NEW YORK, N.Y. — Girl Scouts of the USA and Dove®, the leading personal care brand, partner to deliver Girl Scout leadership and self-esteem programming to millions of girls nationwide and abroad with the release of the latest Girl Scout leadership journey It's Your Story—Tell It! It's Your Story—Tell It! uses a storytelling theme in a fun and relevant way for girls to better understand themselves and their potential. “Through girls hearing stories, sharing their stories, trying out new roles and creating their own stories, they gain confidence and see that they can make a difference in their own lives and the lives of others” says Andrea Bastiani Archibald, Ph.D. Developmental Psychologist at Girl Scouts of the USA. Building a strong sense of self is an underlying goal of the series, which was made possible in part by a generous grant from Dove.
In Girl Scouting, the safety and security of our girl members are our primary concern. This is why Girl Scouts have guidelines that must be followed when girls sell cookies. Girls learn and practice personal protection skills and work in conjunction with adults who provide supervision and guidance for all grade levels. Adults must accompany younger Girl Scouts when they are selling, taking orders for, or delivering products. Adults oversee older Girl Scouts; they must be aware of how, when, and where the girls are selling products; be on call when girls are participating in product sales and be able to contact girls in a timely manner; be in an automobile in the area; or be present with the girls. Supervision extends to any online activity. We immediately investigate and remedy any instances where those guidelines are not followed.
