Girl Scouts of Colorado travels to Girls’ World Forum


From Rae Ann Dougherty

The Girls’ World Forum in Chicago is just days away! This is the last of the three Centenary World Forums addressing the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and specifically focusing on the three of eight MDGs that were selected by girls for World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS):

  • MDG 1: Eradicate Extreme Poverty and Hunger
  • MDG 3: Promote Gender Equality and Empower Women
  • MDG 7: Ensure Environmental Sustainability

This event is a part of the 100th Anniversary of Girl Scouting in the USA and promises to be very exciting as there are scheduled to be 500 participants from 90 countries and 82 councils! Girl Scouts of Colorado will be well represented with a delegation of two girls, Abby Schmid and Leina Hutchinson, Heather Crandall as the Young Woman Chaperone, Rae Ann Dougherty as a Facilitator and Renee Meade as Volunteer.

The Girls’ World Forum is girl planned. You can watch it unfold through Facebook. The www.Facebook.com/YWWFsite page was begun with the first World Forum in 2010 and will continue this year.

Please “like” the Facebook page and share it with all of your Girl Scout “sisters.”  You will then be able follow the energy and excitement that will begin on July 12th.

The Colorado delegation also plans to report back on their experiences after the event, which will be shared on this blog and via Girl Scouts of Colorado’s social media channels and publications.
