In 1998, Kappa Delta began a national collaboration with Girl Scouts, an organization of over three million girls. With this partnership, Kappa Delta became the first and only National Panhellenic Conference group to adopt the Girl Scouts as a national philanthropy.
Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place. The same could be said for Kappa Delta as it relates to young women. With common values and a commitment to leadership development, Kappa Delta and Girl Scouts are sisters at heart.
Girl Scouts provides Kappa Delta members opportunities for face-to-face volunteering. Each year, Kappa Deltas across the country devote over 125,000 hours to working with Girl Scouts in their communities. Popular KD Girl Scout events are self-esteem workshops, campus tours, International Girls Day celebrations and anti-bullying workshops.
Kappa Delta collegiate volunteers get to see firsthand the difference they make in girls’ lives while learning important leadership skills in the process.
In addition to our philanthropies, we also work with Girl Scouts of America! We host several events with the Girl Scouts at our house each year. We set up several activities for the girls to participate in that focus on building their confidence and encouraging them to be who they want to be. Kappa Delta partnered with the Confidence Coalition which is a group that focuses on building confidence in women across the country. They encourage women to build themselves as well as everyone around them up. On International Girls Day, we invited the Girl Scouts to come to our house to write in confidence journals, learn a dance to Demi Lovato’s “Confident”, and give us the opportunity to hang out with them! We love being around these young girls and encouraging them to believe in anything they set their minds to.
