PGMA Girl Scout Troop 3480 is looking for troop leaders. We invite our sisters in Islam who are interested in the opportunity to mentor Muslim girls to join our group of 10 dedicated troop leaders.
The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) said: One who guides to something good has a reward similar to that of its doer. [Muslim].
Who Can Be a Girl Scout Troop Leader?
You don’t have to have a daughter or be a mother at all. You don’t need prior experience in teaching or instructing children. You do need to be tenacious, caring and dedicated to imparting the beauty of Islamic life to girls in your community. You do need to have the desire to help girls become leaders. You do need to aspire to guide girls to something good.
Every girl has the ability to lead, but only one girl in five believes she can. A lack of role models, unhealthy images of beauty, peer pressure to not stand out, and a mean-girl culture are just some of the obstacles that stand between girls and their full potential. These same societal pressures impact Muslim girls.
We know that with strong Muslim women role models and support, girls are one step closer to achievement. Your time as a troop leader will provide girls the free and safe environment they need to pursue their interests, causes, and leadership roles, all in an Islamic setting. With your support girls will stand up, stand out, and stand tall. Oh yeah, and have a lot of fun too!
Become a Girl Scout Troop Leader and guide girls toward building their faith, courage, confidence and character! InshaAllah, these girls will be empowered to make the world a better place. If this mission resonates with you, please contact Troop Manager Alia at alia [dot] kemet [at] gmail [dot] com.
PGMA Girl Scout Troop 3480 currently consists of 47 girls and 10 troop leaders who volunteer their time, energy and resources. Due to the high demand for scouting in our community, there is a waiting list for girls in kindergarten through third grade. With additional leaders, the troop will be able to accept more girls who are interested in scouting, inshaAllah!
A SPECIAL NOTE TO PARENTS:
It is very important that you bring your daughter to the meetings on time. We meet on Fridays from 6 – 7:30pm. Your daughter may be very disappointed if she misses parts of her meeting. We urge you to do your best to help us teach our girls the importance of time management, efficiency and effectiveness! JazakumAllah Khair.
