A Legacy of Inclusion
For more than 100 years, the Girl Scouts has remained steadfast in its mission to help girls build courage, confidence, and character, and go on to make the world a better place. Many women can relate to a time in their childhood when they wanted to join a local Girl Scout troop.
We visit with Girl Scout troop leader, Edith, and her daughter, Linda. Edith shares her motivation to start a Girl Scout troop for girls like her daughter, who has special needs. Using her Special Ed background, Edith helps troop members succeed by taking an activity and breaking it down so it’s easier for the young girls to achieve. Edith is a role model for parents everywhere.
