Stonehill Honored By Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts For Community Partnership
May 07, 2012
Stonehill was recently recognized by the Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts with its Keystone Award, given to community-based partners that have been integral in the success of their FaB Factor Program by providing resources and time.
Through Stonehill's Into The Streets Program, the College has partnered with the Girl Scouts Brockton-based FaB Program for the past three years. The program serves low-income girls between the ages of 5-18 residing in urban neighborhoods and encourages girls to discover their inner "fabulousness," whether it be their proficiency in math or the ability to speak confidently on issues which they finds important.
As ITS Co-Coordinators, Brittany Daniels '12 (above) and Meghan Harley '12 (left), who received the award on behalf of the College at the Girl Scouts annual conference, have worked extensively with the FaB Program. This year, a total of 84 girls from the Brockton area took part in the FaB Program, largely due to Daniels and Harley's efforts.
