Dear Volunteers, In 2012 we celebrated 100 Years of Girl Scouting, we saw girls take action around them and change the world. As we enter 2013, we have even more opportunities ahead to continue our work together to grow young women who have the courage, confidence and character to change the world around them.

We know Girl Scouting works. Our alumnae are living proof that what we teach today impacts the leaders of tomorrow. • • • •

Eighty percent of women business owners were Girl Scouts. Sixty-nine percent of female U.S. Senators were Girl Scouts. Sixty-seven percent of female members of the House of Representatives were Girl Scouts. Virtually every female astronaut who has flown in space was a Girl Scout.

Volunteers are essential in making Girl Scouts the leading organization for girls across our nation. Because of the work that you do here locally, Girl Scouting is able to have a far-reaching impact far beyond the geographic boundaries of our council. We know that when girls succeed, so does society. Every year, Girl Scouts provide over 75 million hours of direct services to their communities. You are helping to build the girls who make our world a better place! I want to thank you for the time commitment that you give to our organization and to serving our girls. We understand that your time is valuable, so we truly appreciate your dedication and service to the Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana. Karly Buckner Director of Volunteer Services Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana T 502.636.0900 X 23900

Welcome Letter

Without you as a volunteer, we could not reach the girls and young women of today to prepare them to be the strong leaders of tomorrow. Through your time, commitment and dedication, you are making a difference in girls’ lives.


Adult Awards and Recognitions

Dear Volunteers, Wow, it’s that time of year again to recognize our great volunteers and staff for all the amazing work they do for the girls in our council! People volunteer for so many reasons, but underneath it all, most volunteer to make a difference in other’s lives. Volunteers work with our girls directly and indirectly each day, and many deeds go unnoticed. The awards and recognition process allows us to recognize our volunteers for their time and dedication in moving the Girl Scout Mission forward and building girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place. Take a moment to think about those volunteers that have made a difference in your life, your daughters, granddaughter, or niece, and recognize them by nominating them for an award. Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana has several awards to recognize volunteers at all levels. To follow, you will find a list of Awards with the requirements to nominate a volunteer or staff. The nomination deadline for awards is February 15, 2013. Please see the 2012-2013 Adult Awards & Recognitions Booklet for details. This booklet can be found at www.gskentuckiana.org or your local Program and Learning Center. If you need further assistance, please contact one of your service center representatives. Sincerely, Sarai Snyder-Gumm 2012-2013 Awards & Recognitions Task Force Chair

Course Descriptions

Essentials of River Kayaking – Level 2 The Essentials of River Kayaking course is designed to teach beginner paddlers to safely and enjoyably kayak on flat water and gentle rivers of no more than Class 1 difficulty. This course expands on the Introduction to Kayaking Level 1 course and would qualify the adult leader to take girls on slow moving streams and rivers (Green River, Elkhorn Creek and similar areas) when water levels are classified at Class 1. Fee: $30.

High Ropes Course Facilitator Course Training involves care, use and storage of equipment, knot tying, course setup, belaying, zip line training, emergency procedures and more! Learn and practice the facilitator skills needed to lead effective trust building and problem-solving activities on the high ropes course. Equip yourself with tools and techniques to make a difference in the lives of girls and our other participants and manage the risks of the more technical experiential activities. High ropes facilitator training involves training on all of our high ropes elements. You will then need to perform observations and successfully complete supervised facilitation of several groups before being certified and permitted to lead council groups on your own.
