December 21, 2011
Girl Scouts of Connecticut has received a $2,000 grant from the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving to support general programming and activities offered to girls in Greater Hartford.
“We are deeply grateful to the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving for its generous gift,” said Jennifer Smith Turner, CEO, Girl Scouts of Connecticut. “With this grant, we will be able to further our mission of providing girl-led, girl-centered activities that help girls discover themselves and the world around them, connect with others, and take action to make the world a better place.”
The grant will help fund the general programs that Girl Scouts of Connecticut offers. All of these programs are a part of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, and administered through a variety of “journeys,” which are programs designed to help a Girl Scout discover, connect, or take action on one of many topics. In addition, signature programs such as Girlz R.U.L.E.TM, a specialized anti-bullying program, and Live Healthy, Lead Healthy, teaching girls healthy living skills for their lives, are also offered.
