Troop 3480 Needs World Thinking Day Coordinator

worldThinkingDay2015AwardAsalaamu Alaikum

World Thinking Day is a Girl Scout tradition that occurs each year on February 22, when girls participate in activities and projects with global themes to honor their sister Girl Guides and Girl Scouts in other countries. World Thinking Day not only gives girls a chance to celebrate international friendships, it is also a reminder that Girl Scouts of the USA is part of a global community of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts in nearly 150 countries. Our Service Unit Thinking Day event will be either February 22 or March 6, 2015.

The coordinator will work with girls and troop leaders to:

  • select a country of interest,
  • learn about the country through activities, research, presentations or trips,
  • organize the troop presentation, which includes SWAPS, food & drink, and a short presentation

We need one or more parents to help with the planning and execution of the World Thinking Day event or the troop will not participate this year. Please email Sis. Kesha at keshabdulm [at] gmail [dot] com or Sis. Alia at alia [dot] kemet [at] gmail [dot] com if you are interested or have additional questions.
