Growing in Girl Scouts – Older Girl Programming

Girl Scouts – NC Coastal Pines recognizes that girls who grow in Girl Scouts are provided greater opportunities to develop their leadership skills. The program team has an awesome line up of activities to offer older girls (Cadettes, Seniors, Ambassadors) that are engaging, thought provoking and FUN! Check out our website’s activities section to learn more about each activity and register or download information as a troop, individual or Juliette.

Some highlights include:

The Arts: Spend time at Artspace, located in Raleigh, to create individual works of art under the tutelage of professionals.

Leadership: Attain one or both of the highest awards, the Girl Scout Silver and Gold Awards, by attending an upcoming workshop to learn more.

The Law: Interested in the law or civics? If yes, the UNC Women in Law Patch is back! Attend this program to participate in a mock trial as well as other fun educational activities.

Journey: Are you a Juliette interested in completing the Ambassador level Bliss Journey? This is a great opportunity to complete this Journey over the course of a school year. Registrants will meet monthly engaging in different activities that will come to a conclusion with a fun camping trip in June 2017.

College Readiness: In spring 2017, a variety of college readiness programming will be offered* at various universities to include resume writing, college tours, interviewing skills and more.

Financial Literacy: Merrill Lynch is offering two opportunities for older girls to learn about the importance of good credit and buying power.

Program Aide Core and Specialty: Program Aide Core and Specialty course materials are now available online on our website. Volunteers can download the facilitator and girl training materials to deliver this programming at a time and location convenient for them.

Each of these activities was designed to be fun while exploring new opportunities and developing leadership skills. We can’t wait for your girl to participate!

*Dates for the college readiness program are to be determined.
