Girl Scout Leader Day
About Girl Scout Leader Day
When is Girl Scout Leader Day? This holiday is always celebrated on April 22
Girl Scout Leader Day recognizes and honors the many adult volunteers to the girl scouting program. The Girl Scouts of the United States began on March 12, 1915, when Juliette “Daisy” Gordon Low organized the first girl troop and held the first meeting. Girl Scout Leader Day began on April 22, 1982, when a flag honoring Girl Scout leaders was flown over the Capitol building in Washington, D.C. This day honors the thousands of volunteers who help to make the Girl Scout program a success.
Being a leader of our nation’s youth is both a challenging and rewarding task. Leaders play an important role in education and teaching. They are shaping and molding young ladies to be successful citizens and leaders in today’s modern world. As leaders, they are also role models for the girls to look up to.
Celebrate today, by thanking the girl scout leaders in your troop and area. Send a note, or card of thanks. Girl Scout groups can hold parties or have a cake at meetings. Gifts are not a requirement or an expectation. One of the ways girl scouts can thank their leaders is to do their best in everything they do. Your leaders get their reward by seeing you grow into outstanding citizens and human beings!
