The Girl Scouts of NY Penn Pathways has come out in opposition of a decision earlier this week by the Boy Scouts of America to admit girls into Cub Scout dens.
CEO Julie Dale tells Finger Lakes News Radio Girl Scouts provides the best learning experience.
She points to this weekend’s first-ever Girl Scout Convention on Women’s Rights underway in Seneca Falls as a prime example of how Girl Scouts provides that learning experience.
The numbers speak for themselves. Ninety percent of female astronauts, 80 percent of female tech leaders, 75 percent of current senators and all U.S. Secretaries of State are Girl Scout alumnae.
