Seven Girl Scouts in New Orleans Troop 40787 recently earned the Girl Scout Bronze Award, the highest award a Girl Scout Junior can achieve. The award requires the completion of a series of leadership challenges that are appropriate to their Girl Scout level and prepares them for their final take-action project.
For its Bronze Award take-action project, Girl Scout Junior Troop 40787, of New Orleans, worked together to improve the quality of life of runaway and homeless youth that utilize Tulane’s Drop-In Center.
Recognizing that the youth were homeless and spent most of their time outside, they promoted and conducted a clothing drive at Lusher; set up drop boxes; hosted a holiday party for Girl Scout Daisies, collecting socks as admission; and informed their school community about the Drop-In Center’s services and needs.
The Girl Scouts are Iman Ferguson, Kelsey Kirsch, Riley Price, Natalie Sobel, Nia Talbott, Isabel Wilson, and Sophia Wilson. The project adviser was Natasha Wilson.
