Encuentro de Chicas Latinas de las Girl Scouts

January 2019

More than 30 girls gathered at James Lee Community Center in Falls Church, VA for “Encuentro,” a day-long leadership conference for Latina girls in middle and high school. Three Latina women shared their experiences, in English and Spanish, as first-generation Americans who pursued their dreams and became highly successful in their respective careers. Our Program Officer, Caitlin Furey, enjoyed being a volunteer facilitator for two workshops for the middle school girls: “Budgeting & Saving” and “Financing Your Future.”
