Girl Scouts Host Forum on the State of Girls

Over the past several decades, there have been promising developments for girls in the United States, particularly in the areas of educational attainment and extracurricular activities, but many girls are being left behind and face significant challenges in making successful transitions to adulthood. On September 10, Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast, in partnership with Thomas Nelson Community College and Bon Secours Health System, hosted The State of Girls: Unfinished Business Forum to discuss a report from the Girl Scout Research Institute (GSRI) that stakes out key issues and major trends affecting girls' healthy development and leadership in the United States today.
