Courage Confidence Character Series
We are excited to welcome Janet Evans to the Meyer Theater in Green Bay on October 28. Janet is widely considered to be the greatest female distance swimmer in history despite her small size and unorthodox windmill stroke. Janet won 3 gold medals at the 1988 Olympics in Seoul. At the 1996 Atlanta Olympics Janet defended her gold in the 800 freestyle and added a silver in the 400 freestyle. Janet broke a total of seven world records in three events (400 meter, 800 meter, and 1500 meter freestyle) during her career, some of which are the longest standing records on the swimming books.
Janet has made a name for herself as a motivational speaker. Hear her inspirational stories and lesson on leadership through goal attainment.

Imagine the Future
With generous funding from the Women’s Fund of Greater Green Bay’s Imagine the Future Grant and the support of the Green Bay Area Public School District, The Boys & Girls Club of Greater Green Bay and Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes have come together with to help girls in our community.
We have been working to combat the issues facing girls with a comprehensive pilot program that in its first year is providing twenty fourth grade girls with the role models, skills, and experiences needed for success.
Get ready for a great year by attending one of our Fall Workshops. Join us for a morning filled with resources to help you navigate the ins and outs of being a new volunteer. These workshops are geared towards volunteers who have been with our organization two years or less.
Did your troop bridge to a new Girl Scout grade level this year! We have you covered. Learn about best practices in troop management…in your pajamas! Our online grade level trainings allow volunteers to call in from home and participate in a discussion about resources, trips, Journeys, and typical behaviors of girls!

Additionally, Girl Scouts may design their own project that aligns with their Girl Scout Journey experience, various badge activities, or a Take Action (“highest award”) project. Girls who successfully complete projects will be awarded certificates from the National Park Service and Girl Scout patches.
