In 1998, Kappa Delta began a national collaboration with Girl Scouts, an organization of over three million girls. With this partnership, Kappa Delta became the first and only National Panhellenic Conference group to adopt the Girl Scouts as a national philanthropy.
Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place. The same could be said for Kappa Delta as it relates to young women. With common values and a commitment to leadership development, Kappa Delta and Girl Scouts are sisters at heart.
Girl Scouts provides Kappa Delta members opportunities for face-to-face volunteering. Each year, Kappa Deltas across the country devote over 125,000 hours to working with Girl Scouts in their communities. Popular KD Girl Scout events are self-esteem workshops, campus tours, International Girls Day celebrations and anti-bullying workshops.
Kappa Delta collegiate volunteers get to see firsthand the difference they make in girls’ lives while learning important leadership skills in the process.
Kappa Delta Eta Theta chapter at Villanova University fundraises for and partners with the Pennsylvania chapter of Prevent Child Abuse America (PCAA), the local organization Mission kids, a child advocacy center, and Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania for multiple events throughout the year. At our annual Shamrock event our chapter raised over 9,700 dollars with 20% of this total being donated to PCCA and Mission Kids receiving the remainder. Various Girl Scout troops from the area come to at least 6 events hosted by the Kappa Deltas included a campus favorite, cookie sales!! During the other events the Kappa Deltas teach the Girl Scouts about women’s empowerment through various fun interactive activities.
