Excerpt from the 2015-2016 Annual Report: Each new year in Girl Scouting presents the opportunity for growth and innovation, and our 2015-2016 year was no exception. A growing girl and adult membership meant that Girl Scout program was delivered to 10,748 girls, 3 percent more than the prior year. Higher retention rates and a growing Early Bird membership drive contributed to this growth.
And these girls are making an impact on their communities—completing more than 80,000 community service hours through a variety of Take Action projects. Almost 10,000 more hours went into projects that earned 337 girls the Bronze Award, 40 girls the Silver Award and 14 girls the Gold Award, Girl Scouting’s highest girl achievement.
