Martin Luther King Jr. Day
A Day of Community Service
More than fifty years ago, Dr. King singled out the Girl Scout Movement as "a force for desegregation." We are still a powerful force for equality and positive change as we develop the leadership skills of nearly two and a half million girls from every race and every walk of life. Our girls teach people to read, clothe and comfort the homeless, establish medical clinics, found libraries, and much more. Through their individual acts of compassionate public service, they continue Dr. King's work of transforming our world.
Some MLK Day Girl Scout Events from the past include:
GSCNC members, including our two teen board members and a DC junior girl scout, enjoyed a lively and educational Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration Breakfast on January 14, 2012 hosted by the United Planning Organization. Pictured are girl scouts with DC Mayor Gray. Speaker themes included investing in the future of our youth and spreading community service and your passions to do good. Very proud of girl scouts continuing and fostering many programs and passions to make the world a better place.
