In 1998, Kappa Delta began a national collaboration with Girl Scouts, an organization of over three million girls. With this partnership, Kappa Delta became the first and only National Panhellenic Conference group to adopt the Girl Scouts as a national philanthropy.
Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place. The same could be said for Kappa Delta as it relates to young women. With common values and a commitment to leadership development, Kappa Delta and Girl Scouts are sisters at heart.
Girl Scouts provides Kappa Delta members opportunities for face-to-face volunteering. Each year, Kappa Deltas across the country devote over 125,000 hours to working with Girl Scouts in their communities. Popular KD Girl Scout events are self-esteem workshops, campus tours, International Girls Day celebrations and anti-bullying workshops.
Kappa Delta collegiate volunteers get to see firsthand the difference they make in girls’ lives while learning important leadership skills in the process.
Chapters across the nation have the freedom to choose what activities they participate in with the girl scouts from their area. In Flagstaff, we have chosen a variety of options including organizing a father-daughter dance, leading campus tours, writing letters and creating friendship bracelets, and helping with the annual sale of girl scout cookies.
It is so important to us that Kappa Delta and Girl Scouts across the world understand their value and full potential as a woman. It is a passion of ours to not only create a "big sister/little sister" bond, but to instill confidence, trust, and knowledge within this community. By serving as role models and teaching these young women leadership, retention, growth, purpose, and much more, we help build girls of courage and ambition. Doing so, we build a support system that brings the community together and upholds our values of honesty, integrity, and friendship.
