Council Events

Here at Girl Scouts of Ohio's Heartland we host a varity of special events throughout the year aimed at providing girls and volunteers experiences that not only help them grow as individuals but also create memories that last a lifetime. Below you will find descriptions and dates for these events. The information we provide will change frequently so make sure to check here often. 

State of the Girl

Join us for State of the Girl, a community event that explores issues affecting girls today.

Keynote speaker, Sophia Mohr, chief innovation officer for Central Ohio Transit Authority (COTA), will share her journey and how she overcame obstacles to become a successful leader at COTA. Guests will also hear from Lily C., a Girl Scout who is doing incredible things, and participate in table talk conversations that will focus on challenges girls face, including STEM literacy.

We hope you can join this dynamic conversation with community members and leaders to ensure the workforce of the future is filled with strong, confident women. Together we can unleash the power of girls.
