Today, Girl Scouts and Raytheon are excited to announce they are launching GSUSA’s first national computer science program and Cyber Challenge for middle and high school girls!

Together, they'll create "Think Like A Programmer" Journeys for Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors, as well as other STEM experiences designed to help girls learn key concepts of computer science, problem solve with friends, build essential leadership skills, and apply what they learn at Girl Scouts’ first-ever Cyber Challenge.

“At a time when technology is transforming the way we live and work, we can - and should - show young women a clear path to taking an active role in this transformation," says Raytheon CEO Thomas A. Kennedy. "Working together, Raytheon and Girl Scouts will help girls build confidence to see themselves as the robotics engineers, data scientists and cybersecurity professionals who will create a better tomorrow.”

Our community is full of young innovators, entrepreneurs, change agents, and community leaders. But not every girl has access to the Girl Scout Leadership Experience that will help her unlock her potential!

You can change that. Today on #GivingTuesday, kick off the season of giving with a donation to Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona, and help us bring Girl Scouting to the girls in our community who need it most: girlscoutssoaz.org/give

(Plus, your donation is eligible for the Arizona Charitable Tax Credit - up to $400 for single filers and $800 for couples filing jointly. Learn more here: http://bit.ly/2BuLF6E)

We were so thrilled to be able to bring 22 Girl Scouts from Graham and Greenlee Counties on a trip to the Angel Charity Place for Girls last weekend. They learned new outdoor skills, experimented with STEM, and even made their own trail mix, before ending the day with a campfire and s'mores at the Hacienda.

Thanks to United Way of Graham & Greenlee Counties for the grant that made it possible. We can't wait to see all you go-getters, innovators, risk-takers and leaders back again soon!

Girl Scouts’ unique all-girl environment gives girls the confidence they need to step out of their comfort zone and try new things. That's why we're dedicated to bringing Girl Scouting to EVERY girl. Watch this video to learn more about our council's Social Impact programming in schools throughout Southern Arizona, and the incredible impact it has in building girls of courage, confidence, and character across our community. (Our segment starts at 3:27!)
