Newton County Girl Scout Organizational Meetings
As the new school year begins, Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta kicks off a new membership year in which parents can register their daughters, ages 5-17, to become Girl Scouts.
Community organizational meetings provide opportunities for joining the Girl Scouts and obtaining information about the many activities available for members to enjoy. Meetings will be held at hundreds of local schools, churches and other locations where registration and troop information for parents will be available. Locally, organizational meetings will be held on the listed dates at various locations. Those unable to attend, may still register their daughter by calling (404) 527-7500 or visiting www.girlscoutsofgreateratlanta.org.
In addition to offering more than 300 programs that interest girls today, Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta aims to enhance leadership skills, offer opportunities to participate in community service projects, explore modern science and technology, develop money-management and entrepreneurship skills, encourage creativity through exploring the arts, as well as offer opportunities to travel both nationally and internationally. As always, outdoor fun is available through a wide variety of experiences, including horseback riding, water sports, challenge courses, environmental projects and mother/daughter or father/daughter camping.
There are also opportunities for parents to serve as volunteer leaders. Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta is continuously looking for adult women and men who can serve as role models for girls and young women.
