The world has changed since 1912 and the founding of Girl Scouting. Our commitment to girls and our focus on providing a positive and quality leadership experience is unwavering. We must provide an experience that girls need … in a way they want. We must focus our limited resources of today on what matters most in order to deliver our promise to girls for the next 100 years.
Girl Scouts of North East Ohio has embarked on a learning-based process for creating and implementing breakthrough strategies called Strategic Learning. Led by Board Member Cathy Lippert, this is an inclusive process, which means volunteers, staff and community members are encouraged to participate.
We are so proud of the 30 volunteers and staff members who have made a commitment to making this important plan a reality. Many more of you will contribute through surveys and focus groups. Together, we have the answers and the ability to create the strategy that will serve today’s girls and produce tomorrow’s leaders.
Honoring the history of Girl Scouts of North East Ohio and the importance of the democratic process and responsibility of customers and stakeholders to engage and influence the process, communication will be transparent, mutually respectful, and ongoing.
We believe this the right process at just the right time in our Council’s history. It will enable us to strengthen our programs and focus our resources on the most relevant services for our members.
