Girl Scouting in the School Day
This 12-week Girl Scout program serves 1,200 girls who are attending Tyler ISD elementary and middle schools, 6th through 8th grades. Target schools are located in communities where traditional troops have been difficult to establish due to a lack financial resources, transportation, and volunteers. The program is designed to promote a healthy self-image and positive social skills while addressing current social issues and trends affecting girls during what is often the most confusing and critical period of childhood. Highly-trained leaders partner with local schools to deliver the specially designed program in an all-girl environment during PE classes during the school day. Girls take part in interactive groups, community service projects, field trips, role-playing, discussions, and confidence and character building activities that they are unlikely to encounter elsewhere. GSSD helps girls to avoid high-risk behavior, develop self-esteem, empowers them to change their own lives and to positively impact their families and communities.
