Starting in childhood, girls are inundated with negative messages and behaviors that prevent them from building healthy relationships and ideals about their potential. Girls keep these unhealthy ideals and relationships as they mature into women. The competition and comparison formed on the playground and in the classroom carries over to the boardroom and in the home preventing women from reaching their fullest potential.
Girl Scouts of the Sierra Nevada is developing the next generation of girl leaders. Let’s create a world where all women and girls are appreciated for their talent, strengths and uniqueness!
We invite you to stand beside us the week of October 25-31, 2015 to celebrate this national effort to change our current culture so every girl and woman can reach her fullest potential.
