leadership. You put in long hours, stay patient as girls lead their own
activities, and bring fun and spirit to everything girls do.
all pays off. Because girl leadership isn't only about being class president or
volleyball captain. Not every girl will grow up to run a company, be a
politician, or manage a science lab, if that's not her passion. But every girl
can be a leader in her own life, so that she—and everyone around her—blossoms
into their full potential. A girl leader not only avoids going along with
friends who want to skip class or shoplift, but also convinces them not to do it
themselves. She supports the aspirations of other girls—no matter how lofty—even
if she doesn't share those aspirations. And she steps in when she sees others
making fun of a fellow student who doesn't find herself among the popular
leadership, Girl Scout style. That's making the world better. And that's the
difference you make in the world, one girl at a time. Thank you.

saying "thank you" will make a world of difference to your dedicated Girl Scout
