Empowerment through skills and confidence-building remains the goal of this centuries-old all-girls group,but now there is more emphasis on helping girls excel in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics or STEM.Girl Scout leaders hope the new approach will help the group survive new challenges, like declining membership.
通过技能和信心塑造来赋权女性仍然是这个有百年历史的女子团体的目标,但是现在,他们更加强帮助女孩在科学、技术、工程和数学上取得出色成绩,这些学科又称STEM。女童军的领导人表示,希望这种新的方法能够帮助女童军对抗新的挑战,就比如女童军人员减少的挑战。
Over the past decade and a-half, the number of Girl Scouts has dropped from nearly 3 million girls to about 1.76 million.There are fewer adult volunteers, too.Megan Ferland who leads the Girl Scouts of Western Washington says Scouts are engaged in new activities like robotics and technology.I do believe that STEM for girls is critically important,because STEM careers are projected to be vitally important in over the next several decades,and there are not enough women in those careers and projected to not be in in those careers.
在过去的十五年中,女童军的数量从近300万人削减到约176万。成年志愿者的数量也在下降。领导西华盛顿女童军的Megan Ferland认为,童军正参与新的活动,比如机器人和科技。我确实认为STEM 这样的学科对于女孩来说十分重要,因为这类工作预计在未来几十年会变得至关重要,而且没有多少女孩从事这些职业,也没有多少女孩计划从事这些工作。
The Boy Scouts started admitting girls into its programs last year, but the Girl Scouts will not follow suit.Remaining all-girls club is just fun with male in trend.I think that Girl Scouts really gives a unique experience for all girls because it’s like an all-girls environment.I think that’s what’s really important because it gives girls a chance to work with othergirls and to work with female leaders to find their own sort of empowerment.
去年,男童军开始招收女孩参加别的项目,但是女童不跟风效仿。剩下的全女子俱乐部也只是随男性的大流娱乐娱乐。我认为女童军真的给所有女孩提供了一次独特的体验,因为提供了全是女孩的环境。我认为这才是真正重要的,因为这个让女孩有机会和其他女孩一起工作,也和女性领导一起工作,以此发现她们自己的能力所在。
Mai-Linh Tran has been a Girl Scout since she was in the first grade.This year she won one of the organization of highest honors—the elite Gold Award for her work in robotics.In order to build equity, you need to start at the base, and that means with kids,so Girl Scouts is a really great opportunity because it allows kids from of all ages, like, even as like a first grader, girls are getting this opportunity to find their own power.Here in this newly opened year-round camp in Dallas-the STEM center of excellence—girls of all ages explore various programs and gain skills in STEM fields.They also engage in more traditional activities, like community service and selling cookies.
Mai-Linh Tran从一年级开始就是一名女童军。今年,她凭借自己在机器人领域的成就获得了最高组织荣誉奖之一-精英金奖。为了公平起见,你需要从基础开始,这就意味着和孩子们一起。所以,女童军真的提供了一个好机会,因为女童军让所有年龄的孩子,就甚至像一年级的孩子那样,慢慢发现自己的能力。在这个新开设的达拉斯全年营地-STEM 卓越中心——任何年龄段的孩子都能参与不同的项目,获得STEM职业技能。他们还参与更加传统的活动,比如参与社区服务、售卖曲奇。
