We Want to Hear from the Girls in Khaki
Girl Advisory Board (GAB) is a girl-led group designed to enhance teen leadership in order to help keep girls in grades 6-12—“older Girl Scouts”—engaged in Girl Scouting. GAB members partner with Girl Scouts San Diego’s staff to identify pain points in the “older” Girl Scout experience and create innovative solutions that meet their needs and interests. To do so, they collaborate with their peers to create presentations, workshops, and lesson plans on relevant topics—and, most importantly, chat with Girl Scouts San Diego staff about their experiences as a teen Girl Scout in today’s society.
GAB members must be prepared to make a one-year commitment to the group, including:
- Serving as a spokeswoman for the Cadette-Ambassador Girl Scout community
- Attending quarterly meetings with Girl Scouts San Diego’s staff and monthly meetings with the group
- Committing to working on GAB projects throughout the year, occasionally between meetings.
- Participating in occasional opportunities in addition to scheduled meetings
Who should apply? If you’re a Senior or Ambassador with your finger on the pulse of today’s teen community, and are passionate about raising your voice and taking action to address key issues for girls in grades 6-12 in Girl Scouting, this could be for you! We’re looking for young ladies like you, who exude courage, confidence, and character and want to partner with our staff, adult volunteers, and each other to make their world a better place.
Group interviews are mandatory and will be held on Monday, Oct. 15 at 5:30 p.m. You will be notified of your status by Tuesday, Oct. 23.
