On September 29, 2018, the mothers at the Maryland Correctional Institution for Women looked on with pride as their daughters were invested and rededicated.
Girls who are new to the Beyond Bars Program were invested into the Girl Scout family for the first time and received their Girl Scout pins. The rededication was an opportunity for returning girls and adults to renew their commitment to the Girl Scout Promise and Law.
During the ceremony, girls received new uniforms and patches that they earned the previous year in skill areas such as STEM, outdoors, life skills, and entrepreneurship.
Currently, Girl Scouts Beyond Bars is serving 29 girls and 19 mothers. Over the past 25 years, more than 400 girls have been given the support they need as they cope with the loss of a parent and the isolation that comes from the stigma of their mothers’ involvement in the criminal justice system.
Your commitment to Girl Scouts Beyond Bars helps us ensure that ALL girls in central Maryland have the opportunity to be a G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™.
