New Research Shows Majority of Parents and Volunteers See Benefits For Girls and Adults
Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles (GSGLA) is making its end-of-summer push for girls and adult volunteers to join Girl Scouts, the country's preeminent leadership development organization for girls. With families already thinking about how to allocate their time during the new school year, Girl Scouts has released new data showing the organization's benefits for both girls and volunteers.
Results of a summer 2014 pulse poll conducted with more than 3,500 volunteers and parents of Girl Scouts show positive effects on members of all ages. Ninety-seven percent of parents agree that Girl Scouts has been a positive activity for their daughter, that she has had fun and exciting new experiences (95 percent), and that she has learned or tried something new (96 percent). In addition, 94 percent of parents say that because of Girl Scouts their daughter feels special, has more friends (95 percent), and is happier (89 percent).
