Day 10 – Girl Leadership

Girl Scouts
Day 10: Girl Scouts of the USA
What inspired you to become a leader?
When girls embrace their inner leader, there are no limits to what can be accomplished!
#GirlLeaders #LeadLikeAGirlScout
Twitter Chat 1-2pm E1T

For over 100 years, Girl Scouts of the USA has empowered girls to develop leadership skills for the good of their communities and our world. Still, even in 2016, there are girls across the globe whose potential is not being fulfilled because they don’t have opportunities to lead. In fact, 62 million girls worldwide don’t have access to education, let alone leadership programming like that offered by Girl Scouts.

Together, we have the power and responsibility to make sure girls around the world have opportunities to realize their leadership potential, regardless of where they come from.

Together, letcapture’s empower girls to harness their inner leader to make the world a better place for us all.

Today, we are calling on you to identify and embrace your inner G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ to make a difference in your community.

 

Here are some actions to take now:

  1. Reflect on your own G.I.R.L. leadership experiences and whether you identify as a go-getter, innovator, risk-taker, or leader—or as more than one!
  2. Share a photo on social media showing how you lead like a G.I.R.L., using #IDG2016 and #GirlsforGirls.
  3. Join us for our TWO Twitter Chats! Today – from 1-2pm and tomorrow – on IDG 2016 – from 12:30-2pm! Let’s share exciting ways to encourage others to take the lead!
  4. Join Girl Scouts and live every day as a go-getter, innovator, risk-taker, and leader—and make a difference in your world.

Day 9 – Speak Up

Here at Girls on the Run, we use a concept called Star Power to help girls to recognize and access that potential.  EIMG_0553very girl has a bright, shining Star inside of herself that makes her unique, strong, and happy.  Negative thoughts, experiences, and obstacles can be like clouds that cover up our Stars and make us feel like less than what we are.  Sometimes, we can activate our Star Power and blow these clouds away on our own, and sometimes we need help.

Let’s activate her #StarPower and share our stories!

Each of us is #BornToShine!

Day 2 – Global Girl Data Movement

The world’s 1.1 billion girls are part of a large and vibrant global generation poised to take on the future. But there is gap in our understanding about girls’ lives and what girls need to succeed in their communities. That’s why UNICEF is calling on the global community to collect, identify, and track progress for girls. They are building a movement for #GirlData!

Here is how you can help! 

On 8 June 2016, Aber Beatrice, 5, photographed in the restaurant that her mother owns in Magri, South Sudan.   “Can you write your name?” Aber asked, “and hers, and hers,” making sure all the names were written down. Then she gave her mother’s telephone number, which she wanted to show she could recall from memory. “I can write my own name, and my mother’s” and then proceeded to put them in the note book. Born in South Sudan just before independence, her family had returned from exile in Uganda where her father had met her mother. Ida spoke with the type of confidence we had discovered in Aber, and an even brighter smile when she spoke of Ida’s future. From the income of the small family restaurant Ida sends Aber to school, and hopes she will even go to university overseas once she has finished high school. “I want to be a doctor” Aber says, and then adds “to help the people here in Magri. We have a doctor in Magri. His name is David. He is a very nice man.”

 UNICEF engaged over 2,000,000 young U-Reporters across 30 countries to end violence against girls. Nearly 1,500,000 reported that violence against girls is a problem in their community and 100,000 U-Reporters are acting in their community to stop this violence.
