Girls, you can 'Rock the Capitol'

The Eagle-Tribune

---- — CONCORD — High-school age girls with an interest in government service and advocacy are invited to apply for Girls Rock the Capitol, a legislative internship led by Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains. No Girl Scout experience is needed.

This intensive program links girls to female legislators, who act as mentors, while girls learn about and work on issues affecting the future of New Hampshire from inside the Statehouse.

Through GRTC girls become critical thinkers, work as a team to advocate for themselves and others, prepare for leadership roles in their schools and communities, and have a rich understanding of the Granite State democratic process.

To apply, contact Nicole Nolan toll-free at 888-474-9686, Ext. 142, or nnolan@girlscoutsgwm.org. Applications are due Oct. 31.

Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains serves more than 14,000 girls across New Hampshire and Vermont, thanks to 5,500 trained and dedicated volunteers. See www.girlscoutsgwm.org or call 888-474-9686 to register or join.
