The New Year has officially begun and the GSSNE Membership team members have been busy little bees planning the next membership recruitment campaign. The winter months are the best months to reach out to families who have just begun their kindergarten journeys and are settled and ready to get their girls involved in extracurricular activities.

It’s also about that time to think about girls who will be entering Kindergarten in the fall and provide them with sample programming and inspire interest to join in early spring/summer through an exclusive membership offer. Enter two new initiatives this season: the Current Kindergarten and 1st Grade Girl Recruitment (formerly known as the Winter Daisy Push Campaign) and the Pre-K Girl Recruitment (known as Daisy Launch) initiatives.

Some of the successful portions of last year’s campaigns will be incorporated into this year’s Pre-K membership recruitment programming, which includes two entertaining (for both the kids and our staff); “I Think Snot”: teaching kids to keep their germs to themselves and “I Pledge What?”: an engaging breakdown on The Pledge of Allegiance and what it means. We will once again be providing each classroom we visit with a baggie of goodies, including stickers, hair bands (with our website on it) and an invitation to a culminating Luau event at the end of summer, like the one GSSNE hosted last year.

While we’re beginning these visits with preschools, we’re also thrilled to be strengthening our relationships with our public libraries by creating new and interesting events

welcoming the public in

to learn more about

Girl Scouts and have

thoughtful presentations

and conversations about

volunteerism with adults

in the process.
