Girl Scouts of Connecticut
Since 1912, Girl Scouts has been helping girls in Connecticut build courage, confidence, and character while developing uncommon leadership skills that serve the common good. The largest organization of women and girls in the state (serving 40,000 girls), it is Connecticut's recognized girl-empowerment organization dedicated to lifelong success through values-based leadership development and personal growth.
Thanks to the new program Live Healthy, Lead Healthy, thousands of Girl Scouts are learning how to eat right, be fit, and take better care of themselves at the organization's 12 summer camps, through local Girl Scout troop activities, and at larger events throughout the state. The program expands the Girls Scouts' health and fitness offerings, including providing healthier meals and snacks, a wider array of noncompetitive physical activities, and guided discussions about healthy food, stress management and lifestyle choices. The program also trains adult volunteers to be fitness "Champions" to Girl Scout troops and girls in underserved areas. For more information, visit ,www.gsofct.org.
