Dear Girl Scout Volunteers and Families:
As our community begins to comprehend the magnitude of this weekend’s events we know that many of you will face difficult conversations with your troops. We are attempting to gather appropriate information and tools for you to use as you talk with your girls. The links below are a beginning. Please call me directly at 520.319.3168 if you would like to have a personal conversation before meeting with your troops.
Yours in Girl Scouting,
CEO and Chief Girl Scout Southern Arizona-Sahuaro
