"Not all girls know this experience," Girl Scout, Aleya Brittain said of her experience as a scout.

Aleya and the other girls of troop 5619 and 5703 have done a lot of good in their first decade.

"Every first Friday of the month, I go to the VA to help the veterans," Destiny Davis said. 

"We've dont a lot of things. We've helped a lot of people. We did for the tornadoes, we sent off things for the people in Oklahoma,"  Halie Flethcer said of her troop.

These girls volunteer, they go camping, they mentor the young daisy scouts, and they've got some big ambitions.

"I'm thinking about, like, the possibilities that we could have if more people came. Like,we could join together and make a better, a more peaceful world," Cassie, one of the scouts said. 

Giving girls the confidence to dream big is exactly what troop leader Hester Harrold wants to do with her 28 girls.

"We have lots of learning experiences. We like to teach the girls how to be community, active in the community, as far as community service and to really learn how to be themselves.  Because in today's day and time, it's real hard   because girls want to follow the other girls, and we really teach the girls to be who they are," Harrold said.

Now the Girl Scouts of Texas Oklahoma Plains is encouraging others to join in. They're hosintg a big recruitment rally right beofre school starts up. The cost for a girl to join for the entire year is just fifteen dollars. If you want to get more information, head out the the recruitment event at the Amarillo Zoo, Saturday, August 17th from 1 pm - 4 pm. It's free and open to the public.
