Take the Lead 2020 COVID-19 Updates

An Important Accouncement about Take the Lead 2020

As we continue to monitor the COVID-19 updates from the Centers for Disease Control, the World Health Organization and the PA Department of Health concerning our nine-county footprint and surrounding cities, we are taking all possible and appropriate measures to ensure girls continue to have a safe, fun, one-of-a-kind experience at Girl Scouts. Out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to cancel our Take the Lead Berks and Lehigh Valley events scheduled for Tuesday, April 7 and Tuesday, April 28.

While the in-person events have been cancelled the spirit of Take the Lead remains. Take the Lead is the Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania’s unique leadership program that forges long-lasting, valuable mentorships with our community’s most distinguished women leaders whose work and achievements make the world a better place. The program is for the girls, by the girls and provides them with the professional development experience to become the future leaders of tomorrow.

Check back for additional updates as we determine the safest way to recognize our honorees, sponsors and Girl Scouts.
