GSLI/National Convention Delegates

We're inviting you to apply for a spot as a National Delegate for the Girl Scout Leadership Institute (GSLI) at the 53rd Girl Scout National Convention! From Oct. 16-19, 10 delegates will represent the council in Salt Lake City, Utah, and spend a few exciting days with girls and women from across the country discussing the theme "Discover, Connect, Take Action: Girls Change the World." 

As part of the GSLI, girls will:
  • get the latest information on chosen issues from experts in the field
  • work together on solutions with girls from around the globe
  • learn techniques for innovation, advocacy and planning
  • return home ready to make a specific impact in their communities and councils.
The GSLI experience will give each girl the opportunity to make new friends, develop important skills, learn about new planning processes, and take advantage of a support system that will be there to meet her needs - all in a fun and engaging way. 

We will be joined by speakers and entertainers, including newsmakers, leaders, policy makers and celebrities from around the world as we converge to celebrate and advocate on behalf of girls. Join us for stimulating sessions and numerous opportunities for personal and professional development, networking and FUN! 

Girls must be under 17 years old in October to apply. Applications are due by May 15, 2014. Please e-mail completed applications to zschwartz@girlscoutsgcnwi.org or mail to 20 S. Clark St., Suite 200, Chicago, IL 60603.

GIRL SCOUTS and Project Law Track!

Project Law Track is a series of interactive sessions that will introduce you to the fascinating field of law! Attorneys with the Chicago Bar Association's Alliance for Women committee and teen Girl Scouts worked together to design four exciting sessions, each of which will focus on a different facet of the practice of law. Learn whether courtrooms are really like what you see on the big screen and what it takes to have a career in law, then plan and stage your very own mock trial!

Meet and work side-by-side with female lawyers who specialize in all areas of the exciting world of law - corporate lawyers, litigators, intellectual property lawyers, immigration attorneys and prosecutors - just to name a few! Read more about Project Law Track and apply below.

Camp CEO: June 15-20, 2014

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 campceo@girlscoutsgcnwi.org.
