MARQUETTE - The National Inclusion Project has partnered with Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes to implement Let's ALL Play - Inclusion in Recreational Programs. The partnership will bring GSNWGL's inclusion initiatives another step forward, ensuring that girls with cognitive, social, and emotional disabilities continue to be integrated into the Girl Scout leadership program where they will learn new skills, participate in activities, and interact with others for an inclusive Girl Scout experience. The partnership will also provide training and resources to GSNWGL's inclusion staff who in turn will educate volunteers and girls about various disabilities and how to ensure that every girl is included in Girl Scout activities. As part of this initiative, the National Inclusion Project has awarded GSNWGL $10,000.
The National Inclusion Project is a national nonprofit organization that creates awareness, provides services, and funds programs for people of all abilities with the goal to create an environment for children where inclusion is embraced.
In partnership with over 6,000 adult volunteers, GSNWGL serves nearly 20,000 girls in 58 counties across northern Wisconsin and Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Now in its 100th year, Girl Scouts is the world's preeminent leadership development organization for girls, building girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.
