Celebrate International Girls Day.
Who is today’s girl? She’s tomorrow’s leader. She’s president of her senior class and future president of the USA. She’s the up-and-coming CEO of a Fortune 500 company and the brains behind the next breakthrough in medical science. She’s a future gold medal Olympic athlete, an inventor, an entrepreneur, a philosopher. She is impacting her community – today and into the future.
Kappa Delta created International Girls Day to celebrate girls – all kinds of girls with all kinds of interests and abilities. With the theme “She Can Do Anything,” it’s a day to build confidence in girls and help them realize their potential.
Kappa Delta collegiate chapters celebrate the day by hosting confidence-building events with Girl Scouts in their communities. Each year, more than 5,000 girls participate in KD International Girls Day events.
Join the fun! Plan an International Girls Day celebration on or around Nov. 14.
- Alone or with your friends, take some time to think about your goals. What kind of career would you like to pursue? How can you have an impact on your community and the world? Ask some women you know to share their goals, why they chose their careers, how they are active in the community.
- Discover a new interest. Sign up for a cooking or gardening class.
- Step outside your comfort zone. Join a new club. Run for student council. Enter an essay contest. Plan an outdoor adventure.
- Make a photo album or a scrapbook that celebrates your unique talents and strengths.
- Invite some friends over for a craft day. Make collages, scrapbooks or paintings that show your individuality.
- Get a group of girls together to participate in a service project in your community — clean a park, collect canned goods for the food pantry, volunteer at an animal shelter.
- Visit your state capital or your town’s city hall. Talk to the mayor or other political leaders about what they do. Ask what steps they took to get where they are.
- Go to a women’s basketball game or other women’s sporting event.
- Take some time, either individually or as a group of girls, to learn about the lives of girls in other countries, especially those that don’t have the opportunities that you have.
- Donate school supplies, clothing, toys and other items for girls less fortunate.
