IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM GIRL SCOUTS HEART OF THE SOUTH: At this time, out of an abundance of caution due to the current situation regarding the COVID-19 virus, Girl Scouts Heart of the South is CANCELLING OR POSTPONING ALL COUNCIL and COMMUNITY-PARTNER SPONSORED PROGRAMS AND EVENTS INCLUDING THE SOAR MIDDLE SCHOOL LEADERSHIP RETREAT THROUGH MAY 31, 2020. GSHS will be issuing refunds for any cancelled event.

Before becoming butterflies, caterpillars go through phases of metamorphosis in which they grow their wings so that they are able to SOAR independently and create their own path.

Girls experience similar phases of metamorphosis, one being throughout middle school as they prepare to transition to high school and beyond. This transition provides girls with a new sense of independence.

At SOAR Leadership Retreat, Girl Scouts currently in middle school will have the space to consider the changes they are experiencing and will continue to experience. Girls will be given the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of their power and leadership capacity. We will discuss topics ranging from self-compassion to how to create positive change.

The goal of SOAR is for Girl Scouts to leave feeling empowered, confident, and ready to spread their wings and embrace independence.
