Calling ALPFA Members to Volunteer with Girl Scouts USA to Empower Young Latinas
ALPFA, Inc. (Association of Latino Professionals For America) is excited to announce a partnership with Girl Scouts of the USA! For over 100 years, Girl Scouts of the USA has been dedicated to building girls of courage, confidence, and character. From selling cookies to camping trips and from community service projects to STEM activities, girls in Kindergarten through High School learn about themselves, connect with others, and work to make the world a better place. Core to this experience are Troop Leaders who run local troops of 10-12 girls.
If you’re in one of the following pilot chapters, we encourage you to sign-up: Austin, Boston, Chicago, Fort Worth & Dallas, Houston, Orange County, Orlando, San Antonio, Tampa, and Washington DC.
- Give Back to your Community! This is a unique opportunity to volunteer, give back to your local community, and serve as a role model and inspiration for the next generation of Latina girls
- Forge Relationships with ALPFA Members! When you sign-up, we will match 2 professional members and 1-2 student members based on location and professional interests to serve as co-leaders for a troop of 10-12 Latina girls.
- Develop your Professional Skills! Volunteering as a Girl Scout leader is a unique opportunity to develop your own leadership and professional skills. Think Girl Scouts is all about the outdoors and camping? Girl Scouts has award-winning programs in STEM, Financial Literacy, and Entrepreneurship too.
- It’s Easy! Girl Scouts recently released an online management system which helps plan meetings, troop finances, communications, and more. The time commitment required is generally 1.5 hours every other week during the school year, depending on the discretion of the Co-Leaders.
- Scholarship Opportunity! ALPFA students who commit to volunteering for two years are eligible to apply for one of ten (10) $2,000 scholarships. Apply here: http://alpfa.org/page/GSUSA_Scholars
