When my daughter was younger and in grade school, I became a scout leader. I knew it was the only way she would join. She did and stay through to her junior year. She would share that it wasn’t for girls like her. I showed her that girls like her are exactly perfect for scouts. I had an inclusive troop, perfect for girls that were quiet introverts, advocates, scientists, you get the picture. I had a troop of girls from all over not just assigned community. We built projects that the guided and shared safe spaces to just connect. Those girls tayed connected even past when it was considered cool to be a “scout”. We weren’t the most adventurous or wilderness centered. But these girls stayed and supported each other and learned. It was a great group. Inclusion matters so much.
