I am happy to serve as Co-Chair for the Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania's Take the Lead 2014 Lehigh Valley event!

What is Take the Lead?

Take the Lead honors the community's most distinguished women, whose leadership and achievements have made the world a better place. Girl Scouts of all ages produce this unique leadership program from start to finish - developing public speaking, networking and presentation skills - as they serve as masters of ceremonies, award presenters and hosts for the event. Many of the participating girls cite the experience a s a true highlight of their Girls Scout career, as they are able to forge long-lasting mentorships with their honorees and connect directly with their community.

Take the Lead is much more than an awards program...it is a unique leadership development program for girls, during which these capable young ladies become leaders themselves.
