Annual Report 2011 | Girl Scouts–Arizona Cactus-Pine Council

  2. 2. GIRL SCOUT PROMISE GIRL SCOUT LAW On my honor, I will try: To serve God and my country, To help people at all times, And to live by the Girl Scout Law. I will do my best to be honest and fair, friendly and helpful, considerate and caring, courageous and strong, and responsible for what I say and do, and to respect myself and others, respect authority, use resources wisely, make the world a better place, and be a sister to every Girl Scout.
  3. 3. 3 GSACPCANNUALREPORT2011 OUR MISSION Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place.
  4. 4. 4 GSACPCANNUALREPORT2011 We are pleased to present to you our 2011 Annual Report – a summary of the dreams and accomplishments of this past year. Yet, as you hold this report in your hands, it is now 2012, and we are celebrating full-tilt as we mark the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouting in the United States. With that in mind, this year’s Annual Report takes you on a larger journey – a journey that reflects on the significance not only of the previous year, but also on the phenomenal first century of the Girl Scouts movement. March 12, 2012 marked the anniversary of the day Juliette Gordon Low – having recently returned from England – made a phone call to a cousin in Savannah, Georgia. Even now, 100 years later, you can hear the excitement in her words: "I've got something for the girls of Savannah, and all of America, and all the world, and we're going to start it tonight!" The passion Juliette sparked that night has never diminished, and the outlook for girls has never been better. As you flip through the pages of this report, you will see a timeline that starts in Juliette’s day, and shares the history of Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA), as well as the history of our own Girl Scouts–Arizona Cactus-Pine Council (GSACPC). There are many peak moments – for example, you’ll see a marker that shows the day in 1938 in which our movement reached a half-million members. Now, as we close the books on 2011, we can proudly report that GSACPC has served more than 25,000 girls here in Arizona; GSUSA reaches more than 2.3 million girls annually; and according to a recent study, we now know that more than 59 million adult American women have had Girl Scouting in their lives. That same study, released by our national organization just this year, also vividly demonstrates the undeniable positive A LETTER FROM THE CEO & BOARD CHAIR I've got something for Savannah,andallofAm all the world, and we'
  5. 5. 5 GSACPCANNUALREPORT2011 effect of Girl Scouts in the United States. The study entitled “Girl Scouting Works: The Alumnae Impact Study,” finds that women who have been Girl Scouts are 63% more likely to consider themselves confident and capable. Girl Scout alumnae report a significantly higher household income and a whopping 77% are regular voters. (To read the full study, visit We are empowering girls to be leaders in their businesses, communities and homes, which was precisely Juliette’s goal 100 years ago. That sense of empowerment and purpose underpins everything we do at Arizona Cactus-Pine. It is the driving force behind our Campaign for Girls in Arizona, which began in earnest in 2011. Through this Campaign, we will dramatically expand the reach of Girl Scouting in Arizona, serving an additional 10,000 girls throughout Arizona with particular emphasis on populations that have traditionally been underserved. We will provide girls with a wide range of programs that address our key leadership areas: STEM education (science, technology, engineering and math), Financial Literacy, Healthy Living, Global Citizenship, and Environmental Leadership. This campaign will also achieve what we believe will be a first in Arizona: a Leadership Center for Girls and Women. We firmly believe that when we achieve gender balance in leadership – when young women and young men stand equally, shoulder-to-shoulder to face the issues of our world – we will take an immense step toward creating the world we would all like to live in: one that incorporates the Girl Scout values of inclusion, careful thought, personal insight and global cooperation. We are deeply grateful for the support you have extended to us during the past year, and can’t wait to engage you in our vision for a joyful and collaborative future! r the girls of merica,and 're going to Tamara Woodbury Chief Executive Officer Margaret Serrano-Foster Board Chair
  6. 6. 6 GSACPCANNUALREPORT2011 100 YEARS OF GIRL SCOUTING We had an extraordinary year of growth in 2011, accomplishment and new dreams for the future of Girl Scouting in Arizona. It was also a year of preparation for and celebration of our 100th anniversary. On March 12, 2012, we celebrated the Girl Scouts 100th anniversary with a formal pinning ceremony for our Honorary Troop at the State Capitol—Troop 1920. This troop, named in recognition of the year in which women in the United States gained the right to vote, is a group of female legislators with the special mission to continue as a strong voice for girls and women at the state level. At this ceremony, we celebrated how, in 1912, Juliette Gordon Low founded Girl Scouts to provide girls with the opportunity to develop physically, mentally, and spiritually. Girl Scouts hiked, played basketball, went on camping trips, learned how to tell time by the stars, and studied first aid. In the 100 years since, Girl Scouts has changed with the times, but our vision remains the same: to build leaders with courage, confidence and character. Watch how we have grown over the years, and let’s see where we can go together—as Girl Scouts. Arizona Governor Jan Brewer marks the 100th anniversary with legislators and Girl Scouts at the Arizona State Capitol.
  7. 7. 1910s March 12, 1912 Girl Scouts founder Juliette Gordon Low begins first “Girl Guide” troop in US history. February 14, 1912 Arizona becomes the 48th state of the USA. The population in Phoenix is 11,300. 1913 The name of the organization informally changes from “Girl Guides” to “Girl Scouts” and the first official Girl Scout handbook, “How Girls Can Help Their Country” becomes available. 1916 Maxie Dunning of Prescott, Arizona hears about the Girl Scouts, acquires a handbook, and begins a Girl Scout Troop. 1916 The Golden Eaglet of Merit Award (The highest award to be earned by a Girl Scout) is created. 1914 World War I begins. Girl Scouts learn about food production and conservation, sell war bonds, work in hospitals, and collect peach pits for use in gas mask filters. 1914 The Trefoil design is patented as the official membership symbol. 22 proficiency badges are in existence. June 10, 1915 Girl Scouts was incorporated under the laws of the District of Columbia. Juliette Gordon Low was elected National President of the Girl Scouts. 1918 Mable Wester-Wick of Ajo, Arizona begins the first officially registered troop of Arizona. 1915 National membership dues of 25¢ are adopted. Membership reaches 200 troops and 5,000 girls. January 16, 1919 The Golden Eaglet¸ a black and white, silent feature film about Girl Scouting is shown in theaters across the country.
  8. 8. 8 GSACPCANNUALREPORT2011 Girl Scouts–Arizona Cactus-Pine Council sets goals that reflect our most deeply held values. We had a year of great success in 2011, where goals were met, and great strides toward future achievements were taken. Our goals fall into five key categories: Membership, Volunteers, Programming, Organizational Advancement, and Organizational Leadership. A YEAR REVIEW 11,147 Adult Volunteers 25,257 Girl Members 136 Silver Awardees 23 Gold Awardees 293 BronzeAwardees 2,951,802 3,904 Boxes of Cookies Sold Girls Attended Camp
  9. 9. 1920s 1920 Girl Scout membership includes 100 Girl Scout Councils, 3,000 troops and 70,000 girl members nationally. 1921 Fay Probst begins Troop 1 in Phoenix, Arizona, the first troop in the Phoenix Area. 1923 Alice Marshall begins Troop 2 at Trinity Cathedral Church in Phoenix, Arizona. Jean Clark was in this troop, and later took over Fay Probst’s Troop 1. January 17, 1927 Juliette Gordon Low passes away. A memorial fund is established to support Girl Scouts projects and events. 1922 Girls informally begin selling cookies in various councils across the country for 25¢ to 35¢ per box. 1924 Norman Rockwell draws Girl Scout cover for Life Magazine.
  10. 10. 10 GSACPCANNUALREPORT2011 GOAL Girl Scout membership is available and accessible to all community and population groups. OUTCOMES In 2011, like other years, we focused on providing the Girl Scout experience to even more girls in our community—and we succeeded. In spite of a declining economy and multiple pressures on families, we were able to reach 3.4% more Girl Scouts in our jurisdiction compared to 2010, with a total of 25,257 girl members by the close of 2011. In 2011, we expanded our reach to include girls who had previously been under-served, particularly girls on the Navajo Nation. In recent years, Girl Scouts on the Navajo Nation received mostly staff-run, short-term programming. In dramatic contrast, membership increased by 15% on the Navajo Nation in 2011, with 95% of the programming provided year-round and delivered by local leadership. (Local leadership is of special significance: girls see adults they know, trust and respect and these adults are able to deliver Girl Scout programming within the context of local cultures.) Also, using data from The Arizona Department of Education, we have been able to identify areas where Girl Scouting is a relatively unknown concept, and have provided Girl Scouting and adult development in those areas. All Girl Scout Journeys are now available in English and Spanish, and efforts to engage girls in diverse groups are improving. Through pilot programs such as the Latina Leadership Series, council staff members are now developing a deliberate strategy to reach Latina girls and adult volunteers. This pilot is part of a larger effort to effectively build capacity within our council to reach more girls in diverse groups. MEMBERSHIP
  11. 11. 1930s 1936 Firstnationallyfranchised Girl Scout Cookie sale. 1936 Maricopa Girl Scout Council is formed, with Alice Marshall as first President. Membership totals 7 troops and 134 girls. 1938 Girl Scout membership reaches 500,000. More than 1 million boxes of cookies sold. 1932 March 12 is designated as the official Girl Scouts birthday.
  12. 12. 12 GSACPCANNUALREPORT2011 GOAL The council sustains a volunteer workforce that is diverse, inclusive and meets the needs of our membership. OUTCOMES Every year, we strive to increase the number of volunteers in leadership and advisory roles with an emphasis on expanding diversity; year by year, we see a steady rise in diversity among our volunteers. In 2011, we saw nearly 1,000 additional adult volunteers join our council. Additionally, we seek to better respond to the needs of our potential adult volunteers and Girl Scout parents. To that end, we have increased the number of staff members who are bilingual in Spanish/English to work directly with our volunteers. In an effort to continue engaging all potential volunteers, we have also provided sign language interpreters for adults attending training meetings to ensure they are receiving all the information they need to be successful. We have also supplied a sound amplification device for one particular adult with a hearing impairment who did not use sign language or read lips. VOLUNTEERS
  13. 13. 1940s December 7, 1941 The United States is attacked at Pearl Harbor and the US enters WWII. Girl Scouts become involved, operating bicycle courier services, investing more than 48,000 hours in Farm Aid projects, collecting fat and scrap metal, and growing Victory Gardens. 1940 The first record of a Girl Scout cookie sale in Arizona. 414 boxes sold. 1940 The Curved Bar is adopted as the highest award a Girl Scout can receive. 1942 The first Arizona Girl Scout Camp opens in Prescott. Dues are $10.50 per week. 1944 1 million members register in Girl Scouting nationwide 1947 The name of the organization officially changes to Girl Scouts of the United States of America. 1948 The U.S. Postal Service issues a three-cent stamp honoring Juliette Gordon Low. 750,000 stamps were sold in Savannah, Georgia on the first day of issue.
  14. 14. 14 GSACPCANNUALREPORT2011 GOAL Girl Scout Programs empower girls to discover who they are, connect to their communities, and take action to make the world a better place. OUTCOMES Throughout 2011, we worked hard to provide engaging and enriching Girl Scout leadership experiences to girls, and it paid off: more than 8,000 girls participated in one or more Girl Scout programs in 2011. All programming in 2011, whether in a girl’s community or at camp, tapped into our five core program areas: STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math), Healthy Living, Global Citizenship, Financial Literacy and Environmental Leadership. »» STEM | In 2011, Girl Scouts from across our council engaged in activities that build girls’ capacity and confidence in these crucial fields. From math and science workshops at the Arizona Science Center and award winning participation in State-level Lego robotics competitions, our Girl Scouts are well on their way to becoming the future scientists, engineers and great thinkers our world needs. »» Healthy Living | Events like “Urban Survival” taught Girl Scouts fire, home, water and recreation safety, while other programs—like “Baby Camp”—taught pregnant and parenting moms how to care for themselves while learning important parenting and life skills lessons at camp. »» Global Citizenship | Through workshops like “Getting to know the Navajo” at the Heard museum, Girl Scouts learned about other cultures, while other presentations, like the “Oxford Youth Leadership Program,” give girls the tools to tackle challenging social issues, and make our world a better place. PROGRAMMING & DIRECT SERVICES
  15. 15. 1950s 1952 The March 1952 issue of Ebony magazine reports: "Girl Scouts in the South are making steady progress toward breaking down racial taboos." 1953 419 cartons of cookies are sold in Arizona, netting $8,000. 1953 GSUSA purchases Juliette Gordon Low’s birthplace in Savannah, Georgia. 1957 3 million members are registered in the Girl Scouts. 1956 Our Cabana dedicated in Cuernavaca, Mexico.
  16. 16. 16 GSACPCANNUALREPORT2011 »» Financial Literacy | Girls learned the importance of saving, money management and budgeting in 2011 by experiencing activities like “GE Teach Kids to Save—Financial Literacy for Girl Scouts.” Notably, more girls in our council than ever before participated in the largest girl-led business in the world: the Girl Scout Cookie Program. »» Environmental Leadership | Thousands upon thousands of Girl Scouts made a lasting impact on their environment through our “Girl Scouts Forever Green” initiatives. In one program called “It’s in the Bag,” Girl Scouts have organized their communities to prevent more than 5 million plastic bags from entering our landfills. While 2011 undoubtedly brought great successes in direct services at GSACPC, we continue to look to the future of Girl Scout programming—specifically, we strive to understand how we can serve even more girls, and how to offer activities that keeps girls in Girl Scouting. For example, through analysis of retention data in 2011, it became clear that a large number of girls drop out of Girl Scouts in the 3rd and 6th grades. We look forward to understanding what kind of programming girls in these age groups enjoy most, and focus on providing these and other program opportunities that will keep girls of all ages engaged in Girl Scouts. To ensure we offer fun programming that girls enjoy, we have continued our tradition of evaluating girls’ experiences in Girl Scout activities in 2011. As in previous years, we hired an Evaluation Consultant, who will focus on streamlining our evaluation process. From the methodology used to the data tracking system implemented, evaluations of programs will become an even stronger tool in tailoring program offerings to fit what girls enjoy and need to be successful in the real world. In a further effort to connect more girls to the Girl Scout Leadership Experience (, we are emphasizing the variety of ways girls may participate. We are taking special care to offer more travel opportunities, camp sessions, and multiday programs (series) for girls. Programs like these offer all Girl Scouts (including Individual Girl Members— girls without a troop) enriching programming that provide flexibility, while building each Girl Scout’s sense of belonging.
  17. 17. 1960s 1964 Shadow Rim Ranch Camp in Payson, Arizona is purchased. 1966 “Piper” project. Membership led by actress Debbie Reynolds. 1962 50th Birthday of Girl Scouts of the USA. 1963 Name changed to Arizona Cactus-Pine Girl Scout Council. 1967 Girl Scouts membership reaches over 3.9 million. Membership in Phoenix is 18,986 girls.
  18. 18. 18 GSACPCANNUALREPORT2011 GOAL As the evidence-based authority in leadership development for girls and young women, the council is progressive in advocacy and fund development. OUTCOMES Relevant research is now an integrated part of all areas of work regarding Organizational Advancement. All donor appeals– from the case statement for the Leadership Center for Girls and Women at Camp Sombrero to the annual and alumnae appeals–incorporate the latest Girl Scout Research Institute (GSRI) findings regarding girls’ unique leadership vision; the ways girls consume media, as well as the way girls are portrayed in the media; and the ways in which adult community leaders embody the spirit and principles defined by our Promise and Law. The results are reflected in our numbers: in 2011, we grew our donor base while raising an additional $1 million. We saw a significant increase in the number of grants awarded to GSACPC, and our Women and Young Women of Distinction: World Awards event was our best ever, with increased attendance by key community members and a 40% increase in revenue. In 2011 we saw a dramatic increase in the number and type of mentions of Girl Scouting in Arizona media. GSACPC has significantly expanded its reach via social and traditional media. One of the year’s highlights is the creation of a large library of videos, accessible on the landing page for GSACPC’s website ( These strategies, aligned with the growing Campaign for Girls in Arizona, have positioned Girl Scouts as a strong community player in Arizona, in turn, increasing public understanding of our programs and the work we do. ORGANIZATIONAL ADVANCEMENT
  19. 19. 1970s 1970 Willow Springs Camp in Prescott, Arizona is purchased. 1972 New words to Promise and Law. 1978 Dues now $3.00 1975 123 million + boxes of Girl Scouts cookies are sold. 1973 Membership opens to 6-year-olds 1975 Girl Scout members elect the first African American National Girl Scout President, Gloria D. Scott.
  20. 20. 20 GSACPCANNUALREPORT2011 ORGANIZATIONAL LEADERSHIP GOAL The council is recognized and valued for its leadership in innovation, collaboration and organizational excellence. OUTCOMES Through a time of momentous change at GSACPC, we have stayed true to the principles we value most – the principles embodied in the concepts of Leadership from the Inside Out. We have sustained and recommitted to our practices of circles, reflection and ceremony in an inclusive and co-generational environment, which, in turn, has allowed us to increase achievement while preserving the well-being of each individual staff member and volunteer. It is never a flawless journey; yet the journey itself delivers the greatest learning. In 2011, the leadership team at GSACPC completed an assessment instrument which expanded our capacity to evaluate mission delivery within the context of well- being. This process has allowed us to define important course corrections while retaining the practices that best define us as an organization. Perhaps the greatest measure of our community impact is seen in the increase of the overall number of girls and adult volunteers who choose to be involved in Girl Scouting. The building excitement in our Campaign for Girls in Arizona is another excellent measure of the community’s willingness to invest in girls as a critical asset.
  21. 21. 1980s 1984 Daisy Girl Scout program for 5-year-olds is launched. 1986 Arizona Cactus-Pine Council’s 50th Birthday 1982 Edith Macy Conference Center is built. 1980 The Silver and Gold Awards are introduced as the highest awards for Cadette and Senior Scouts. 1981 Girl Scouts—Arizona Cactus-Pine Council (GSACPC) awarded Juliette Low World Friendship medal for Multicultural Understanding. 1987 75 Year Celebration – new uniforms, Contemportary Issues pilot. Promise Circle Ceremony. 1980s New badges included Computer Fun, Aerospace, and Business-Wise.
  22. 22. 22 GSACPCANNUALREPORT2011 At Girl Scouts–Arizona Cactus-Pine Council, we have a saying we use often: “Girl Scouting is so much more than cookies, crafts and camp.” Since the founding of Girl Scouts in 1912, the organization has provided girls with opportunities and skills to improve their lives and tap into their potential. While this has never changed, the public has often assumed Girl Scouts is only about having fun. Although Girl Scouting is (and always will be!) fun, the activities and programs girls participate in are so much more than that: they help girls find and believe in themselves. Through Girl Scouting, girls feel empowered and confident, create memories and friends, and gain real-life leadership skills to succeed personally and professionally. Now more than ever, Girl Scouts are becoming the leaders our community and world needs—through activities like cookies, crafts and camp. MORE THAN COOKIES MORE THAN CRAFTS MORE THAN CAMP GIRL SCOUTING IS...
  23. 23. 1990s 1993 Tamara J. Woodbury becomes Chief Executive Officer of GSACPC. 1990s Grants from Fortune 500 companies such as Lucent Technologies, Intel, and Lockheed Martin support science and technology exploration programs for girls. 1992 Pilot program began at the Maryland Correctional Institution for Women for the Girl Scouts Beyond Bars program. 1994 First World Awards recognitions. 1998 More than 800,000 adult members registered nationally. 1999 The Barbara Anderson Girl Scout Museum is founded. 1997 Jacque Steiner elected GSACPC Board President (1997-2003)
  24. 24. 24 GSACPCANNUALREPORT2011 MORE THAN COOKIES We build tomorrow’s leaders through a wide array of skill-building and enriching programming that girls love—one of the most well known being the Girl Scout Cookie Program. It is the largest girl-led business in the world, and strengthens five skills that are critical to girls’ success—goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics. These skills provide girls with what they need to be the businesswomen, community leaders, policy makers and strong mothers our community needs. They learn how to set goals and strive to reach them, work with peers and connect with customers, and how to be honest, trustworthy and reliable. During the 2011 cookie program, more girls sold more cookies than in previous years at Girl Scouts–Arizona Cactus-Pine Council. Out of more than 18,000 girls selling cookies, one girl’s story epitomized why the Girl Scout Cookie Program is so important. “The Girl Scout Cookie Program is not just about adorable girls selling delicious cookies, it is a leadership experience designed to strengthen girls’ potential for success. When people buy cookies, they are not just making a girl happy, they are making her a leader.” –Tamara J. Woodbury CEO, GSACPC
  25. 25. 2000s 2003 Cookie sales exceed 3 million packages nationally. 2001 Studio 2B program designed for girls 11-17. 2001 Bronze Award introduced as the highest award a Junior Scout can receive. 2002 Girl Scouts celebrates 90 years. 2000 “For Every Girl, Everywhere” campaign launches. 2003 Kathy Cloninger becomes National Chief Executive Officer. August 26, 2006 The National Board of Directors decided to restructure the 312 councils into 109 councils. 2006 Membership includes 312 regional Girl Scout councils which manage 236,000 local troops. 2008 The Ambassador level of Girl Scouting is created.
  26. 26. 26 GSACPCANNUALREPORT2011 MEET ABBY PROSNIER “Because of cookie sales, Abby has a lot more confidence in herself. Confidence to talk to others even when she struggles to find the right words. Confidence that she can set a goal, and confidence that she can reach it.” –Abby’s mom, Alison Colvin-Prosnier Born with Down syndrome, 14-year-old Abby has never let anything keep her from reaching her goals. In fact, she says she is empowered. During her years selling cookies, there were tough moments, but that didn’t stop her. She first used sign language to sell cookies, and for three years, used a computer that would speak to customers for her. When the 2011 Cookie Program rolled round, she had one goal: to be the overall top cookie seller in the council. She succeeded—selling 4,442 boxes of cookies. She kept herself motivated by keeping an eye on the prize she wanted most: a Wii gaming console that would be her reward for selling 2,000 boxes. But even after she reached that benchmark, she kept going! After all was said and done, Abby earned enough money to go on a trip to the Grand Canyon, enjoyed a full week at Camp Maripai, and took off to Disneyland with her troop! And, of course, she got her Wii.
  27. 27. 2011 GSUSA’s new CEO, Anna Maria Chávez is welcomed at the National Council Session/52nd Convention. 2012 2012 is Declared the “Year of the Girl” by GSUSA. 2012 In Arizona, membership reaches more than 25,000 girl members, and more than 11,000 adult members.

  28. 28. 28 GSACPCANNUALREPORT2011 MORE THAN CRAFTS Girls always create amazing things through Girl Scouting, and 2011 was no exception. Again this year, girls put their creative energies toward making our world a better place. “It goes without saying— girls love to create things. That’s why crafts have always played a role in Girl Scouting. But what many people don’t realize is today’s Girl Scouts aren’t just making things to have fun, they are making things to make a difference. Whether it’s jewelry with a mission to end human trafficking, or a robot made from Legos, girls are making an impact with the things they create.” –Margaret Serrano-Foster Board Chair, GSACPC Girl Scouts sent a message of hope to Japan When terror struck the U.S. on 9/11, Girl Scouts from Japan sent millions of origami cranes to New York as a sign of support. Girl Scouts from the US returned the gesture when Japan was hit with a staggering earthquake and tsunami in March of 2011. In the months following the tragedy, millions of origami cranes were sent to Japan. Girl Scouts from our own Just-Us Social Justice Programs also contributed— folding more than 1,000 cranes for the Girl Scouts in Japan. “This is important to me because I know what it is to suffer and not have anything. It made me feel good because I am helping other people, and helping them grow.” –Stephanie, Troop 2220
  29. 29. Girl Scouts took a stand against human trafficking This year, Girl Scouts from the group “GS GEMS” (Girl Scout Girls Empowering and Mentoring with Support) continued their efforts that began in 2008 to increase community awareness of human trafficking, and thereby help prevent it from occurring. They spoke to students and community members about the impact of the crime and sold handmade bracelets to support their effort and serve as a conversation starter about human trafficking. To date, they have spoken to thousands of people, many of whom wear their bracelets. GS GEMS member Alexis La Benz also created a website for her Gold Award project, www.teensontrafficking. org, which the GS GEMS use in their presentations. It has received more than 83,000 hits from people across the state and around the globe. Girl Scouts built award winning robotics Girl Scouts are bringing their creative minds to the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). For the FIRST LEGO League (FLL) competitions, one group of Girl Scouts from Troop 995 in Gilbert built, tested and programmed an autonomous robot, and invented a device called the “Mix-o-Fridge,” which allows campers to practice food safety during a campout. After a qualifying competition, the “Robo Peeps” advanced to the FLL state-level Competition held on December 10, 2011. After demonstrating their robot and displaying their invention, they received 1st place for their presentation. “The black beads on the bracelet represent the darkness of human trafficking, and how the issue is often silenced. The white beads represent the hope that by shedding light on the crime of human trafficking, we can end it. We hope that when people wear the bracelet, it will spark conversations with others about the issue, and spread awareness.” –Alexis La Benz, Troop 1914, National Young Woman of Distinction “Two years ago I would never have imagined myself being able to build and program a robot that would actually win a trophy at a state level competition. Just like Legos, the Girl Scouts were able to work together and build each other up, and that is exactly what we did. We believed in ourselves and each other and we did it!” –Emma, A member of the FLL Team “Robo Peeps”
  30. 30. 30 GSACPCANNUALREPORT2011 MORE THAN CAMP Year in and year out, Girl Scout camp is a place where girls can create memories, make new discoveries, develop lifelong friendships and grow as leaders. When girls come to camp, they are empowered to step outside their comfort zone and take risks, all while experiencing the wonderful sense of belonging that comes with being part of a tight-knit camp community. They also learn crucial skills in the five key Girl Scout program areas of Healthy Living, Financial Literacy, STEM, Global Citizenship and Environmental Leadership. Girl Scouts who attended camp—no matter if they are age 90, or age 9—will often name Girl Scout camp as the most meaningful and memorable experience of their years in Girl Scouting. Comments about Summer Camp 2011 from campers and parents show that the tradition of excellence goes on: “When a girl goes to camp, it’s often her very first time away from home. She learns independence and interdependence. She learns to think her own thoughts and find her own voice. It’s not just about having fun; it is the essence of leadership training.” –Crystal Kilkenny Camp Director, Camp Maripai
  31. 31. “My daughter is starting to realize what leadership is. It is so neat to watch that awakening happen. Younger girls look up to her as a role model, something she never realized!” –Girl Scout parent “One of the biggest experiences that Girl Scouts has provided was Girl Scout Camp. It started when I was little. I went to day camp at Camp Sombrero and then went to Maripai. Just this past summer, I was a counselor. It’s nice to see it evolve as you grow up—and get that whole Girl Scouting experience.” –Girl Scout and Camp Counselor “The best thing about the counselors is that they never gave up on me.” –Girl Scout “The skills I learned from Girl Scout Camp helped me out a lot this year. For example, when I started school this year, I didn’t know anybody... It was really intimidating, but I thought about when I went to camp and I didn’t know anybody and how everyone else was just as ner- vous as me.

  36. 36. 36 GSACPCANNUALREPORT2011 MARY THOMAS Mary Thomas became a Girl Scout at age 10 in 1930. A member of Troop 1 in Phoenix— one of the first recorded troops in Arizona—Mary has countless Girl Scouts stories that epitomize both her dedication to Girl Scouting, and the impact that it can have on one’s life. Her greatest memories of Girl Scouting are of camp: she recalls the joy of canoeing, horseback riding and campfires in the Arizona pines. Mary earned her Golden Eaglet (the highest award a Girl Scout could earn at the time) at 16, and after attending college, married a member of the National Air Force. For the next 30 years, she started Girl Scout Troops wherever she went—from Iran to England, and even in Guam. Mary has invested in Girl Scouts financially since 2007, and says she does so because “they do such a wonderful job with girls.” She particularly enjoys supporting international activities for Girl Scouts in our council. BESSIE PAYAN A Board Member with Girl Scouts–Arizona Cactus-Pine Council for two years, Bessie Payan is self described as “passionate about serving others.” After moving to Arizona in 1999, she saw a great need for health care among the members of her community. To address this need, she founded Wee Care Pediatrics in 2006. It remains a flourishing primary care doctor’s office for children in Arizona. In the same year, 2006, Bessie also became a Troop Leader here at Girl Scouts–Arizona Cactus-Pine Council. She went on to serve in a variety of volunteer capacities, most recently becoming a member of our Board of Directors in 2010. She says she loves being part of an organization that empowers our young leaders, and appreciates what Girl Scouting does for girls’ confidence and inner leadership. She says she has invested in Girl Scouts because “I believe this is a cause that will outlive me. I love that I can do my part.”
