Right now, Girl Scouts are camping out, creating dog parks, and cleaning our beaches. They’re making new friends, saying no to bullies, and creating bonds with local senior citizens. They’re creating new laws to protect other kids, the environment, and animals. They’re making useful objects from what would have been trash, building robots to help disabled people, and traveling the world together. On top of all that? They’re learning the ropes as Girl Scout Cookie CEOs.
Get ready to be inspired by the amazing stories of Girl Scouts and Girl Scout volunteers.
After learning about the importance of cybersecurity, Esther decided to create a self-paced educational course to help educate Hawaii’s older adults about protecting themselves from the many online threats that have been magnified by the COVID-19 pandemic. Esther’s curriculum, Cyber Safety 101, has been shared with AARP Hawaii, the Lanakila Multi-Purpose Senior Center, One Kalakaua Senior Living and the Plaza at Waikiki. Her project’s powerful vision and meaningful impact on the community has earned her national recognition as a 2022 Prudential Emerging Visionary .
