Girl Scouts developed year-long cultural programming to provide girls with the colors, sights, tastes, and stories of cultures that demonstrate the diversity of the United States population.
“Many cultures blend to create the fabric of the United States. These interactive celebrations allow our girls to become more knowledgeable and better relate to the world around them,” said Kelle Boteilho, Chief Operating Officer, Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada.
