Whether someone has a little or a lot of time to give, every attempt is made to meet the availability and interests of the volunteer with commitments of as little as one or two events a year to something more long term.”Programs of the Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama focus on financial literacy, science, technology, engineering and math. Leadership development helps girls contribute to their families, communities and the nation’s workforce today and in the future, Gallichant said.“Diversity is a core value of Girl Scouts and, in addition to ongoing troops, Girl Scouts is committed to serving girls who sometimes face overwhelming obstacles through its research programs,” he said.For more information about troop opportunities, forming new troops or volunteer opportunities, call Gallichant at 251-344-3330 ext. 1402 or 251-605-3011 or by email at [email protected] Next UpSTEM programs keep girls interested in science, technology, engineering and math curriculums while girl-led programming provides an environment for them to take leadership roles.“While joining a troop is the most common option for participation, there are other ways for girls to become and participate as Girl Scout,” Gallichant said. “Individual girls may join as a Juliette, which provides more flexibility for girls and parents with active schedules.”While allowing them to take part in many of the activities provided by Girl Scouts, including camp, STEM programs, trips, product sales and other activities, Juliettes can work toward earning badges and other goal-oriented programming at their own pace.
