 Designing For Leadership: Building More Leadership for More Girls

As a Girl Scout volunteer,  you have seen how the Girl Scout Leadership Experience helps girls grow in confidence, decision-making skills and leadership traits. Much of this development is due to the generous time and effort put forth by volunteers and, on behalf of our almost 50,000 girl members, Girl Scouts of Western Ohio thanks you for your willingness to share, mentor and invest in these girls.
Because volunteers are vital to the Girl Scout program, we want to improve our services to better support and assist you. We want to know what’s working – and what isn’t; what we aren’t yet doing but should be and where we should concentrate our focus in order to make your Girl Scout volunteer experience more enjoyable and meaningful for both you and your girls. Our emphasis is not on the Girl Scout program, but on the underlying service delivery system and structure; the ways in which the council can and should be backing the work of the neighborhood-based service units and, through them, the troops and girl members.
Over the 2013 membership year we are gathering information from a variety of sources, including from YOU! You can watch this page for updates and opportunities to provide feedback.
This site includes links to the research done so far, surveys to gather additional information, and a timeline for this far-reaching project. We’ve included information on what has been accomplished thus far and will provide opportunities for you to  share your ideas. Remember – we want your feedback, both negative and positive; this is your opportunity to help us provide the best results to girls.
Here are links to some of the important documents that describe the project and our learnings:
