“As a Boy Scout myself, I understand the importance and significance that a program like the Girl Scouts can make in a young person’s life. I am happy and honored that I was able to educate the members of Troop #12485 on how the government works and help them earn their ‘Inside Government’ badges,” said Sen. Albers.
Sen. Albers gave the Troop a historic, behind the scenes tour of the Capitol. During which, the Troop learned the process of how laws are made and are now actively working to provide Sen. Albers with suggestions for new laws.
The Girl Scouts were founded in 1912 in Savannah, Ga. They are the largest organization for girls in the world and strive to build girls of courage, confidence and character. Through activities in science and technology, business and economic literacy, and outdoor and environmental awareness, the Girl Scouts provide girls with opportunities for fun and friendship, while fostering the development of leadership skills and self-esteem.
