L.E.A.D. Outreach | Celebrate Girls
At Girl Scouts, girls prepare for a lifetime of leadership, success,and adventure in a safe, no-limits place designed for and by girls. We know, however, that some girls in underserved communities in northernNew Jersey, where our membership is not as strong due to insufficient numbers of volunteers or funding, are the ones who might benefit most from Girl Scouting.
Our Learn. Explore. Aspire. Dream. (L.E.A.D.) Outreach Initiative supports those girls, allowing them to participate in the Girl Scout Leadership Experience—a collection of engaging,challenging, and fun activities such as earning badges, going on trips, selling cookies, exploring science, getting outdoors, and doing community service projects.
During the summer months, our Celebrate Girls Paterson Summer Program is where girls can gain important skills in four areas that form the foundation of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience: Life Skills, Outdoors,Entrepreneurship, and S.T.E.M.
Themed activities make every day a fun, new adventure. Girls get to work on Girl Scout badges, attend weekly field trips, and participate in a Book Club. Activities also include: Outdoor games; Nature walks; Sports; Swimming; Bike riding; Arts & crafts; Drama; Dance; Hands-on science activities; and so much more!
Our L.E.A.D. Outreach Initiative and Celebrate Girls Paterson Summer Program are generously supported by corporations, foundations, and other donors.
