The Entrepreneur Center for Girls at Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee (EC) provides girls with the opportunity to create a blueprint for their academic careers and professional life goals. Through a comprehensive, interactive, content-driven teaching model, girls gain skills in the five core pillars of entrepreneurship: business, leadership development, fiscal responsibility, presentation skills, and interpersonal skills.
Since its inception in 2017, the EC initiative and program delivery have continued to evolve to better serve girls in our region. As a result, GSMIDTN has developed and now offers multiple opportunities for girls to gain skills in entrepreneurship. Further, what was originally tailored to older girls in grades 9-12, the program is now extending to younger girls to foster an interest in and excitement for EC programming.
Entrepreneur Center Opportunities
- Entrepreneur Center Patch ProgramGSMIDTN developed a patch program that encourages participation in EC-sponsored activities focused on finance, marketing, and leadership. Girls earn the EC patch after completing the necessary requirements.
- Bright Ideas Check-Out ProgramA “check-out” program provides troop leaders with all materials, resources, and activities needed to teach girls about starting a small business, effective marketing, and budgeting. This allows girls and troops to complete the requirements and work towards the EC patch at the most convenient time and location – often at their regular troop meetings!
