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.
Kappa Delta Gamma Gamma is so lucky to have the opportunity to work closely with the Girl Scouts. Our Girl Scout committee regularly plan events with the local troops and participate in fun learning games and activities with them! This past year we hosted a Valentines Day party where girls worked together with Kappa Delta’s to decorate cookies and Valentines Day cards! We also have the pleasure of selling Girl Scout cookies around campus too which is a great way to teach Girl Scouts how to sell cookies with confidence. We teach the girls how to advertise, handle money, and work cooperatively with customers. Gamma Gamma really enjoys working with the Girl Scouts and instilling values of confidence and creativity into young girls’ minds.
