Girls with microscope for Volunteer Essentials

Meet the Expert

Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes is launching a new virtual program, “Meet the Expert!” Girl Scouts of all ages, family members, and community members are invited to tune in to our Facebook page to view interviews, tours, activities, and much more done by experts in your communities! Many of the experts will be live in the chat during the event to answer any questions you may have.

Although this series is not badge-earning, many of the videos will directly tie to a badge! Videos will also be available on the website to view on your own time! These videos will take place on the first and third Wednesday of every month at 6 PM CST as we continue to collect videos!

Meet ALL of Our Experts!
