Thinking of the Future, Hartford Girl Scouts Tour Colleges and Universities


April 29, 2010

April 29, 2010 - This spring, Hartford area Girl Scouts took a journey to prepare for their future. Through Girl Scouts of Connecticut's College Tour program, the Girl Scout Seniors and Ambassadors were able to tour a variety of colleges and universities in Washington DC and the surrounding areas.

While in Washington DC the girls got a chance to tour the city and its many important historical sites before visiting Corcoran College to learn about the school's offerings. The girls also traveled to Maryland where they were able to tour both Lincoln University and Cabrini College. Before returning to Hartford, the group visited Philadelphia to tour Philadelphia University and Temple University. "Most of the girls that participated in the tour this year are planning on applying to at least one of the schools we visited," said Tamara Williams, Program Initiative Manager for Girl Scouts of Connecticut. "Some of the girls could not see themselves on a college campus, but, because of our tour, have decided that they can do it and will be applying to college."

As part of Girl Scouts of Connecticut's College Pathways initiative, the College Tour program provides girls with the information they need to make educated choices regarding their future. The program is one of discovery for the girls. They learn what different types of colleges and universities can offer them, and come to understand their own interests and abilities as well. One of this year's participants put it this way, "Before this trip college was nothing to me, but thanks to this trip college is for me!"

The College Tour program is made available thanks to support from Travelers.
