The journey of Girl Scout leadership is unique for every girl. Some girls attend a ConnectZ troop meeting and find incredible, unexpected leadership within. Others, like Molly, see a community need and take responsibility to address it.
Molly saw a need and created a movement.
Molly was one of many high school students feeling the sting of loss. In a short period of time four students in three high schools had committed suicide.
She knew that depression and suicidal thoughts can affect anyone. The topic was difficult, filled with pain and insecurities. But Molly was brave, and she saw an opportunity to raise awareness, save lives and make a difference. There is strength in community, so Molly brought the community together.
She partnered with The Suicide Prevention Collaborative and created an event, “Together It Gets Better.” Molly assembled a panel of teens to have an honest, open talk. More than 300 people were affected by the conversation that evening. Some then decided to continue promoting prevention and participated in a 5K fundraising event.
Molly earned her Gold Award for her suicide prevention efforts. Lives were affected and possibly changed because Molly acted as a true leader.
“I have a lot of self-confidence. I’m a pretty confident person, but it definitely changed me as a leader and made me a better leader.” Molly, on achieving her Gold Award
