Cool Women are consummate role models for girls, and the courage,
confidence, and character of our inspirational Emerging Leader Girl
Scouts embody our mission.
Generous supporters donated $128,000 for programs that will empower
today’s Girl Scouts to be the Cool Women of tomorrow. Special thanks
to the Cool Women alums who jointly matched $25,000 of the gifts.
Former CEO Jo Dee Jacob, a Cool Woman of 2016, shared the origins of
the Cool Women program during this inspirational event. We reminisced

Gold Award Girl Scout Ana De Almeida Amaral of Chula Vista.
