Just for teens
A Girl Leadership Opportunity with the Board of Directors
We know that you’ve got thoughts, ideas and opinions, and we need to hear them!
We want girls who are passionate about Girl Scouting to share that love with council decision makers. Are you ready to make an impact on the ways Girl Scouting reaches your community and sister Girl Scouts?
Our board respects and values girls’ voices. Girl leaders can express and share their enthusiasm for Girl Scouts with board members, council staff and the public. This offers a rare opportunity to play a role in furthering the Girl Scout movement.
As a girl representative to the board of directors, participants can apply what they’ve learned through Girl Scouts to a real-world leadership experience. These girls are presented with opportunities to interact with members of the board to offer first-hand accounts of what Girl Scouting means to them.

GIRL SCOUTS and Project Law!
Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana recently partnered with the Chicago Bar Association Alliance for Women for a second presentation of Project Law Track, a program for girls in 7th grade and older who would like to learn more about careers in the legal field. Stay tuned for more information about future sessions.
“I loved learning all about different kinds of laws and interacting with real lawyers. I thought the mock trial was amazing and I can’t wait to participate again!” - 2011 girl participant
During the program, well-prepared Girl Scouts entered a courtroom at the United States Northern District of Illinois Court in Chicago ready to give their opening remarks, question the witnesses, analyze the facts, and reach a verdict within a reasonable doubt during a mock trial that brought the pilot to its finale. Attorneys from the Alliance for Women volunteered to assist as mentors and resources during the trial, and as the judge presiding over the proceedings, although empowered girls clearly were in charge!

Camp CEO: June 16-21, 2013
If you are age 14 or older or will be entering 9th grade in the fall, this is the perfect leadership opportunity for you ...
Discover that the women who run local companies and make important decisions every day were once teens just like you, trying to decide where to go to college and what they wanted to be.
Ask them questions as you paddle a canoe, hear their surprising stories around the campfire, and learn how the choices they made impacted their lives and contributed to their success.
In addition to powerful one-on-one sessions with these women, you'll also connect to other teen girls by participating in lots of fun camp-based activities like geocaching (high-tech scavenger hunting), swimming, team-building games, and archery.
Participate in yoga, self-defense, dressing for success, and networking workshops. Then plan and host a huge dinner party with fancy place-settings, table decorations and party food. The adult campers will participate right along with you in all these activities.
For more information, contact Aminah Abdullah at 312-416-2500, ext. 6355, or by e-mail. Applications and reference letters are due February 1, 2013.
