Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines is searching for rising Girl Scout Juniors, Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors who love being in the spotlight and who ooze the courage, confidence, and character of a true G.I.R.L.

Media Girlz is a year-long program that will give girls across central and eastern North Carolina the chance to be included in various media opportunities like television, radio, and newspaper interviews and be the girl voices of our 41-county footprint.
Looking for reasons why girls should apply to be a Media Girl? Here’s are our top three!
- Enhance Your Communication Skills
Having great communication skills is key in almost every career, relationship, and in everyday life. By being a Media Girl your written and verbal communications skills will not only improve, but you will gain confidence in these skills! Media Girlz offers opportunities for girls to speak publicly, engage with television and newspaper reporters and radio personalities, and attend council events where you will be talking to council staff and volunteers.
- Explore Career Options
Media Girlz is perfect for girls looking to explore their interest in television, radio, writing, production, and more! What better way to get a jump start on exploring new careers options than getting to experience it hands-on? With this program, girls will experience the media world and learn how the news is produced. Girls will learn proper business and interview etiquette, along with having a great addition to put on their college applications and resumes.
- Elevate your Girl Scout Story
If you’re passionate about Girl Scouts and love sharing your Girl Scout story – Media Girlz is the perfect fit for you. When you talk to the media, you will share your leadership experience and help spread the word about Girl Scouts across our council. You’ll get to show the world that Girl Scouts is the premier leadership development organization for girls and young women, and share stories about how girls like you are making an impact in world every day.
