Girl Scouts of Central Indiana is once again partnering with Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson’s office to provide the “I Promised a Girl Scout I Would Vote” curriculum. This sponsorship will make it so that all 25,000 central Indiana Girl Scouts can complete the curriculum and earn the patch for free during the months of September and October.
In earning the “I promised a Girl Scout I would vote” patch, Girl Scouts of all ages will gain a greater understanding of the election process, the importance of voting, and what it means to be an active citizen.
“Through curriculum like this, Girl Scouts are gaining crucial skills they will be able to use for the rest of their lives,” said Girl Scouts CEO, Danielle Shockey. “We want girls to have the knowledge and experience to take action on the issues they believe in.”
Girl Scouts of Central Indiana’s partnership with the Secretary of State’s office began in 2015. Since then, the curriculum has evolved and is now being offered virtually.
“I am excited by my office’s renewed partnership with Girl Scouts of Central Indiana,” said Secretary Lawson. “This program represents an opportunity for Girl Scouts across the region to gain a deeper understanding of our democratic process and will develop a generation of more informed citizens in the process.”
To find out how to complete the curriculum and earn a free patch, Girl Scouts can visit www.girlscoutsindiana.org.
We're Girl Scouts
We're 2.5 million strong—more than 1.7 million girls and 750,000 adults who believe in the power of every G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ to change the world. Our extraordinary journey began more than 100 years ago with the original G.I.R.L., Juliette Gordon “Daisy” Low. On March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia, she organized the very first Girl Scout troop, and every year since, we’ve honored her vision and legacy, building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place. We’re the preeminent leadership development organization for girls. And with programs from coast to coast and across the globe, Girl Scouts offers every girl a chance to practice a lifetime of leadership, adventure, and success.
