world, one G.I.R.L. at a time. With programming centered around STEM (science, technology, engineering, math), the outdoors, entrepreneurship, and life skills, we provide girls with hands-on activities designed to inspire and empower them throughout their Girl Scout journey. Inside the 2019-2020 Activity Guide you will find a variety of amazing programs, trainings, and special opportunities for your G.I.R.L. to discover her strengths and pursue her passions. At Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines, we can’t wait to see her learn and grow as she unleashes her inner G.I.R.L. with us!

WITH A GOAL

everyday 12 2019-2020 Activity Guide

Family Partnership re-imagined, launching August 2019 Did you know that an astounding 80 percent of female entrepreneurs were once Girl Scouts? Girl Scouts Give aims to make that number even higher by giving troops a platform to flex their social entrepreneurship muscles while taking action to “be a sister to every Girl Scout.” Social entrepreneurs change the world through their time, talent and treasure. Integrating philanthropy and programming, this council-wide campaign engages troops, girls, and families to do the same by investing in their Girl Scout sisters. To participate or for more information, please visit Girl Scouts Give on www.InvestInGirlsNC.org, login to the Volunteer Toolkit, or check it out on the Council Patch Program page on our website.


LIFE SKILLS

Girl Scouts Highest Awards Each year, the Girl Scout Gold, Silver, and Bronze Awards are presented to girls who have planned and executed far-reaching projects in response to pressing community needs. In the process, girls gain skills in leadership, project planning, time management, and budgeting, plus confidence to last a lifetime.

Girl Scout Bronze Award The Girl Scout Bronze Award is the highest honor a Girl Scout Junior can achieve. When you go for the Bronze Award, you represent what Girl Scouts can achieve in their communities. And, of course, you want to do that in a way that’s fun for you— and for everyone else involved, too! Earning the Girl Scout Bronze Award involves the time to complete a Journey, and then a suggested minimum of 20 hours building your team, exploring your community, choosing your project, planning it, putting your plan in motion, and spreading the word about your project.

Girl Scout Silver Award Going for the Girl Scout Silver Award gives a Girl Scout Cadette the chance to show that she is a leader who is organized, determined, and dedicated to improving her community. Earning the award puts girls among an exceptional group who have used their knowledge and leadership skills to make a difference in the world. The prerequisite to earning your Girl Scout Silver Award is to complete a Girl Scout Cadette Journey. Once you complete your Journey, the suggested minimum time for earning your Girl Scout Silver Award is 50 hours. You can start by planning the time in parts, then dividing it up by the steps.

Girl Scout Gold Award The Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest and most prestigious award that Girl Scout Seniors and Ambassadors can earn. The Girl Scout Gold Award follows the Standards of Excellence and challenges you to develop yourself as a leader, achieve the Girl Scout Leadership Outcomes, and make a mark on your community that creates a lasting impact on the lives of others. Fulfilling the requirements for the Girl Scout Gold Award starts with the completion of two Girl Scout Senior or Ambassador Journeys or having earned the Silver Award and completing one Senior or Ambassador Journey. After you have fulfilled the Journey(s) requirement, 80 hours is the suggested minimum hours to complete the 7 steps to go Gold: identifying an issue, investigating it thoroughly, getting help and building a team, creating a plan, presenting your plan, gathering feedback, taking action, and educating and inspiring others. We’re committed to providing resources to help you achieve success. In fact, we’ve launched several new resources to support you along the way including our new online training module, hands-on Gold Award workshops, a Girl Scout Gold Award Girl Workbook, and virtual office hours - all to help prepare you to create sustainable change. 13

CORPORATE SPONSORSHIP We partner with companies from across our council to bring amazing programs to girls. Does your company want to sponsor and/or participate in any of the programs listed in this activity guide? If so, please contact development@nccoastalpines.org.

Media Girlz Do you love the spotlight almost as much as you love Girl Scouts? Our Media Girlz team participates in various media opportunities, special events, and more! Girls learn about public speaking and practice business etiquette while sharing with their community how great it is to be a Girl Scout! We accept applications annually for the team at the end of each program year, so be on the lookout for more information.

VTK As a Girl Scout volunteer, there are a ton of great online resources right at your fingertips! One of our most powerful online tools is our Volunteer Toolkit (VTK)! This wonderful planning resource can be accessed by troop volunteers and parents and includes meeting and year plans (including activities, supply lists, and more), troop communication tools, and a parent-view to keep up with troop activities. Troop Co-Leaders can also submit their Annual Finance Report through the Volunteer Toolkit.

Gadget Girls Interested in learning about or working with robots? Join our Gadget Girls robotics team where girls work together to build, test, and program robots—then compete against other teams in North Carolina and beyond! The team meets in Cary weekly outside of build season and Monday through Friday during build season. Adult coaches and mentors guide the team through challenges as they identify underlying problems, use research to develop innovative solutions, and practice critical thinking and creativity. If you’re interested in joining, email the Program Director at programteam@nccoastalpines.org.

Story Submission We want to share your Girl Scout story! From earning a new STEM badge to using your Girl Scout Cookie Program proceeds to go on an incredible adventure, Girl Scouts build courage, confidence, and character in a variety of ways. If you share your stories with us, we can feature them on our council social media, website, our volunteer newsletter, and more. Visit our website to submit your story!

Please Recycle A Girl Scout uses her resources wisely to make the world a better place! Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines encourages you to recycle this magazine when you have finished using it. The paper is FSC-Certified meeting standards for sustainable forestry practices. The inks used are vegetable based, so they’re much friendlier on the environment.
