On Wednesday, Sept. 17, Nancy King, customized program specialist, and Stephanie Upfold, assistant troop leader, volunteered their time at the Latch Key Program. This program allows girls enrolled in Latch Key the opportunity participate in the Girl Scout Program free of charge.
The Girl Scouts program strives to “build girls of courage, confidence, and character to make the world a better place,” stated King.
The girl scouts use the book The Journey to earn their badges. The volunteers provide programs to teach self-confidence, anti-bullying, and safety. The Girl Scout Latch Key troop, which is only for Latch Key students, will continue meeting at 4 p.m. every Wednesday. Latch Key is a United Way organization.
