INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – It’s not just about selling cookies and having fun. Girl Scout executives of central Indiana are concerned about the well-being of girls here.
The Girl Scout research institute ranks Indiana 36th in the nation on an overall index of well-being, education, emotional health and extracurricular activities.
The CEO of Girl Scouts of central Indiana met with community leaders Monday to discuss ways to improve the ranking.
“Some of the states that have better statistics than ours have more walking trails more youth activities so we’re looking for those kinds of things to help here in Indiana,” Deborah Hearn Smith the CEO Girl Scouts of Central Indiana said.
Girl Scouts of central Indiana serves more than 40,000 girls in 45 counties.
They say they will continue their education programs they already have in place.
