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.
A Note From Our VP - Community Service
As Aggie Kappa Deltas, we hold a Girl Scout event every month. The September event where the Junior Yell Leaders and Miss Reveille come and lead a Yell Practice for the Girl Scouts is always a favorite. Girl Scouts and Kappa Delta alike love getting together in December to go caroling on Sorority Row at the other sorority houses. In April, we give a campus tour of A&M and do an Aggie Scavenger hunt with the Girl Scouts having them find some of A&M’s most well-known campus sites.
Doing these events and hanging out with the Girls Scouts is definitely one of our favorite parts of being a Kappa Delta!
