Make the Connection
Girl Scouts Nation’s Capital and Booz Allen Hamilton join together for the ninth year to offer a mentoring program that gives Girl Scouts in grades 4-12 a head start in planning for their futures! Girls will complete various Leadership Journey activities at the events to help meet the new Award requirements.
REGISTRATION: Each event will be opened for online registration TWO MONTHS prior to the event date. Girls must register separately for each event.
QUESTIONS: Contact Council staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
Through a series of activities, girls discover the working world and what careers interest
MAKE THE CONNECTION, JR!
Science, Technology, Engineer, & Math: Oh My!
This program allows Girl Scout Juniors to take part in hands-on STEM activities as well as work with professional women in the STEM field.
ME TO WE: Teambuilding Skills
Cost $3 (free for girls who attended the first two events)
Girls and Booz Allen Hamilton mentors participate in fun outdoor activities like the Log of Death and Rushing River that teach girls how to achieve success through trust, communication, and strategy. As they conquer this challenging rope course they experience firsthand how to achieve success as part of a team.

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: http://www.gscnc.org/membership_forms.html
Girl Scouts who attend Make the Connection and bring an eligible new Girl Scout friend will receive a "Bring a Friend" patch.
