Local girl earns Girl Scout Gold Award

Victoria I. Van De Voorde has earned the Girl Scout Gold Award, the highest award a can earn in Girl Scouting.

Van De Voorde noticed her church did not have enough diapers and wipes for those in need. She hosted a Mom’s Day Out on the day after girl Thanksgiving and requested donations of diapers and wipes. The moms could go shopping and Van De Voorde would care for their children.

She spent months volunteering in the nursery getting to know the children and parents, so the parents would be more comfortable leaving their children with her.

Van De Voorde says she learned a lot about being a leader the hard way, because only one child showed up for her event.

“I believe we have the ability to learn most through our failures than our successes,” Van De Voorde said.

She learned there are very important traits needed to be a leader, including communication, planning, budgeting, confidence, positive attitude and having a contingency plan.

She believes she has attained these skills through her Gold Award project.

“Adults are seeing me as a leader,” she said.

Van De Voorde attends Plainfield High School and is the daughter of Nannette Van De Voorde and Henry Van De Voorde. Her advisors for her project were Nanette Van De Voorde and Amanda Booth. Van De Voorde plans to attend college after graduation and eventually own a business.

The Girl Scout Gold Award recognizes the leadership and impact a young woman can have on her community. The Girl Scout Gold Award develops a girl’s leadership by helping her learn about herself, form a relationship with her community, and take action to make the world a better place. To earn the Girl Scout Gold Award, a girl begins by exploring her own skills and interests while learning leadership skills, such as communication, organization and planning. The Girl Scout then puts these skills to work by taking action in her community through her Girl Scout Gold Award project.
