Discover, connect and take action – Girl Scouts encourages girls to reach their highest potential. Through the Juliette Low Leadership Society (JLLS), we are working to reach every girl in western Oklahoma and help them become leaders of courage, confidence and character. This group shares the message of the positive influence Girl Scouts makes in the life of a girl, while garnering financial support to provide enhanced opportunities for girls. Check out the ways you can get involved with the Juliette Low Leadership Society in your community.
Metro Oklahoma City JLLS
Founded in 2005, the Oklahoma City Juliette Low Leadership Society has raised more than $2.7 million to support girls through the support of more than 200 annual members and 500 community leaders.
For a community of just 30,000, the Juliette Low Leadership Society in Enid has made a huge impact on Girl Scouts in their community since its inception in 2007. This influential group of community advocates has helped raise nearly $200,000 for Girl Scout programs and opportunities in Enid.
In 2012, the Ardmore Juliette Low Leadership Society kicked off its first luncheon, and has raised nearly $45,000 to support Girl Scouting in Ardmore. The society provides the funds to support new program opportunities, increased troop activities and support for girls.
In 2014, Lawton-Fort Sill launched the Juliette Low Leadership Society with a celebrity-chef black tie event, An Evening with Juliette Low. More than 200 community leaders have helped raise nearly $60,000 to support Lawton-Fort Sill area Girl Scouts.
Looking to get involved in the community? Our young professionals group is for men and women in the Oklahoma City Metro area. This group is raising funds to endow the first ever Gold Award Scholarship Fund for our council. This fund provides college scholarships to young women who have earned their Gold Award, the highest Girl Scout award. GS Young Professionals hosts two events each year: Earn Your Shopping Badge in April and Cookies & Cocktails in August. There are three ways to get involved with GS Young Professionals.
Earn Your Shopping Badge committee is a day of shopping at Classen Curve and Nichols Hills Plaza where sponsor stores donate percentages of their proceeds to the Gold Award Scholarship Fund. Join us for a fun day of shopping for a good cause!
We’re thinking outside the cookie cutter with the Cookies and Cocktails committee. This 21 and over evening of decadent deserts and delicious hors d’oeuvres inspired by Girl Scout Cookies is made possible thanks to the support of generous sponsors and guests. People come back year after year to sample what the creative chefs come up with.
The Gold Award committee supports girls who earned the Gold Award by awarding two $500 scholarships for college each spring. The chair is responsible for the distribution of the application and the promotion of the scholarship to Gold Award recipients. All members serve on the selection committee and attend the Girl Award Ceremony in May.
Whether you were a Girl Scout growing up, or would like to get involved with the premier leadership organization for girls now, GS Young Professionals is a fun way to show your support. For more information, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or join today.
