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.
Epsilon Chapter of Kappa Delta works closely with the Girl Scout troops throughout our community. Each semester Epsilon hosts events for the girl scouts that promote friendship and confidence within the young girls. Members get to work hand in hand with the girls and personally take part in the enrichment of their lives as they spend the day participating in activities and games with specific troops. Our events involve Uniquely Me projects such as "Art to Wear" and "Miss Manner Tea Party," as well as fitness enhancing programs like "Dancercise" and confidence builders like "Stand Up Against Bullies." In the spring Epsilon participates in "Tag-A-Long." This is an event in which an underprivileged Girl Scout troop is invited to sell cookies to the LSU community in our chapter room. In 2017, we helped the troop to sell over 2,000 boxes of cookies! In addition, Kappa Delta has donated $10,000 annually to the Girl Scout Gold Award Program.
