after school hours program
All Girl Scouting experiences are designed to incorporate the National Girl Scouts Leadership Experience. Girls are engaged in activities and programs that are centered on the three keys to leadership: Discover, Connect, Take Action. The After School Hours Program (ASHP) is no exception!
ASHP serves girls in grades K–12 through participating schools in low-resource communities. The program exposes girls to the Girl Scouts Leadership Experience, helping them to acquire invaluable life skills, including developing a strong sense of self, promoting cooperation and resolving conflicts. ASHP uses the award-winning national curriculum Leadership Journeys, where girls come to understand themselves, the world around them and then take action to make the world a better place. Girls may experience benefits in their learning aptitude and overall engagement in school – from displaying higher concentration levels and demonstrating an ability to focus cognitively to applying newly acquired concepts to their day-to-day lives. ASHP currently serves approximately 300 girls at numerous schools and is continuously growing in membership.
Participating schools for the 2013–2014 school year are:
King Kaumuali`i Elementary
King Kamehameha III Elementary School
