"I am honored to congratulate these remarkable Girl Scouts on their selection to the council’s first-ever Youth Leadership Council," said Marci Henderson, CEO of Girl Scouts of Wisconsin – Badgerland Council. "These young women have the opportunity to put into action the leadership skills they’re developing while helping guide decisions that directly impact Girl Scouts around Badgerland. These girls will truly serve as the voice of girls for Girl Scouts. ” The 14 members were selected to the YLC through a council-wide application process open to all Girl Scouts in grades 9-12.
