The Girl Scouts Of Southeast Michigan (GSSEM) are looking to expand their reach in the metro area Detroit in an effort to help local girls reach their full potential. Monica Woodson, CEO of GSSEM said, “We want to strengthen our connections to the city and be sure that Detroit’s girls take full advantage of all we have to offer, our regional headquarters is in the city of Detroit, and we want to make sure we’re part of the city.”
GSSEM plans on bringing some of its most successful entrepreneurial, outdoor programming and members of STEM, to Family Day in Detroit, which is on September 11th from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. at Palmer Park. Children grades K-12 are invited and all who attend Family Day can participate in free Girl Scouts programming such as robotics, drone flying lessons, Olympic-style games, Lego Derby car racing and more.
Woodson said that her goal with GSSEM is to build leadership, courage, confidence and character amongst young girls in Detroit. Woodson said, “We’re in the business of helping girls and young women become even better and more fierce young women. It’s an important job, and we take that very seriously. My team and I recognize the responsibility that sits on our shoulders.” Detroit, if you are looking for something positive and productive for your daughters to get into, GSSEM is the place for them. Attending their Family Day on September 11, would be a great way to end the summer as we get ready to head into another school year.
