Girl Scouts

Girl Scouts at St. Joseph are both parish and community based. Girls from Kindergarten to 12th grade are welcome to join one of the many troops that meet after school and to explore new adventures while learning how to serve their communities. Girl Scouting is a parent-volunteer-based program. Parents are needed to become leaders to accommodate girls wishing to join Girl Scouts. "In Girl Scouts, girls discover the fun, friendship, and power of girls together. Through a myriad of enriching experiences, such as extraordinary field trips, sports skill-building clinics, community service projects, cultural exchanges, and environmental stewardships, girls grow courageous and strong. Girl Scouting helps girls develop their full individual potential; relate to others with increasing understanding, skill, and respect; develop values to guide their actions and provide the foundation for sound decision-making; and contribute to the improvement of society through their abilities, leadership skills, and cooperation with others.” (Source: Girl Scout USA website) Please see www.gsnnj.org to see what Girl Scouts is all about.
