Raise Your Hand!

Join us at our Be Bold, Be Brave: Raise Your Hand event to learn what it means to be a Girl Scout!

Saturday, September 28 from 12 p.m.- 3 p.m. at Pembroke Mall in Virginia Beach

Sunday, September 29 from 1 p.m. - 3 p.m. at Newport News Main Library 

Leadership starts with small steps like raising your hand in class. Get tips from experts on how girls can become a super G.I.R.L—go-getter, innovator, risk-taker and leader—at this great event! We will have giveaways, exhibits with hands-on activities, book readings and of course, Girl Scout professionals ready to help you learn what it means to be a G.I.R.L! 

Raise Your Hand: The Movement

When Girl Scout Junior Alice T. noticed that boys were aggressively participating in activities at a school fair, she started to worry that girls were fading into the background. Now, Alice has a message for girls everywhere to help them have more confidence, step up and become leaders: Girl Scouts Raise Your Hand is available online. 

We will have Symone Davis from WAVY TV 10 reading excerpts from this book AND the author of Strong Girl Spirit, Terrie Nathan, reading from her book at the event!
