Girls Rock the Capitol offers legislative internships

CONCORD – Girls who are high school age who have an interest in government service and advocacy are invited to apply for Girls Rock the Capitol, a legislative internship led by the Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains.

No Girl Scout experience is needed.

The program links girls to female legislators who act as mentors. Girls learn about and work on issues affecting the future of New Hampshire from inside the Statehouse.

Girls become critical thinkers, work as a team to advocate for themselves and others, prepare for leadership roles in their schools and communities, and have a rich understanding of the state’s democratic process.

Applications are due Friday, Oct. 31. To apply, contact Nicole Nolan at 1-888-474-9686, ext. 4142, or nnolan@girlscoutsgwm.org.
