KDs Encourage Girl Scouts On International Girls Day and at other events throughout the year, Kappa Deltas are providing positive, inspiring experiences for Girl Scouts. From creating crafts with kindergartners to mentoring middle-schoolers, KDs are helping Girl Scouts of the USA "build girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place." Pictured: Beta Zeta-South Carolina hosted a self-defense workshop with more than 40 Girl Scouts. Each Girl Scout was paired with a Kappa Delta "big sister" and learned how to defend herself to get out of a dangerous situation. Alpha Delta-Rhodes invited Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority sisters to help lead a confidence event for Girl Scouts in middle school. Activities included listening to and reflecting upon a Ted Talk by Niko Everett, the founder of Girls for Change; a panel of sisters sharing candidly about times they struggled with confidence; a string activity in which every person in the circle said one thing she loves about herself before tossing a ball of string to someone else; and making self-confidence booster kits filled with positive messages for the Girl Scouts to take home. Epsilon Alpha-Missouri S&T KDs helped Girl Scouts make friendship bracelets, decorate cookies and reflect on their future career goals. This Girl Scout, posing with a book, scarf and chalkboard, is ready to one day take the lead in the classroom as a teacher. Beta Delta-Utah State hosted an International Girls Day event where Girl Scouts rotated through different activity stations. Emily Allen, pictured, helped Girl Scouts outline their hands and then write on each hand five qualities of a successful person. Delta Sigma-South Alabama KDs and a young helper modeled vintage Girl Scout uniforms at a tea party they hosted for local Girl Scouts. The fashion show included a replica of a uniform that belonged to Juliette Gordon Low who founded Girl Scouts in 1912. The KD models shared bits of Girl Scout history and fun facts. An etiquette professional guided the Girl Scouts during the tea party with tips for better table manners and conversation skills. Epsilon-Louisiana State 's International Girls Day event included games, yoga and an opportunity for participants to dress up and walk the "When I Grow Up" runway. This Girl Scout is keeping her options open: She's dressed as a doctor and a singer! Eta Zeta-North Florida's International Girls Day event featured seven stations of fun and meaningful activities. At the first station, Alex Capobianco, left, and Hannah Thrower assisted Girl Scouts in drawing their shapes on paper and filling in the space with things they love about themselves. Sigma Slgma-towa State hosted 100 Girl Scouts from across the state of Iowa at their International Girls Day event. With the theme "You'll Always Stand Out, but You'll Never Stand Alone," Girl Scouts made dream boards and decorated handheld mirrors to remind them of the event and how they can do anything with the support of their friends and family. The Girl Scouts also wrote on balloons and signed the Confidence Coalition's Confidence Pledge, which is available at Zeta Rho-San Diego and Beta Rho-San Diego State co-hosted an International Girls Day event for local Girl Scouts. The event was part of a full week of confidence-building activities for collegians organized by Zeta Rho, which received a Confidence U Grant from the Kappa Delta Foundation. Pictured at the IGD event is Zeta Rho Nina Paoloni with her young Girl Scout friend. Mu-Mlllsaps sister Elizabeth Hambuchen enjoyed writing confidence-building messages on balloons with Jackson, Mississippi, Girl Scouts who attended the KD chapter's International Girls Day event.
