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.
Theta Zeta loves planning events with the Girl Scouts. Recently, we invited Girl Scouts ages 6 - 8 to a Halloween themed workshop about the five senses. We had a great time with the girls and the activities we planned kept them engaged and taught them a lot! Also, to celebrate International Girl's Day, middle school aged Girl Scouts came and learned about the media's detrimental effect on girls self-esteem and their own self-image. We helped build confidence in them and showed them that everyone is beautiful!
