Girl Scouts mentor opportunity

ROCKLAND — There is a greatness in girls that is hard to suppress. With a supportive environment, today’s girls will become tomorrow’s role models, leaders and captains of industry.

Every girl has greatness inside her. Yet she faces barriers she can't withstand alone: a lack of role models, unhealthy images of beauty, peer pressure to not stand out, and a mean-girl culture.

With help, she is one step closer to breaking through those barriers and blossoming into her full potential. One's time as a mentor will give her the environment she needs to pursue the interests, causes, and leadership roles that are most important to her. She will learn from that being a scientist, a CEO, or a stay-at-home mom are all paths she can take to change the world. With support, she will stand up, stand out, and stand tall.

Explore volunteering opportunities in the community. Please join in Wednesday, Feb. 13, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Tradewinds in Rockland. Find out about all the opportunities that are available and hear from women who are already making a difference. Light refreshments will be served.

Girl Scouts of Maine is taking those steps everyday To Get Her There! We need help and so do the young women in the community. Support makes all the difference.
