You can be a role model and have a blast doing it. Volunteer with Girl Scouts and be someone that girls can count on—the one who cheers them on, makes them laugh, and always listens when they need it. Just by being your authentic self, you can help build a community where every girl feels accepted.
You don't have to have a child of your own to get involved; all you need is unbridled enthusiasm and a passion for leading. Your local council can help get you started.
