With assistance from Rosanne Winters (LWV Akron Area) and Kathy Battaglia (LWV Hudson), the with assistance from Rosanne Winters (LWV Akron Area) and Kathy Battaglia (LWV Hudson) hosted 268 Girl Scouts for the 2018 Voter Girl Project #votergirl18 on Oct. 20. The Voter Girl Project (VGP) began in 2017 as a collaborative program between LWV Kent (LWVK) and Girl Scouts of Northeast Ohio (GSNEO) Scouts.
Voter Girl activity has increased significantly since it premiered a year ago. Attendance increase 20% in 2018, and Voter Girl Projects have started in states from coast to coast. LWVK promoted the VGP at the LWVUS National Convention in June. Since then, we have sold 12 copies of the program to leagues across the country. We expect the VGP to grow even more in 2019! See our photo album from the day’s activities.
WHAT IS THE VOTER GIRL PROJECT?
The VOTER Girl Project is a fun and rewarding activity in which Leagues collaborate with their local Girl Scout councils. The one-day class is available for all scout levels--from Daisies to Ambassadors--with a curriculum appropriate for each level. (Ambassadors have work outside the class to complete the badge requirements.)
League members use their knowledge of voting and advocacy to help scouts earn citizenship badges that promote the ideals Leagues cherish.
A curriculum guide has been developed by teachers and communicators with backgrounds in diversity and elementary and higher education. You receive marketing materials and operation tips that have been tested.
Best of all, scouts bring to the event their curiosity and determination to learn. Your League develops a high-profile community event that draws interest from media, parents and public officials.
HOW DOES MY LEAGUE START ITS OWN VOTER GIRL PROJECT?
You can get started by purchasing a VOTER Girl Project license from the League of Women Voters of Kent. The license includes a package of files (on a flash drive) that includes all the information you need to plan and conduct your own successful VOTER Girl Project.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
