Shop and Share

As part of Girl Scout’s historic collaboration with the Kentucky Coalition Against Domestic Violence, Girl Scouts are helping Kentucky's First Lady, Glenna Bevin, collect much needed items for the spouse abuse shelters in our council area.

Troops sign up to volunteer to manage a booth on February 3, 2018 for two hours at a Kroger stores in your area. Each spouse abuse center has a list of needed items that you will be able to give to customers coming in the store.  The costumer drops off the item to you after it is purchased.  Other volunteers pick up the donations at the end of the day.  Kroger has furnished a free patch to all participating Girl Scouts.

Stand Beside Her

Created by Girl Scouts Heart of the South, The National Stand Beside Her Movement is a call to action initiative to mentor, support and develop women and girls; to end comparison and competition and create more collaboration and support for one another.

Starting in childhood girls are inundated with negative messages and behaviors that prevent them from building healthy relationships and ideals about their potential.

Let’s create a world where all women and girls are appreciated for their talent, strengths and uniqueness.

Green Dot for Girl Scouts

The Green Dot Program is an anti-bullying, violence prevention program created by Dr. Dorothy Edwards. The Green Dot violence Prevention Strategy was initially developed in a college setting.  Dorothy Edwards  developed it here at UK and served for five years as the founding Director of the Violence Intervention and Prevention Center  at the University of Kentucky.  From there Dr Edwards adapted the program for high school students and then for middle school students. 

The Green Dot program’s goal is to help Girl Scouts learn how to safely spot and identify a bully;  and how to help another child who is being bullied.  Girls learn to be active role models for healthy relationships and create an environment where Girl Scouts do not accept bullying, teasing and aggression as the norm but they become active participants in prevention.


Promise to Vote

Girl Scouts in an all-inclusive, non-partisan organization. Promise to Vote is a Girl Scout Service Project that is non-partisan. The purpose of the Promise to Vote Service Projcet is to raise awareness about the importance of voting and community involvement.

Girl Scouts of Kentucky's Wilderness Road proudly partners with the Kentucky Secretary of State's Office, the Kentucky League of Women Voters and the Kentucky's Historical Society to bring the Promise to Vote Program to Girl Scouts across the state! 

Voting is the ultimate form of community activism, the message that voters give when casting a vote is, "I count and I can make a difference!" Young people can count too, when the adults in their lives vote.
