Girl Scout Member (Former Employee) – Olympia, WA – January 31, 2014
Helped me grow into the young woman I am today. There is not much more to say, other than that I made some lifelong friends as well as memories in the 8 or so years I was a member of Girl Scouts. It helped me overcome many of my social fears and anxieties, which allowed me to express myself. Few experiences have been quite as valuable.
Scout and Leader (Former Employee) – Walkertown, NC – April 20, 2018
After 12 years of scouting I had to give it up for two reasons: 1) my work schedule was no longer conducive to it and 2) the girls changed. They were longer interested in anything but playing games, boys, trashy clothing trends and boys (and these are 10 year olds). It got to the point that I felt like each meeting was a waste of my time and that I was a once a week babysitter for the parents to have a free hour or two. Than you add having to pay for my own background check to see if I even qualify to be a leader! Nope! I'm done! Don't get me wrong, I miss doing it. I just couldn't keep it up with the way things were at the time. Maybe things are different now. I don't know.
