This last year has been a challenge, but sometimes that’s a good thing. It’s brought out the strength, creativity, and resilience in so many of us. People who are pushing for a better tomorrow, and the young people imagining a brighter today. People like Girl Scouts.
Strength, resilience, togetherness, and the support of community—that’s what Girl Scouts of Southeast Florida is all about. In this uncertain world, you can count on one thing for sure: today, tomorrow and in the future, Girl Scouts is right here with you!
With Girl Scouts, you’re not just giving your girl something to do, you’re giving her someone to be. The bravest, boldest, best version of herself. The version of herself that walks with her head a bit higher and acts with confidence. And as she grows, we’ll grow with her, guiding her through life’s ups and downs, supporting her strengths, and showing her new and exciting paths to take.
This spring, GSSEF is excited to announce the national collaboration with Penguin Random House and former First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama to introduce the Becoming Me program, inspired by themes from Mrs. Obama’s Becoming: Adapted for Young Readers. Through the program, girls will unlock the power of their unique stories and embark on journeys to becoming their best selves.
Join with Girl Scouts from across the country for a members-only virtual event with Mrs. Obama on Thursday, May 6, to kick off Becoming Me! The event will feature a conversation between Girl Scouts and Mrs. Obama during which she’ll explore the themes in Becoming: Adapted for Young Readers and how they relate to Girl Scouts’ and young people’s experiences today.
Following the event, girls can go on to earn badges and explore who they want to become. Drawing on Girl Scouts’ programming – which includes over 300 skill-building badges – the six to eight-week Becoming Me program series is built on 18 badges that explore key themes in Becoming: Adapted for Young Readers.
