Discoveree
Dynamic adult learning workshops all in one location! 
Also available to girls in grades 9-12.

Date: January 12, 2019 
Location: Cesar Chavez Middle School, Union City

Discoveree provides knowledge, support, a forum to foster friendships, and networking opportunities to help you gain skills to further enrich the lives of Girl Scouts. Choose from a variety of workshops, such as outdoor skills, songs, games, crafts, and cutting-edge topics about girl development, tailored to your specific Girl Scout needs and goals. 

Thank you to our wonderful volunteer workshop leaders and you, our Girl Scout volunteers for helping us celebrate our 50th golden anniversary of Discoveree in 2018!

Here are just a few comments we received:

  • "Gaining new skills/knowledge that one can share with our troop is the most valuable thing about attending Discoveree." 
  • "Being able to see and do some hands on activities like SWAPS, games and even getting to review the STEM program guide and meeting boxes in person was valuable and useful. I have lots of ideas and practical knowledge now for my troop." 
  • "Getting energized by learning new things and chatting with leaders throughout the San Francisco Bay Area." 
  • "The people—meeting and speaking with other adult volunteers who value Girl Scouts and making great experiences possible for the girls."
