World Thinking Day Celebration

Each year on February 22, the Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council (GSSJC) celebrate the important relationship between Girl Scouts and Girl Guides all over the world. In honor of our fellow Girl Scouts and Girl Guides in different countries, this week GSSJC staff held a World Thinking Day (WTD) celebration and created booths with fun educational activities and traditional food samplings to inspire others to learn more about scouting around the world. 

WTD is a special day in the Girl Scout year when we remember we are part of a worldwide movement. This year we would like Girl Scouts and Girl Guides to explore, stretch, and take on new challenges—and celebrate what it means to be part of the global sisterhood. 

The theme of World Thinking Day 2017 was "Grow", and as we watch our Girl Scouts take on the challenge to grow and thrive we are proud to hold staff events such as this where employees are also encouraged to grow, get to know one another and never stop learning. 

You may not know this, but Girl Guides and Girl Scouts reaches 10 million girls and young women in 146 countries across five regions. These regions include the Western Hemisphere, Africa, Middle East, Europe and the Asia Pacific. Countries represented at the GSSJC WTD Celebration were Nigeria, Germany, Liechtenstein, Ireland, Fiji, Monaco, Thailand, India and Brazil.

Thank you to everyone who participated and a special congratulations to the team representing Nigeria who won overall best presentation.
