At Girl Scouts of Kentucky’s Wilderness Road, girls are at the center of all we do. This year we put our focus on serving all girls in our service area. We launched alternative program opportunities, an initiative that works toward increasing involvement in the Girl Scout Leadership Experience in our undeserved communities. Our top priority is making sure that every girl gets to be a Girl Scout. Every girl deserves—and needs—this experience. We are committing resources to broaden our reach and tell our story so we can serve even more girls. This requires all hands on deck from staff to volunteers to donors to community partners.
Girl Scouts are making differences today that create the successful world of tomorrow. Imagine a new generation of leaders, stepping across barriers of class and ethnicity, who persuade from a place of principle and wish for the work that needs to be done in the world. We imagine this every day, and it guides our actions.
Leadership experiences are what makes Girl Scouts unique. From her first day as a Girl Scout Daisy, she begins her journey – collaborating and making decisions in an all-girl space. As she progresses, our program progresses with her and taps into her natural curiosity and helps her fine tune her leadership skills and grow her confidence. One day she will change the world!
As you view this year’s Annual Report, you will see how Girl Scouts of Kentucky’s Wilderness Road is influencing today’s young women in powerful ways. We develop leadership qualities in each girl as we partner with nearly 3,000 adults to provide opportunities that inspire 8,000 girls to be their best. We hope you will gain a sense of excitement and optimism for the future that we have for girls.
Yours in Girl Scouting,
