Gold Award Workshop

The Girl Scouts’ Gold Award is the highest honor that a Girl Scout can achieve. Embarking on this leadership journey enables a girl to discover their vast capabilities, connect with an identified need or issue in the community, and take action to make a positive and lasting difference in the lives of people and the world. This workshop will introduce girls to writing a Gold Award proposal.  Girls can attend in person at the Girl Scout Office or call in via webinar.

More information about the Gold Award can be found here.

Car Care Clinic – Hawaii Island

An opportunity for new, soon-to-be new, and not-so-new drivers to learn basic auto safety techniques and explore possible career opportunities in the automotive industry. This is a Mother and Daughter event (although girls are welcome to attend without their mothers) for Cadettes and older. Topics covered in this program will accomplish 2 steps toward the Senior Car Care Badge. Attendees will receive goodies including a GSUSA patch.

Identify major parts under the hood – what fluids go where; why they’re important; dos and not to dos under the hood. Tire safety – why it’s important; choosing the correct tire; checking tire pressure; what’s the right tire pressure for your car. Dashboard gauges and dials – what do all these things mean anyway?

Basic car care techniques – keeping your vehicle safe and on the road. Roadside safety – what should you carry. What to do if you break down; to pull over or not to pull over when you’re pulled over.  Jump starting your car without blowing yourself or the engine up; Simple do it yourself fixes.  Being a savvy consumer – how not to get ripped off at the repair shop. Automotive careers – girls can do it too!

The theme of our 2013 Woman of Distinction Dinner is STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). In today’s world, STEM is everywhere; almost every task and activity that we do requires some manifestation of science, technology, engineering or math. A 2012 study found that about half of all girls feel that STEM is not  a typical career path for girls. Though girls are overwhelmingly interested in STEM, 57% of them feel that if they pursued a STEM career, they would have to work harder than a man just to be taken seriously.

Our 2013 Woman of Distinction honorees have broken the gender barrier, showing that it is possible for women to pursue STEM careers–and to pursue it successfully. This year we honor three women who excel not only in their careers, but also as community leaders who inspire their colleagues and our next generation of female leaders.
