Girl Scout

Promise

On my honor, I will try:

To serve God * and my country,

To help people at all times,

And to live by the Girl Scout Law.

Girl Scout Law

I will do my best to be

honest and fair,

friendly and helpful, considerate and caring,

courageous and strong, and

responsible for what I say and do,

and to

respect myself and others, respect authority,

use resources wisely,

make the world a better place,

and be a sister to

every Girl Scout.

*The word “God” can be interpreted in a number of ways, depending on one’s spiritual beliefs. When reciting the

Girl Scout Promise, it is acceptable to replace the word “God” with whatever word your spiritual beliefs dictate.

Dear Girl Scout members and friends,

2010 was a year of challenge and opportunity for Girl Scouts of Central Illinois. Like most non-profits, we

felt the effects of a struggling economy, but this challenge only reinforced our commitment to bringing the

Girl Scout program to girls throughout our council’s jurisdiction, as evidenced by the fact that we served

more than 20,000 girls in 2010, nearly half of whom required financial assistance in order to participate. We

anticipate serving even more girls this year as we currently sit at approximately 18,150 members with another

five months to go in the membership year.

Over 10,000 girls attended council-sponsored programs that delivered the Girl Scout Leadership

Experience. One hundred sixteen girls in our council achieved the Bronze, Silver, and Gold Award as part of

their path to leadership and giving back to their communities while another seventy-three are expected to

achieve the award as they wrap up their 2010-11 membership year. Over 2,300 girls attended GSCI

summer camps, and this included nearly $30,000 in campership assistance. We expect more than 2500 at

our camps this summer as we continue to assist those who could not otherwise attend these life-changing

opportunities. Of course, we could not offer this far-reaching impact without your support, and we look

forward to a continued partnership with our community friends and supporters in the coming years.

Other accomplishments from the past year include the development of online shopping and

eRegistration for membership, program, and camp, as we seek to make e-commerce more available as a

convenience to our customers and members. GSUSA launched a brand revitalization campaign in July of

2010 and GSCI has embraced the look and the message of the revitalized brand as we seek to reach even

more girls with the empowering programming that Girl Scouting provides for any girl who decides to join us.

One of the greatest testaments to the support from our communities was seen in the tremendous success

of Operation Cookie Share, a new addition to the Girl Scout Cookie Activity in 2010 that allowed cookie

customers to support Girl Scouts and U.S. soldiers by contributing Girl Scout cookies to women and men

serving in our country’s military. Thanks to a partnership with State Farm as well as the generous

contributions of our communities, a total of 84,000 boxes of cookies made their way to soldiers serving in

Iraq, Afghanistan, and the U.S in 2010 while another 58,476 boxes will be on their way following our most

recent cookie sale – far surpassing our hope for the success of this program. In response, we were gifted with

U.S. flags that had flown across the world, and we received numerous letters of gratitude from the recipients

of your generosity.

Moving forward, we expect to continue to meet challenges with unflagging commitment to bringing the Girl

Scout Leadership Experience to girls in central Illinois. With your continued support we are enthusiastic about

giving girls the opportunity to do great things – on their own behalf and on behalf of their communities. As we

continue our preparations for celebrating 100 years of Girl Scouting in 2012, we cannot thank you enough for

your commitment of time, talent, and resources on behalf of the girls we serve and we look forward to your

continued partnership as we draw near the conclusion of the first one hundred years of Girl Scouting and

move into Girl Scouting’s second century of building girls of courage, confidence, and character.

Sincerely,

Pam Kovacevich, CEO Elaine Young, Board Chair

BRONZE CROSS

Lifesaving Award

The Bronze Cross is a very special

award that has been part of the Girl

Scout program since the start of the

movement. Girl Scout councils

document specific actions that have

led to a person saving a life or attempting

to save a life, with national awards

determined by GSUSA. Girl Scout Lifesaving

awards, as part of the Girl Scout

program, are given to registered Girl

Scouts (not adults) who have saved

a human life or attempted to save it

under circumstances that

indicate heroism or risk to their own

lives and who have performed heroic

acts beyond the degree of maturity

and training to be expected at their

age.

Kaylee Rogers

Six year-old Kaylee Rogers was awakened

in the middle of a December night by the

smell of smoke. Kaylee immediately yelled

“Fire!” and woke her parents. She also

rescued her sleeping baby brother.

Abigail Vannoy

In February, seven year-old Abigail Vannoy

was awakened in the middle of the night by

the sound of a smoke alarm and fire in her

home. She woke her parents and younger

sister, and the family was able to escape the

fire unharmed.

Thanks to Kaylee’s and Abigial’s quick

thinking and courage, these families were

able to escape these fires safely.

The Girl Scout Leadership Experience

Girl leaders have been at the heart of Girl Scouting since its founding in 1912,

when Juliette Gordon Low recognized that developing girls’ leadership

abilities was critical for ensuring they would be the change-makers of the

future. Today’s complex and rapidly changing world requires a new kind of

leader – one who values diversity, inclusion, and collaboration and is

committed to improving neighborhoods, communities, and the world – and

Girl Scouting remains, as it always has been, the organization best positioned

to offer girls the tools they need to be successful leaders now and throughout

their lives.

As Girl Scouting approaches its 100th anniversary, it is more important than

ever that the Girl Scout program

Is girl-led – girls determine what they want to do and how they will do it

Promotes cooperative learning – girls work together to establish their

goals and how they will accomplish them

Fosters learning by doing – girls figure out what works, what doesn’t

work, and the best way to actualize their vision

In Girl Scouting, girls steer the ship of their own adventure, with caring adult

guidance and mentoring available. The result is courageous, confident young

women with strong convictions and the power to achieve their goals and

dreams while making a difference in the lives of others.

Accomplishing our mission requires a great deal of assistance beyond our

own dedicated staff. GSCI currently boasts an adult membership of over

5,000 committed and caring volunteers who help us deliver the Girl Scout

program throughout central Illinois. By their leadership example and

encouragement of teamwork, our volunteers show girls what is possible.

We are also grateful to the individual and corporate donors who help us to

grow our programs and make sure they are available to any girl who wishes

to participate. Our community partners allow us to reach out to girls who

do not have the means to reach out to us first. In these ways the mission of

Girl Scouting extends beyond schools, family homes, and Girl Scout service

centers to enrich and be enriched by all facets of our communities.


MEMBERSHIP

The Girl Scout program is available to any girl age 5 – 17 through six

pathways which include camp, special events, themed activities in

series, travel, virtual participation (coming in 2012), and the

traditional troop.

Membership Highlights:

• GSCI’s membership was comprised of 20,381 girl members and

5, 178 adult volunteers, of which 676 are lifetime members

• We hold a 14.68% market share, well above the 10% national

average for market share, and boast a 1:3.9 adult to girl ratio

• In 2010 we launched eRegistration, a fast, easy, convenient way

for established troops to re-register their membership and for

members to register for council-sponsored programs.

ACTIVITIES

Program

10,338 girls were served with the Girl Scout Leadership Experience in

2010.

A new program initiative, the Monthly Patch Program, was introduced

as a way to help girls learn more about their communities and the

world and discover new ways to make a difference. Monthly Patch

Program modules included topics such as Women and the Arts,

Environmental Education, Self-esteem, and learning more about

Illinois and the world beyond our borders. In all, 4,674 girls earned

patches signifying their increased knowledge and understanding of

themselves and the world around them.

More than 1,600 girls participated in council-sponsored service

projects – nearly twice as many as the previous year – in addition to

the many service projects that individual girls and troops plan and

execute on their own.

Thanks to collaborations with Millikin University, ADM, and Lockheed

Martin, Girl Scout Cadettes participated in STEM programming that

included activities such as DNA extraction, 3-D computer

programming, digital music composition, Claymation movie making,

and an introduction to the world of commercial art.

Girl Scout Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors made a 17-day

European excursion that included stops in London, Paris, Versailles,

Lucerne, Adelboden, Florence, and Rome. Trip participants enjoyed

visiting two of the four World Girl Scout Centers, Pax Lodge and

Our Chalet.

WHAT DID YOU DO TODAY?


Outdoor Education

GSCI Outdoor Education provides unique opportunities for girls to develop

strength and confidence through their connection with the natural world.

Through outdoor education girls experience activities ranging from boating

to horseback riding to taking care of the environment.

Over 2,300 girls attended camp and outdoor education sessions at

one of four ACA-accredited GSCI camps or partnering locations.

634 girls attended resident camp.

154 girls attended mini resident camp.

913 girls attended day camp.

616 girls attended weekend outdoor education activities.

In total, 11.4% of our girl membership took advantage of camp

opportunities in 2010.

Product Sales

The Girl Scout Cookie Activity is the largest all-girl business and financial

literacy program in the country. Girls who participate in council-sponsored

product sales activities develop skills of entrepreneurship, goal-setting,

teamwork, and more, all while having fun. Proceeds from product sale

activities remain in our communities to support the Girl Scout program

locally.

5,724 girls in 737 troops participated in the Fall Product Activity.

14,195 girls participated in the Girl Scout Cookie Activity – 89% of girl

membership at the time of the activity.

In partnership with State Farm and the generous support of our

communities, those 14,000+ girls sent 84,000 boxes of cookies to

military troops serving in Iraq, Afghanistan, and the U.S. through

Operation Cookie Share.

More than 2,500 girls participated in council-sponsored Cookie

Rallies to develop marketing skills, financial literacy, and goal setting

strategies.
