Girl Scouts

The Mission of Girl Scouts is to build girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place.  Since 2008 Kokomo Urban Outreach has sponsored a Girl Scout Troop.  Over 90 girls, in grades K-12 have been a part of KUO Girl Scout Troop 3033.

The girls have experienced all that Girl Scouts has to offer.  They have earned badges, completed journeys and learned new skills.  They have celebrated Juliette Gordon Low's birthday, Thinking Day and the Girl Scout Anniversary.  The girls have taken field trips within Howard County,and throughout Central Indiana Council and celebrated the 100th Anniversary of Girl Scouting in Washington DC. The Scouts have made crafts, cooked and attended summer camp.  They have learned finances, how to operate a business and leadership skills.

All of this has been made possible with the help of parents and adult volunteers, local churches and cookie sales.  If you are interested in becoming a volunteer or would like to purchase Girl Scout Cookies, please contact Pam Grohman at 765.461.0184.
