GAB Partners With Girl Scouts.
March 14, 2018 Girl Scout’s Southeastern Wisconsin, Marion Chester Read Service Center, Milwaukee, WI
Generations Against Bullying representatives, Linda Lee, Pat Jones James Dean, and Ash Renteria had a great meeting today at the Girl Scout‘s Southeastern Wisconsin, Marion Chester Read Service Center. Great hospitality was received from Sue Molina, Director of Girl Scout Leadership Experience, and Mary Baierl, Girl Experience Manager. The meeting was to discuss how GAB and the Girl Scouts could partner to provide girls with more opportunity to learn about bullying and how to be an upstander. The GAB anti-bullying program would provide the opportunity for the girls to earn an upstander patch. GAB’s Upstander Anti-Bully Program aligns very well with the Girl Scout Leadership Experience that emphasizes “discovery”, “connecting” and “taking action”. The Scout process is girl led, learning by doing, and cooperation. With more than 29,200 girls and 7900 adults our partnership would offer terrific visibility to the anti-bully upstander effort. We will be providing the Upstander Patch to all the grade levels from Daises to Ambassadors. We are so proud to have the opportunity to create more upstanders in our world.
The Girl Scout Mission is a perfect alignment to our mission, ‘Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place. It’s a perfect match to our mission to build courage, confidence, character and create upstanders.
GAB looks forward to working with the Girl Scouts to develop a dynamic program to make our world a better place for everyone. 100 Years 1917-2017 – Girls Change The World
