Let's look back at the short and long term impact of Girl Scouts and where GSLE came from, and why it matters!
It's easy to sometimes get caught up in behavior management, time management (or lack thereof!), and just general exhaustion, stress, and drama as a troop volunteer. Sometimes we wonder, is this all really worth it? And what are the girls even getting out of Girl Scouts, anyway?
Let's take a look at the impacts and outcomes, short term, intermediate, and long term, of Girl Scouts and GSLE. What do Girl Scouts get from participating in Girl Scouts that non-Girl Scouts don't get? Why is Girl Scouts called "The Success Factor" for girls and women? What activities specifically drive the GSLE outcomes for Girl Scouts? And where are Girl Scout alumnae now, and what impact did Girl Scouts have on their lives long term?
