Encuentro conference

Introduces Latinas to Girl Scouts 

On August 13-15, Girl Scouts Nation’s Capital held our 8th annual Encuentro de Chicas Latinas de las Girl Scouts. Girls spent three days learning from leaders in the Latina community. The conference is designed to inspire Latina youth to recognize their own abilities and become active in their schools and in their communities.  The girls took part in challenging activities like canoeing, kayaking, and archery, and listened to guest speakers such as Brigitta Toruno, Lily Whitesell-Carvallo, and Angela Franco.
