This September the Girl Scouts are launching a new program, the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. All girls ages 5-17, along with a parent/guardian, are invited to learn more about the new program at the Registration Night on Thursday, Sept. 11, 6-7 p.m., at Winterquist Elementary Cafeteria. Cost to join is $10. Scholarships are available.

New books for girls and adult volunteers provide ideas for sequencing experiences, discussions, and earning awards. Activities encourage girls to take active roles in their communities; make the most of their strengths; and act with integrity and compassion.

"From the very beginning, Girl Scouts has been about developing girls' leadership. Now we're doing it better than ever with national, outcomes-based program activities," said Leigh Ann Davis, CEO of Girl Scouts of Minnesota and Wisconsin Lakes and Pines.

Adult volunteers are needed to guide girls and assist with events. Training is provided.

Girl Scouting is the foremost authority on girls' leadership development. To get involved in Girl Scouting or learn more about the new Leadership Experience, contact Leann Fetter, 218-878-7966 or visit www.girlscouts.org .
