Girl Scouts River Valleys Offers Free Membership in Honor of International Day of the Girl

ST. PAUL, Minn., Oct. 10, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — In honor of the 10th Anniversary of International Day of the Girl on October 11, Girl Scouts of Minnesota and Wisconsin River Valleys is offering free membership for all new girl members who join between October 10-14.

International Day of the Girl is a day to spotlight girl voices, girl stories, and girl action. At Girl Scouts, we know that each girl has the power to change the community and the world, and we celebrate to give them a platform to speak out and to champion their achievements.

“At Girl Scouts, every day is the day of the girl,” said Tish Bolger, Girl Scouts’ CEO. “We’re going to shine a light on Girl Scouts who use their voices to advocate for issues they care about. From environmental issues to mental health concerns, our youth can and do lead with confidence and character. We want every family to experience the life-changing experience that is Girl Scouts.”

International Day of the Girl strives to increase awareness of issues faced by girls around the world and to promote girls’ empowerment so that girls can reach their full potential. Girl Scouts annually celebrates this important holiday, and this year, we’re pleased to join many councils nationwide in offering free girl membership in honor of this important day.

From October 10-14 new families can visit, select a K-12 girl membership, and the discount will be automatically applied.
