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.
As Kappa Deltas, our mission is to enhance confidence in our members and that is exactly what we do our local Girl Scouts. We host many different events with the Girl Scouts to teach them values that we, as Kappa Deltas, believe are important for all young girls to understand including respect, friendship, and self-confidence! Every year, we invite the Girl Scouts to come to Oregon State for a campus tour as well as International Girls Day, which is held every November with the theme "She Can Do Anything!" We also host different events for the girls to come hang out with the Kappa Deltas including a haunted house, tea parties, fashion shows, and other exciting events. If you know of a Girl Scout Troop that would like to get involved with Kappa Delta please contact, Natalie Cornejo at firstname.lastname@example.org.
