Join Girl Scouts today! New troops starting soon.

Are you or your daughter interested in joining Girl Scouts? Are you a volunteer looking for a fun way to share your talent with kids? New Girl Scout troops are forming this Fall at almost every school in Sonoma Valley. Join us on the following dates to find out more about how your daughter can join a troop:

  • September 9th, 3:15pm – 4:15pm at Prestwood Elementary School
  • September 10th, 3:15pm – 4:15pm at St. Francis Elementary School
  • September 11th, 6:30pm – 7:30pm at Sonoma Valley Library (in the community room).

Girl Scouting is the place for girls to have fun, make friends, and try new experiences such as turning ordinary household items into robots, volunteering with a coastal clean-up, planting redwood saplings, or hiking along the Pacific Coast Trail!

“We want every girl in Sonoma Valley to be so excited about the adventures she’ll have with us that she can hardly wait for it, because she knows she can do anything she sets her mind to,” said Jessa Rank, the Service Unit Director for Sonoma, “That feeling starts with parents who encourage their daughters, and volunteers who are role models.”

“It’s our volunteers who are the backbone of the Girl Scout Program.  There are a variety of ways you can work with the girls including leading a troop, sharing your special hobby or talent, or even helping at a one-time event.  We always need adults (both men and women) that have a willingness to inspire the girls”, commented Rank.

The Girl Scout Program is girl-driven, reflecting the ever-changing needs and interests of today’s girls. Girls discover the fun, friendship, and power of girls together. Girls learn the importance of personal responsibility, the value of goal-setting, the spirit of teamwork, and the thrill of accomplishment. Girl Scouting is for every girl, everywhere – where today’s girls can become tomorrow’s leaders.

Membership in Girl Scouts is open to girls ages 5-17; women and men over 17 can join as adult members. Girl Scout annual membership is only $15 a year, and families can apply for financial aid.

For more information, call us at (707) 205-1233 or send an email: SonomaGirlScouts@gmail.com.  We’d love to hear from you!
