GIRL SCOUTS AT DJJ

Girl Scouts at DJJ

The Metro Regional Youth Detention Center is the pilot site for Girl Scouts at the Department of Juvenile Justice. The first session was held on August 18, 2014 with DJJ staff trained as facilitators in the Girl Scouts' curriculum.

THE GIRL SCOUTS MISSION

Girl Scouts build girls of courage, confidence and character. Each member of the Girl Scouts makes the world a better place.

PROJECTED OUTCOMES OF GIRL SCOUTS AT DJJ

In Girl Scouts, girls discover the fun, friendship and power of girls together. This discovery is done through a myriad of enriching experiences such as skill-building and community service.

Via clinics, empowerment exercises and cultural exchanges, girls grow courageous and strong. Girl Scouting helps girls develop their full individual potential and helps them relate to others with increasing understanding, skill and respect. By developing values to guide their actions, Girl Scouts provide the foundation for sound decision-making. Girl Scouts help to improve society by showcasing individual girl abilities, leadership skills and cooperation with others.
