Incoming Kindergarteners can now join as Daisies
Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York (GSNENY) is kicking off the Pre-K Daisy Launch program for incoming Kindergarteners. Prior to this initiative, incoming Girl Scouts had to be five-years-old and in Kindergarten to join Girl Scouts. Starting on May 1, four-year-old girls enrolling in Kindergarten in the fall can sign up to become a Daisy. The annual membership fee for Girl Scouts is $25.
The Daisy Launch program will give girls the opportunity to meet new friends, try new things and have fun with their peers as they prepare for Kindergarten. The program is the first step in starting the Girl Scout journey. As part of the program, girls learn about honesty, kindness, sharing and being helpful. The goal of this program is to prepare girls to be successful in Kindergarten, Girl Scouts, and life by giving them every advantage to prepare them for a lifetime of leadership. An activity booklet will guide girls through five skill building areas as they experience the first steps in becoming a Girl Scout and discover more about themselves.
“Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York is proud to offer this program to rising Kindergarteners,” said Mary Buszuwski, chief executive officer of GSNENY. “It is both scary and exciting to be going into school, with this program we know we will empower these girls as they prepare to become young leaders in their community.”
GSNENY believes in the power of every G.I.R.L (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ to change the world. As part of a member in the Daisy Launch program, girls will be able to explore nature and the outdoors, gain new friends at special Daisy Launch events throughout the year and learn more about the largest girl led organization in the world as she prepares to bridge to the Daisy level.
GSNENY will be hosting a Facebook Live event on May 1 at 3:00 p.m. with two new Daisies as they take part in an activity that will be available to future Girl Scouts. Learn more about the Daisy Launch program.
