Girl Scouts Beyond Bars in the Community

Young women who are members of the Girl Scouts Beyond Bars troop in Central Maryland were able to accomplish many extraordinary accomplishments with the help and support of donors and volunteers.  Girls became entrepreneurs and created their own business plan for the iconic cookie sale.  Then they put their plan into action at the Maryland Correctional Institution for Women, selling to families and staff. 

A special event acknowledging the contributions of two African American women to the suffrage movement was held in Baltimore City, at the homes in which these women lived and contributed significantly to that movement.  Girls from the GSBB troop prepared for this historically significant event by earning voting rights badges, and learning about civic engagement and responsibility. They then officiated at this event marking the 100th anniversary of the suffrage movement.   While these leadership experiences are critical components of the GSBB program, girls and mothers also continued to experience regular biweekly troop meetings at the correctional institution.  Sessions, held both separately and together at each visit, focus on many topics important to these mothers and their daughters.  They plan for Girl Scout traditions, such as World Thinking Day, and for the theme and activities of their annual overnight stay which is planned for April.  A brief news report was publicized during the past few weeks and this link will let you see the program in action.  https://www.wbaltv.com/article/girl-scouts-beyond-bars-prison-visit-mothers/29773923
