Girls learn and practice key people skills including skillful introductions, the art of conversation and the power of a hand shake.  As they practice, they realize that body language and tone affect how they communicate much more than the words they use—it’s not what you say but how you say it. The day ends with a fun fashion show where girls identify what NOT to wear, leaving the day ready to make the right impressions.

The week of each event you will receive an email from the GSCNC Program Department confirming your registration and giving you details about the specific event location and logistics.  We encourage girls to attend as many of the events as possible, in order to experience the full Make the Connection program.  Girls who participate in the first 3 events will receive priority for the final service and celebration event.

Bring a Friend!

If you would like to bring a non-Girl Scout friend to the event, this would be an excellent opportunity for you to introduce her to Girl Scouting!  Your friend will need to become a Girl Scout in order to attend the event.  She can sign up here: 

Girl Scouts who attend Make the Connection and bring an eligible new Girl Scout friend will receive a "Bring a Friend" patch.
