Kappa Delta’s Work with Girl Scouts

SGirlScout3.jpgIn 1998, Kappa Delta Sorority welcomed Girl Scouts of the USA as one of its national philanthropies. Through this ever-growing partnership, Kappa Delta members are making great things happen in the lives of countless girls across the country. Kappa Delta is proud to help Girl Scouts build girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place.

Kappa Delta collegians and alumnae serve as mentors and volunteers, reinforcing our common values of honesty, integrity, friendship and leadership. Collegiate and alumnae chapters serve Girl Scouts in their area by hosting confidence-building International Girls Day celebrations, educational events and other activities that help Girl Scouts learn about life on campus. Girl Scouts who take part in Kappa Delta-sponsored events are eligible for a special Kappa Delta participation patch.

Further, the Kappa Delta Foundation contributes annually to the Girl Scout Gold Award program, providing each Girl Scout National Young Woman of Distinction award recipient a scholarship toward her college tuition, as well as additional scholarships to the five runners-up. Hailing from across the nation, the honorees embody the outstanding leadership, personal development and commitment necessary to earn this prestigious honor. Kappa Delta has also provided funding for Gold Award expos at Girl Scout Councils across the country.

Each Kappa Delta collegiate chapter holds at least four events per year with local Girl Scouts. Kappa Delta chapters work with the Girl Scout council in their area to promote the events they plan to Girl Scout troop leaders and parents.

If you are a Girl Scout troop leader or parent, your Girl Scout and her troop are welcome at Kappa Delta- Girl Scout events. You can find the Kappa Delta chapter nearest you in our chapter directory. You may direct questions about specific events to the local Kappa Delta chapter hosting the event.

For general questions about the Kappa Delta-Girl Scout partnership, you may send an email to communityservice@kappadelta.org. If you are a troop leader, please include your name, contact information, whether or not you are a Kappa Delta, number of years you have been a leader, age level of troop and Girl Scout council name. If you know someone who is a leader, please pass this information along to her.
