SCA Interns Meet, Train at GSWPA in Pittsburgh

Student Conservation Association (SCA) interns gathered at Girl Scouts Western Pennsylvania (GSWPA) headquarters in Pittsburgh for training and to plan amazing adventures for Girl Scouts in the outdoors.

The interns—representing four Girl Scout councils—will help council staff enhance outdoor and conservation activities for girls and volunteers, organize local service opportunities for family and community members, and assist in increasing girl participation levels and volunteer confidence in the outdoors.

These internships are part of a collaboration between GSUSA and the Student Conservation Association (SCA) that is funded by a grant from the Richard King Mellon Foundation

This pilot program include five councils: GSWPA, Girl Scouts of Alaska, Girl Scouts-Arizona Cactus-Pine Council, Girl Scouts of Greater New York, and Girl Scouts of Southeastern Michigan.

While in Pittsburgh, the interns took a break from training—and the heat, since the area is enjoying temps in the high 80s—to get a cool treat from a local popsicle truck.
