Troops 3197, 3198, and 3229 recently gathered together to work on the “Tooth Fairy” patch program, learning about oral hygiene and dentistry. They were fortunate to have both an orthodontist (Dr. Catherine Woo) and a pediatric dentist (Dr. Cecilia Kolstad) volunteer their time to help them. Interacting with the two successful female professionals was empowering for the girls and made the experience extra special!

Dear Girl Scouts Friends and Family: As I thought about the year ahead, I was reminded of the 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. Our Girl Scouts of all ages carry out this Promise in ways large and small all across the city, and the height of girls' efforts to fulfill the promise can be seen in the Gold Award program, which turns 100 this year. Over the past century, girls have created and executed their own projects that address a need in their community. Examples include building a sustainable garden to supply a local food pantry where the demand for food supply exceeded the pantry's capacity to respond; creating and running a health fair for adults and seniors in a low-income community to give them access to preventive care; developing and running a college fair in a neighborhood that had low college attendance rates and no local college fair; and much more. This year, we hope to see 100 high school Girl Scouts earn their Gold Award. Through pursuing this prestigious award, girls fulfill the Promise while developing leadership skills and the confidence to lead. These experiences are critical to their future success. We at GSGNY also make a promise to our Girl Scouts. We promise to help them become leaders in their communities and beyond. We increasingly do this through new and expanded STEM programs and through business and entrepreneurship opportunities. This year, we're expanding our efforts to further empower girls through expanded public advocacy work. You'll see us more active and outspoken about policies and programs that provide opportunities for girls, especially low-income girls in New York who need more opportunities to succeed. We have the track record that proves our programs lead to success, and are therefore uniquely positioned to take on this advocacy role. Here's to a great 2016 for all of us. Yours in Girl Scouting, Barbara Murphy-Warrington CEO, Girl Scouts of Greater New York
