Did you know that Thursday, October 11 is International Day of the Girl ? To celebrate, we want to showcase how Girl Scouts helps girls develop leadership skills and reach their full potential each and every day.
Proof of Girls Scouts’ impact will be popping up around Dallas at landmarks including the Perot Museum, Dallas City Hall, Klyde Warren Park, Katy Trail, and Victory Plaza alongside Girl Scouts and notable alums and partners.
We hope you’ll find some time during the day to tell your friends and colleagues about your support for Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas, and why you’re invested in girls.
How can you join the celebration? Here’s a few suggestions on how you can participate.
1. Dress up to show your Girl Scout pride!
Whether you’re a parent, leader, or supporter of the Movement, wear a Girl Scout pin, uniform, or Girl Scout green.
