Calling all girls and women! Girl Scouts–Arizona Cactus-Pine Council Announces First-Ever PowerUP G.I.R.L.s Event on July 14; Unprecedented 50-Plus Events Happening Simultaneously to Educate Girls, Women about Girl Scouting (Prescott area- July 14th) — In an effort to educate girls and women about the power, impact and fun of Girl Scouting, Girl Scouts–Arizona Cactus-Pine Council (GSACPC) is hosting its first-ever PowerUP G.I.R.L.s event Saturday, July 14 at more than 50 locations across the Council’s Central and Northern Arizona footprint. The free events, which will take place from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Sautrday, July 14th will have a variety of activities for girls from K-12, including interactive STEM projects. Each event will offer a taste of Girl Scouting and its safe, no-limits space designed specifically for G.I.R.L.s (Go-getters, Innovators, Risk-takers and Leaders)TM. PowerUP G.I.R.L. is also focused on engaging adult women – and not just mothers of girls! – about the benefits of volunteering for GSACPC to support girls’ experiences, be it as troop leaders, co-leaders, expert resources for troop events or programs, and even general volunteers for special events. Both girls and women will be at each event to share their adventures, talk about how Girl Scouting has positively impacted their lives and how to get involved in ones’ own neighborhood this summer and beyond. According to a recent national study by the Girl Scout Research Institute (GSRI), there is compelling evidence that Girl Scouts stand out significantly from non-Girl Scouts, demonstrating more well-rounded lifestyles and a stronger propensity for success. Compared to non-Girl Scouts, Girl Scouts are more likely to: • Exhibit strong leadership outcomes • Earn “excellent” grades • Expect to graduate college • Aspire to STEM, business, and law careers • Feel hopeful about their future The local events in the Prescott area are: • Kayla’s Hands Playground at Pioneer Park • JoAnn Fabric • Prescott Valley Public Library • Chino Valley Community Center Park
