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 face-to-face volunteering. Each year, Kappa Deltas across the country devote over 125,000 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.
Kappa Delta collegiate volunteers get to see firsthand the difference they make in girls’ lives while learning important leadership skills in the process.
As one of our main national philanthropies, the Girl Scouts of the USA is one of the central organizations that Texas Kappa Delta devotes its time to. Each year, Texas Kappa Delta hosts a variety of events for our local Girl Scout of the USA troops, mainly the Girl Scouts of Central Texas. Our main initiative with the Girl Scouts is our Confidence Coalition, through which we encourage confidence in young ladies.
During the school year, we host weekly badge workshops at our home for Girl Scouts around the Austin area. Kappa Deltas spend time with the young ladies, working on activities so the Girl Scouts can obtain their badges. Through our hands-on interaction, we hope to instill confidence and inspire the young girls to become bright leaders.
