The future is bright: GSGLA Girl Scouts show passion for sustainability during Women in Construction Week
To celebrate Women in Construction Week, Fortune 500 construction and development company Skanska hosted a two-hour virtual creative competition for GSGLA Girl Scouts in which girls were challenged to dream up, "build", and present their own sustainable construction plan for LA. Working in teams, girls took on roles of project managers, developers, architects, and marketing and branding consultants in order to plan and pitch their projects to female leaders of Skanska.
GSGLA is donating packages of Girl Scout cookies to Los Angeles
Unified School District in support of its Grab & Go program to
help feed those who are food insecure. Los Angeles Unified plans to
include the cookies in meals available at its 63 Grab & Go Food
Service Centers at school sites across the district, where students,
families, and anyone else in need of a nutritious meal can receive two
meals per person, per day.
In challenging times, our Girl Scout grit shines the brightest.
That’s why we’re prepared to be a source of consistency for you and
your girl when you need it the most. As we navigate through the
COVID-19 pandemic together, we’re working hard to ensure your girl has
access to the Girl Scout experience she knows and loves in a way she
can experience right now—through virtual and at-home
