As we continue our efforts to flatten the curve of COVID-19 in Middle Tennessee, we hope girls are staying well both physically and emotionally. We know community and connection are vitally important to our emotional well-being, and much of our traditional Girl Scout programming is based on that idea. Though we can’t be together face-to-face, we want to encourage girls to stay engaged and involved with their communities and friends, so we’ve compiled a list of ways for girls to connect while social distancing at home!
