It takes more than just a big idea to lead. It takes courage, confidence, and character to plan a project with members of a community and address a real need. Girl Scouts do just that every day while learning to become caring, selfless, and effective leaders.
Maria is a young, humanitarian leader and local Girl Scout alum. For her Gold Award Take Action, Maria identified a playground in her neighborhood that needed updates to better serve children with autism and physical disabilities. She worked for three years with local government and the Autism Society of Pittsburgh to improve the park's safety and accessibility and to install musical and tactile play panels. She wanted to ensure that every child visiting the park felt welcome and had fun!
