Mitzi Golbek Spirit of Girl Scouting Award
Proceeds from Women of Achievement provide financial assistance to girls in need, especially within GSNNJ’s urban areas, who without our help would not receive the benefits of Girl Scouting. Girl Scouts is committed to ensuring the success of all girls. By focusing on leadership, education and academic success, STEM, outdoor activities, emotional health, financial literacy, and physical health, Girl Scouting develops the whole girl into one of courage, confidence, and character who will make the world a better place.
