Girl Scouts are offering a free membership to girls and troop leaders who sign up this month
HOUSTON – The Girl Scouts of San Jacinto is offering a free membership to girls and troop leaders, who register during the month of December, the organization recently announced. The organization enables young girls to explore new interests, take on challenges, make new friendships and make lasting contributions to the community.
The opportunity to join the world’s largest girl-led organization is available for girls in Kindergarten to Grade 12. While volunteers must be at least 18 years old or have a high school diploma.
The Sempra LNG provided a grant to the organization so that every girl who resides in that jurisdiction can become a Girl Scout.
âAs a company committed to leadership development, we recognize the long-term impact of being a Girl Scout and the essential role of the organization during this extraordinary chapter of history,â said Lisa Glatch , President and COO of Sempra LNG. âPreparing a next generation of diverse leaders has never been more important and that’s exactly what Girl Scouts do. Girls’ experiences in Girl Scouting have been shown to cultivate values, social awareness, self-esteem and resilience while teaching essential life skills.
Residents of the following Texas counties are eligible for this offer: Angelina, Brazoria, Chambers, Fort Bend, Galveston, Hardin, Harris, Houston, Jasper, Jefferson, Liberty, Matagorda, Montgomery, Nacogdoches, Newton, Orange, Polk, Sabine, San Augustine, San Jacinto, Shelby, Trinity, Tyler, Walker, Waller and Wharton.
Girl Scouts of San Jacinto is the second largest Girl Scout Council in the country, serving 26 counties in Southeast Texas.
âInvesting in girls is the most profitable in terms of economic development, social progress and public health. In this way, the generosity of Sempra LNG ultimately benefits our entire community, âsaid Mary Vitek, CEO of Girl Scouts of San Jacinto. “We are very grateful to Sempra LNG for deciding to make this investment. I hope every girl in our Southeast Texas community takes this opportunity and join us for an amazing year.”
