With the November 2012 elections fast approaching, now is a great time to engage your troop or group in learning more about government and citizenship. Girl Scouts of Colorado has put together an activity guide to get Girl Scouts more involved in the elections while also giving them the skill needed to encourage other members of their community to become involved as well.
In this guide, you will see a list of suggested activities to help nurture your Girl Scouts into informed and responsible citizens by preparing them for the day they get their chance at the voting booth. Activities are broken down into three sections, Discover, Connect and Take Action. Don’t miss this great opportunity to get your girls engaged in a discussion about leadership and government.
For questions, suggestions or guidance please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. (Important Note: Please keep in mind that Girl Scouts can’t advocate for one political party/candidate or another, or participate in a political rally as Girl Scouts, such as wearing their Girl Scout uniforms to a political rally. If you have further questions, please email email@example.com.)
