This week is a special week for Girl Scouts all over the world because it’s Girl Scout Spirit week! March 6-13, Girl Scouts across the nation will be celebrating the 109th birthday of Girl Scouts. It was on March 12, 1912, that Juliette Gordon Low started the first Girl Scout troop in Savannah, GA. Each year during this week, we honor her vision and legacy. During this same week, AmeriCorps is celebrating 56 years of bringing Americans together to improve lives, strengthen communities, and foster civic engagement through service and volunteering. Founded in 1965, the AmeriCorps VISTA program provides opportunities for Americans, 18 years or older, to dedicate a year of full-time service with an organization to create or expand programs designed to empower individuals and communities, especially underserved populations. Girl Scouts of Central Maryland has worked with numerous AmeriCorps VISTAs to help serve our community. Check out the videos below for an inside look on GSCM’s AmeriCorps VISTAs.
