Girl Scouts offer free memberships amid pandemic

APPLETON – Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes have launched their “For Every Girl” initiative, offering free memberships to all new members.

“Girl Scouts continues to provide a shelter from the storm – a place where girls can find connection, belonging, learning opportunities and unique experiences with their peers,” says Rebecca Sgarlotti, membership engagement director. “Meeting the moment in creative and innovative ways, we’ve been able to transform our program to ensure girls can still access Girl Scouts virtually. Removing the financial barrier to giving us a try in these challenging times is the right thing to do,” she continues.

Girl Scouts continues to focus on helping girls reach their full potential through the organization’s four core pillars – STEM, Outdoors, Life Skills and Entrepreneurship.

In addition, current programming emphasizes three areas that are critical to girls’ success right now: supporting girls’ mental health, mitigating learning loss and helping girls reflect the values of justice and fairness.

For new girls interested in taking advantage of this opportunity, visit gsnwgl.org/join to sign up today. This free membership initiative for new girls is available now through March 31, 2021.
