In 1998, Kappa Delta began a national collaboration with Girl Scouts, an organization of over three million girls. With this partnership, Kappa Delta became the first and only National Panhellenic Conference group to adopt the Girl Scouts as a national philanthropy.
Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place. The same could be said for Kappa Delta as it relates to young women. With common values and a commitment to leadership development, Kappa Delta and Girl Scouts are sisters at heart.
Girl Scouts provides Kappa Delta members opportunities for hands-on volunteering. Each year, Kappa Deltas devote over 175,000 hours to working with Girl Scouts in their communities. Popular KD Girl Scout events are self-esteem workshops, campus tours, International Girls Day celebrations and anti-bullying workshops. Girl Scouts who participate in Kappa Delta events can earn special patches including the Kappa Delta/Girl Scout patch and the International Girls Day patch.
Girls of all ages, ethnicities and socio-economic backgrounds are impacted by this partnership. Kappa Delta collegiate volunteers get to see firsthand the difference they make in girls’ lives while learning important leadership skills in the process.
Epsilon Lambda chapter hosts many events with local Girl Scout Troops. Each year, we celebrate International Girls Day. We host workshops regarding friendship, anti-bullying, confidence, and more!
