A Program for Every G.I.R.L.

Over this past year, many of our volunteers, parents, girls, and staff
members have become certified G.I.R.L. Champions. The training
took us back through our history and reminded us that what has
always made us strong is the same today as it was 105 years ago.
Girl Scouts have always been true Go-getters, Innovators, Risk-
takers, and Leaders. Since the very beginning, Girl Scouts has
created an environment that encourages girls to speak up and
take a stand to overcome social challenges. Overcoming these
challenges then and today continues to be an essential part of our
Girl Scout DNA as true Go-Getters. We were reminded that Girl
Scouts have never found a problem too big to address. Everyday
our girls look around their world, learn about problems, and
address them head-on, as Innovators. Our girls are constantly
taking on new experiences and stepping outside of their comfort
zones. That is real Risk-taking! And through it all, Girl Scouts
practice leadership with empathy. Girl Scouts’ idea of being a
Leader isn’t about power over people, but power with purpose. It’s
not about aspirational outcomes, but the everyday ways we help
each other.
At the heart of building girls of courage, confidence, and character,
are our volunteers. And the tools to teach girls to empower
themselves for a lifetime of leadership are their experiences as
Girl Scouts. That’s why we have used G.I.R.L. as the foundation of
everything you will find in the following pages. As you read through
this FOCALPoint, you will see the G.I.R.L. framework supporting
our programmatic expansion throughout all areas of our council
jurisdiction.
In this FOCALPoint you will find everything you have been looking
for, and more. For the first time in our council’s history, we will
deliver council-sponsored programming in every one of the 22
counties we serve. This year you will find more than 300 program
options for your girls that touch on all five of the council’s
strategic programmatic areas of focus, and for all age levels. But
most importantly, the quality of programming options makes this
our most exciting FOCALPoint ever. Everything was planned with
the G.I.R.L. in mind. This year, let’s make Juliette Gordon Low—the
Original G.I.R.L.— proud. All you need to do to get started is turn the page!

                  To Infinity and Beyond!
Girl Scouts of the USA has teamed up with Girl Scouts of South Carolina – Mountains to Midlands,
SETI Institute, ARIES, University of Arizona, and the Astronomical Society of the Pacific to create a
new series of space science badges in collaboration with NASA! GSSC-MM is one of only ELEVEN
councils selected to pilot this program!

Our Girls are piloting the badges by:
     • Learning about space science and engaging in scientific inquiry while they explore the sky
     • Developing communication skills through the opportunity to provide feedback on the badges
     • Having a unique experience by helping to develop a new badge, and be part of history!!!
More to come…
Over the next 18 months we will have each level testing the badges. Our pilot Daisy and Brownie
troops are completing the badges this fall. We will wrap up December 2018.

                               Program Kits 411
  Planning fun and interesting activities for Girl Scout meetings, events, and camp-outs can
  take a lot of time. We’ve designed program kits to make Girl Scouting easier for both new
  and experienced troop leaders. These kits are designed to enhance the Girl Scout Leadership
  Experience with hands-on activities and contain instructions, resources, and non-consumable
  items needed for the activity. Some kits are designed for troop meetings, while others may be
  more appropriate for an event at a council property.
  Some of our program kits include:
       • Geocaching
       • Letterboxing
       • Orienteering
       • PA Training
       • Girls Go to Mars
       • Techbridge
       • CATCH
       • Strong Girls Healthy Meeting Guide and Resources
  Plus more!
  For the most up to date information about program kits, how to reserve kits, and pricing,
  visit www.gssc-mm.org.




Are you a lifelong Girl Scout, or a recent one that loves preparing girls to
empower themselves? Are you organized? Love leading activities? Enjoy being
outdoors? WE NEED YOU!

The Program Team is looking for volunteers who can provide approximately one
day or weekend a month to be part of our Program Specialists Team. After a short
training you will be able to assist us around the council with our council sponsored
events. We will need Program Specialists who can arrive early at a site and check
in our girls and troops, as well provide skills at camp depending on interests and
skillsets!

Interested? Please contact Deanna Ludwick, Director of Program Experience, at
dludwick@gssc-mm.org.

The Great American Eclipse will be here August 21st!
Wow, what a day this will be! Of course the weather needs to be just right, and you MUST use special eye protection to look at
the sun whenever it is not totally eclipsed! About 2:36:02pm, the shadow of the great 2017 total eclipse first touches the final
state in its path, South Carolina. Greenville is a very large city, and it is fully in shadow by 2:38pm. Its sister city of Spartanburg,
however, is split by the path - you'll want to head west, and enjoy Greenville's two minutes and 14 seconds of totality.
Looking directly at the Sun is unsafe except during the brief total phase of a solar eclipse (“totality”), when the Moon entirely
blocks the Sun’s bright face, which will happen only within the narrow path of totality.

                              How to view an eclipse safely:




The only safe way to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed Sun is through special-purpose solar filters, such
as “eclipse glasses” or handheld solar viewers. Homemade filters or ordinary sunglasses, even very dark ones, are not safe
for looking at the Sun. Please be sure to research and see what other options there are for viewing. We now carry eclipse-
approved glasses in our GIRLZ GEAR stores!
Here is an activity you can do at home!

SUN TRACKING
What Is This About?
Long before humans kept track of time with mechanical clocks, atomic radiation, or computer chips, they used the Sun to tell
time. As the Earth spins around like a top, the Sun appears to move across our sky. This movement causes shadows to move
and change over the course of a sunny day. The simplest Sun tracker is called a gnomon, pronounced “no min.” A gnomon
casts a shadow, and can be as simple as a vertical pole. It can be used to track time on its own, or to measure time in hours
and minutes as part of a sundial.
Materials
      • Vertical pole, stick (straight branch, stake, pencil)
      • Open location on a sunny day
      • Rocks or other markers, 3 or more
What To Do
If you are installing your own stick as a temporary gnomon,
      • Find a clear, sunny space with soft dirt
      • Press the stick straight down into the ground until it stands up on its own
      • Find your gnomon’s shadow and mark the shadow’s end with a rock
      • Decide when you can return to your gnomon, at least 30 minutes later
      • Estimate where the gnomon’s shadow will be at this future time
      • Place a second rock at the location of your guess
      • Groups can make multiple guesses with more rocks
      • Return to your gnomon after the planned amount of time
Check your guess. Is the rock close to the shadow? Did the shadow move more, less, or differently than you expected? Based
on this movement, where do you hypothesize the shadow might be if you waited the same amount of time again? If you have
time, guess again check back a second time. Did the shadow move as you expected?

Make a Pocket Sun Clock
Materials
      • 7 inches (20 centimeters) of string
      • Sun Clock print out
      • Tape
      • Scissors
Make a simple Pocket Sun Clock. Pick the pattern for your location, and print on heavy paper or
glue onto cardstock. Cut out the Sun Clock, and carefully cut the short notch at each end. Fold
along the dotted line, with the print on the inside. Take about 7 inches (20 centimeters) of string,
and place the ends through the notches. Tape one end to the back of the clock. Make the string
tight when the two parts of the clock are at a 90 degree angle. Tape the second end of the string
to the back of the clock.
Take the Pocket Sun Clocks outside on a sunny day. Ask the Girl Scouts to place the clocks on
a flat surface and experiment with them until they tell the right time. Which way are the clocks
facing? Is there only one correct position? If possible mark the position on the ground, and return
about an hour later to experiment again. Any changes?




Eyes to the Sky: A Once in a Lifetime Destination
We are hosting 48 girls at Camp WaBak for this amazing adventure. We have girls coming from 16 states and 23 councils to
join our own Girl Scouts for this once in a lifetime opportunity. They will start their adventure with a space themed lunch
before they head off to learn and have fun at Roper Mountain Science Center, Challenger Learning Center, and The SC State
Museum and Planetarium. They will test their problem-solving skills as they engage deeper in robotics, rocketry, and aviation.
They will make new friends while they plan for their day together viewing the Total Solar Eclipse from Camp WaBak.

                             Volunteer Experience: Equipping
                               Volunteers for Easy Success
It’s about fit.
Your volunteer position should make good use of your skills and interests – so let us know if you’d like to consider
shifting to a different role that better fits your time constraints, and your skills and interests.

    Troop Co-Leaders
    Work together to provide a quality Girl Scout Leadership Experience through service to the girls assigned to their troop.
    The team structure allows each volunteer to maximize his or her skills as they pertain to troop leadership.
    Troop Specialists
    Work with a troop as a consultant in a special area, i.e. the arts, financial literacy, service/take action projects, STEM, and
    trip planning or to fulfill the requirement for a First Aid/CPR certified adult or Outdoor Skills certified adult.
    Adult Learning Facilitators
    Work with council staff to train potential and current volunteers
    as well as provide enrichment opportunities to enhance
    the volunteers’ abilities to help girls lead.
    Event Volunteers
    Help throughout the year at large council organized activities for
    girls which could include STEM events, programming for older
    girls, outdoor education, cookie rallies...just to name a few!
    Individually Registered Girl (IRG) Program Advisors
    Provide quality leadership experience for girls who are not able to
    participate in a traditional troop; organize opportunities for these
    girls to come together, sell cookies, attend summer camp, and
    participated in a yearly Special Event.
    Program Specialists
    Share a special skill like outdoor cooking, archery or orienteering
    during a council sponsored event, lead a session at one of
    outdoor programs like Core Troop Camp and Back In the Woods,
    or run a check-in table at one of our events across the region.
    Product Program Volunteers
    Coordinate the product program for a group of troops in a
    geographical area. During the fall it is all about nuts, chocolates,
    and magazines. During the winter/spring, it’s all about the premier
    business enterprise for girls...the Girl Scout Cookie Program!
    Service Unit Volunteers
    Assist with support for adults and programming for girls in a
    geographical area.

It’s about having the tools and resources.

                                     Volunteer Experience:
Volunteer Toolkit (VTK) – Designed to Help Plan the Most Exciting Girl Scout Year!
                                       Volunteer Toolkit
Girl Scouts provides troops with an online one-stop resource: The Volunteer Toolkit (VTK). This will help keep troops
organized and troop years exciting; not to mention easy to plan. To get started, go to www.gssc-mm.org and click
“My GS.” Since it is mobile friendly, everything this resource has to offer is available wherever and whenever you need
it! There is more information about all the features of the Volunteer Toolkit on our council website in the “Volunteers”
section.

Year Plans
With this feature, Daisy, Brownie and Junior troops can choose either a pre-written year
plan or create their own custom year plan. Cadette, Senior and Ambassador troops have
access to create their own custom year plan.

The pre-written year plans will pre-populate the agendas for all of your meetings based on
the meeting dates you specify. This will help leaders and parents to see that it really is
possible to do a lot of awesome things in one Girl Scout year. Leaders can change the
order of meetings, edit meeting agendas, change activities, as well as email the
information to each other and parents. Through the VTK, leaders can easily add
additional meetings or activities, such as trips or special events (i.e. ceremony).

Plan with the girls! If a volunteer is a Daisy, Brownie, or Junior leader, they can use the
                                 pre-written plans as a guide for involving the girls in the
                                 planning process. To help keep track of important
                                 events, GSSC-MM will add important dates throughout
                                 the Girl Scout year to show up in troop Year Plans as
                                 “Milestones.” These orange banners appear in
                                 chronological order along with troop meetings and
                                 activities.

                                 Meeting Agendas
                                 Troops can edit the full agenda for any meeting
                                 and meeting aide resources. When a troop
creates additional meetings or activities, they can add in resources from the
VTK library onto a blank agenda. The VTK serves as the go-to place for
everyone in a troop to see important information about meetings and
activities (such as locations, times, and what materials are needed).

Troop Finances
Troops will be able to easily track and report troop income and expenses during the year as well as upload information
needed for end of year council reporting.

Parents have read-only access to meeting agendas and end of year troop finances in the VTK. This allows them to stay
up to date on everything their daughter is enjoying in Girl Scouts!

Financial Literacy Skills through our Product Programs
Product programs are a popular and proven life skill component of the Girl Scout Leadership
Experience. Product programs assist girls in developing their self-confidence through entrepreneurial
and financial literacy activities while simultaneously providing them with the funds to experience
additional adventures. The five important skills that girls “learn by doing” through product sales are
goal setting, decision making, money management, people
skills, and business ethics.
The council sponsors two product programs annually. All
registered Girl Scouts in grades K-12 may participate with
written permission from their parents/guardians.
Recruiting capable volunteer help is vital to the success
of product sale experiences. Every troop that participates
needs to have computer, financial, and organizational skills,
and be able to help girls have meaningful, age-appropriate
learning experiences during the various aspects of the
program.
Troop Product Manager position descriptions for each
product sale are located on our website in the Product Sales
section. Registration for the appropriate product sale adult
learning session signifies that your troop is interested in
participating in these programs.

The Girl Scout Cookie Program is our premier business enterprise activity.
Selling cookies is a tradition that dates back to 1917 when Girl Scouts began
selling home-baked cookies to raise money to help their troop and community. Since then, the activity has grown into an
opportunity for girls to practice leadership while earning money for their troop and council activities.
In addition to the life skills Girl Scouts gain from their hands-on participation, troops earn Girls learn skills they
money to carry out their troop activities and also help ensure the future of Girl Scouting     will carry throughout
in our communities. All revenue generated by the Girl Scout Cookie Program goes directly       their lives and careers:
to troops or is designated for program services that directly support girls and/or adult
volunteers in our 22-county area. Girls take orders in January; then deliver cookies and
conduct direct sales in February and March. However, girls may continue taking orders
throughout the sale.


                           Stand Up, Stand Out! is the theme for the 2018 Girl Scout
                           Cookie Program. This year’s Girl Scout Cookie Program is a way
                           for girls to develop financial empowerment skills they will use
                           throughout their lives. It’s a great way to think about the many
                           ways the cookie activity yields tangible results in support of
                           the Girl Scout Leadership Model. It’s easy to see how the skills
                           gained from the Girl Scout Cookie Program fit right in with Girl
