Description

On Sunday, April 30, 2017 from 2:30pm to 4:30pm in Meeting Room A at Fountaindale Public Library (300 W. Briarcliff Road, Bolingbrook, IL 60440), The Parents of Girl Scout Troop #75142 (http://girlscouttroop75142.scoutlander.com/) will host Don't be mean behind the screen: Perceptions of cyber-bullying and tactics to address it. The workshop’s purpose is to explore the perceptions of cyber-bullying and to offer useful tactics and informational resources to combat this issue. The interactive workshop will be conducted by Megan Brooks (Chief Investigator, High Tech Crime Bureau) from the Will County State’s Attorney's Office. Scouts from Troop #75142 will present the video they created to address cyber-bullying, and the event will provide a vehicle for the fulfillment of the requirements for their Silver Award as they venture through their MEDIA journey. The event will be followed by a "meet and greet" dessert reception. This event will be open to those who are ages 9 and older. Proceeds will underwrite the cost of the event.

Girl Scouts began over 100 years ago with one woman, Girl Scouts’ founder Juliette Gordon “Daisy” Low, who believed in the power of every girl. Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. Our mission sounds simple, but it ultimately changes lives by building girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.

Girl Scout Troop #75142 is comprised of four ambitious, fun-loving girls (ages 11 to 13) who reside in Bolingbrook, IL. The Scouts and The Parents of Troop #75142 have made a commitment to forge stronger bonds with one another and to positively impact our communities during 2017. With your support, we can reach those goals!
