When the new school year starts up, everyone looks for extra-curricular activities to engage and stimulate their kids. Finding something that is fun and enables parents to engage with their daughters in a meaningful way is especially hard. USA Girl Scouts Overseas, which has a chapter in Qatar, combines skill-building and teamwork while inspiring leadership and giving back to the community.
Although I wasn’t a Girl Scout myself, when I heard about Girl Scouts Overseas, I knew it would be a great fit for my daughter. What I didn’t know was that it would be a great fit for me too. My daughter signed up, and I volunteered as her troop leader. The two of us had a year filled with fantastic, unforgettable experiences with an amazing group of girls and adult volunteers.
