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.

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.
