Additional Program Opportunities

In an effort to provide a comprehensive schedule of program opportunities, Girl Scouts of Southwest Texas often partners with community agencies to provide special events just for Girl Scouts. Due to printing deadlines, often these activities are not found in the Pathways Guide. The program flyer links below describe the many exciting events for Girl Scouts and their families. We encourage you to take advantage of the great opportunities for Girl Scouts throughout the area.

2011 San Antonio Young Women's Leadership Symposium
On behalf of the Texas Diversity Council, all girls in 8th-10th grades are invited to the 2011 Greater San Antonio Young Women's Leadership Symposium.
This FREE symposium is slated for Saturday, October 15 from 7:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m. at the University of Texas San Antonio 1604 campus.
This event will be a half-day of mentoring and interaction between young ladies and caring, accomplished business women, including GSSWT's very own Anna Maria Chávez. The 2010 event proved to be motivating and impactful for the attendees, and this year’s event should be even better! Get the flyer and recommendation form here.

The American Camp Association and Nature Rocks
