Girl Scouting in America reached its 100 the Anniversary in 2012. Reflecting the culture we observed in our evaluation projects with them, they celebrated the milestone by examining the impact they have had on the lives of young girls and women across the country. Their research shows that “approximately one in every two adult women (49%) in the U.S. has at some point been a member of Girl Scouts; the average length of time a girl spends in Girl Scouting is four years. There are currently an estimated 59 million Girl Scout alumnae living in the U.S.” The report called, Girl Scouting Works: The Alumnae Impact Study goes on to say how girls involved in scouting have indicated positive outcomes in important areas such as achievement in education, participation in volunteering, civic engagement, higher income and perceptions of self.

The Improve Group has recently been working with the national organization Nonprofits HR Solutions on collecting data for their 2012 Nonprofit Employment Trends Survey. Resulting information on nonprofits’ likelihood to hire in 2012 was posted in an article in the Huffington Post on March 28th. The article entitled Nonprofit Jobs: 43% Of Charities Plan To Hire In 2012 (Where To Look) includes an accompanying slideshow on where recruiters go to scout out potential job applicants.
We are pleased to see this important report get this type of coverage. Congratulations to NPHRS for putting together a yearly survey on such a worthwhile topic .
