Girl Scouts look for volunteers in Lander

Jul 25, 2014 - From staff reports

Girl Scouts of Montana and Wyoming are looking for Lander volunteers and troop leaders.

According to press release from Girl Scouts of Montana and Wyoming, the group covers more than 245,000 square miles, 79 counties and in the council area has more than 128,000 girls needing a positive role model in their lives.

As a volunteer, a person introduces girls to new experiences, showing them they're capable of more than they ever imagined. Volunteers will be their supporters, guides and mentors, helping them develop skills and confidence.

Volunteering opportunities with Girl Scouts are tailored to fit a volunteer's schedule, skills and interests.

The release said Girl Scouts is the No. 1 leadership organization for girls and women in the world, and it has been building the courage, confidence and character of girls for more than a century.

The girls in Lander need volunteers and troop leaders to guide them.

Every girl has the ability to lead. However, only one girl in five believes she can. A lack of role models, unhealthy images of beauty, peer pressure to not stand out and a mean-girl culture are just some of the obstacles standing between girls and their full potential, according to the release.
