Discover, Connect, Take Action: Girl Scouts
Rocky Mountain College hosts a Girl Scout troop on campus as part of the memorandum of understanding RMC has signed with the Girl Scouts of Montana and Wyoming office.
The goal of the program collaboration with Girl Scouts will be to support efforts on helping “girls gain leadership skills, learn the importance of education and discover the impact they can have on their communities and the world. By showing girls that higher education is a worthwhile and attainable goal; more girls are encouraged to pursue higher education and a more secure future outside of poverty.”
In addition to hosting the Girl Scout troop, RMC will encourage faculty and staff to present on topics such as chemistry, business, economics, computer science, art, aviation and equestrian academic programs as well as potential career opportunities in a variety of fields. RMC is proud to offer a patch in higher education to this troop.
