Girl Scouts to launch Becoming Me program
For the Times
CENTRAL WISCONSIN – Girl Scouts is collaborating with Penguin Random House and Former First Lady Michelle Obama on their “Becoming Me” program.
The program follows Obama’s book, “Becoming: Adapted for Young Readers,” and offers a unique opportunity for Girl Scouts to embark on their journeys to become their best selves. The program, which includes a virtual event with Obama, will also walk girls through earning three badges at each Girl Scout level.
“Mrs. Obama is a cultural leader and a champion for girls and women,” said GSUSA Interim CEO Judith Batty. “Her journey described in Becoming closely aligns with our mission of building girls of courage, confidence, and character. It is a story of sharing joys and triumphs, as well as the bumps and bruises along the way. Our Becoming Me program will challenge participants to look inside themselves to define who they are and who they want to become, just as Mrs. Obama does in Becoming.”
The Girl Scouts’ Becoming Me virtual program will be available at no cost to any interested Girl Scout enrolled for the 2021–22 membership year. Additionally, program materials will be available for GSNWGL volunteers, drawing on Girl Scouts’ programming, which includes over 300 skill-building badges.
The Becoming Me program will launch in early May. Learn more by visiting girlscouts.org/BecomingMe.
