“Make new friends, but keep the old…one is silver and the other gold!”
-Traditional Girl Scout song 

Building Bridges

Saturday, April 21
Various locations
 (see below)

Building Bridges is a new Girl Scouts San Diego patch program generously supported by Linden Root Dickinson Foundation that is designed to encourage intergenerational learning. The program provides Girl Scouts of all ages the opportunity to connect with older adults in their communities in a way that allows both groups to learn from each other. Participants will discover that everyone stands to benefit from interacting with individuals of generations other than their own. 

Let us know you are Building Bridges.
