Across the Country, Girl Scouts Celebrate Faith during Girl Scout Week (March 9-15)

RALEIGH, N.C.— Girl Scouts and faith-based communities share an enduring tradition of Girl Scouting and spiritual expression that spans our organization’s history. Indeed, the entire Girl Scout experience is based on the Girl Scout Promise and Law, which include principles and values common to most faiths.
Girl Scouts is also proudly nonpartisan, secular, and inclusive. Our membership, which currently consists of 3 million girls and volunteers as well as over 59 million alumnae, includes women and girls of varied religious traditions.
In remaining secular, our intent is not to minimize a girl’s religious experience; to the contrary, Girl Scouts is a place where girls of all faiths can honor their spirituality while at the same time embracing the diversity of the Girl Scout Movement.
“Girl Scout Week celebrates our organization’s long history and honors the generations of girls and women it has influenced,” said Lisa Jones, Chief Executive Officer of Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines, adding, “For over a century, Girl Scouts has stayed true to the Girl Scout Promise and Law and remains passionate about building girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.”
This year during Girl Scout Week, recognized Sunday March 9 through Saturday March 15, Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines will celebrate its rich history of partnership and collaboration with faith-based communities by highlighting the My Promise, My Faith pin, which complements existing religious recognitions and allows all girls to further strengthen the connection between their faith and Girl Scouts.
Faith-based awards include religious recognitions as well as the My Promise, My Faith pin. In addition, many faith-based communities offer programs, in conjunction with Girl Scouts, that recognize local girl members. Adult volunteers from faith-based organizations partner with girls by connecting the My Promise, My Faith pin to their faith’s own religious recognitions, guiding girls through their personal faith journey and helping them understand their faith intellectually and spiritually.
When Girl Scout founder Juliette Gordon Low first assembled 18 girls from Savannah, Ga., for that first meeting on March 12, 1912, she believed all girls should be given the opportunity to develop physically, mentally and spiritually. Today, Girl Scouts is for all girls from kindergarten through high school. Wherever girls live, whatever their circumstances, Girl Scouts helps girls develop their leadership potential, connect with others, and take action to make a difference in the world.
 “Self-discovery and spiritual expression were core values from the earliest days of Girl Scouting, and these same values are a part of today’s Girl Scout Leadership program shaping girls into the future leaders of tomorrow,” shared Jones.
In addition, Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines is hosting a week of fun activities and celebrations for girls and adult members during the 2014 Girl Scout Week. In spirit week fashion, each day will have a special theme or activity to celebrate different aspects of Girl Scouting.
• Happy Birthday, Girl Scouts! (Wednesday, March 12): March 12, 2014, mark’s Girl Scouting’s 102nd birthday. Celebrate with cupcakes!  Share the story of Girl Scout founder Juliette Gordon Low.
• Letters to our Troops (Thursday, March 13): Girl Scouts are known for their community service and girls and adults are being asked to write a short letter to our military troops thanking them for their service.  All letters will be delivered with the Council’s Operation Cookie Drop deliveries in May 2013.
• Wear Your Uniform (Friday, March 14): Girls and adult members will show their Girl Scout pride while wearing their Girl Scout uniforms, clothing and accessories featuring the Girl Scout logo and mission.
 For more information about these activities or to learn how to become involved with Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines, visit or call 800-284-4475.
