Ms. Joy Wheeler

Term:

Since 2013

Profile:

Joy Wheeler is an incredible professional with vast experience in for profit and non-profit leadership. She recently completed a nine month Interim CEO role at Marillac Center. She has an extensive healthcare leadership background and serves on many boards making her well connected in our council's jurisdiction.

Leadership Statement:

One girl makes a difference; girls together are changing the world. It is with this in mind that Girl Scouts provides a place for girls to build their leadership skills. Our Girl Scouts provide thousands of hours supporting their communities from organizing collection drives for local food pantries to making sure troops overseas have a taste of home with special care packages. Girl Scouts making a difference today and into the future is the core of our mission.Girl Scout alumnae are the proof of the impact Girl Scouts have on girls. Eighty percent of women business owners were Girl Scouts, sixty-nine percent of female U.S. senators were Girl Scouts and virtually every female astronaut who has flown in space was a Girl Scout. America's most accomplished women in public service, business, science, education, the arts, and community life are Girl Scout alumnae.Through Girl Scouts, girls develop their leadership potential by participating in activities that enable them to discover their values, skills, and the world around them; connect with others in a multicultural environment; and take action to make a difference in the world. Girls can participate individually or in a troop setting through diverse program opportunities including camping (day, troop and resident), challenge (archery, ziplining and rappelling), equestrian, STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), and other skill-building activities.A Girl Scout's journey is made possible with support from committed parents, adult volunteers, and community donors. Thank you for your past support. We hope you will join us as we embark on the next 100 years of Girl Scouting.

Program Description:

Since its founding in 1912, the development of girl leadership has been at the heart of Girl Scouts. Upon its 100thanniversary in 2012, Girl Scouts USA renewed the commitment to leadership development and created a new model— the Girl Scout Leadership Experience—that provides the framework for all Girl Scout activities and experiences. This new model comes as the first major overhaul of the Girl Scout program since 1956, and redefines Girl Scouts with the single focus of leadership development. The Girl Scout Leadership Experience is a streamlined and simplified, outcomes-based national Girl Scout program with a strategic set of core program materials. The program engages girls in three key areas of leadership: discovering themselves, connecting with others, and taking action to make the world a better place, and provides skill-building activities that give girls the knowledge and confidence they need to live successful lives.

Program Long-Term Success:

In addition to the three keys to leadership, Girl Scout activities are designed to encourage cooperative learning, learning by doing, and be girl-led, whenever possible. Achievement of the fifteen short- and intermediate-term outcomes leads to attaining the long-term outcome and Girl Scout mission: "Girls lead with courage, confidence and character to make the world a better place."

Program Short-Term Success:

The Girl Scout Leadership Experience identifies three keys to leadership. Each of these three keys has five expected outcomes measured by age appropriate indicators to determine if the outcomes are being met. Discover: Girls understand themselves and their values and learn to use their knowledge and skills. Girls develop a strong sense of selfGirls develop positive valuesGirls gain practical life skillsGirls seek challenges in the worldGirls develop critical thinkin Connect: Girls care about and connect with others. Girls develop healthy relationshipsGirls promote cooperation and team buildingGirls can resolve conflictsGirls advance diversity in a multicultural worldGirls feel connected to their communities, locally and globally Take Action: Girls act to make the world a better place. Girls can identify community needsGirls are resourceful problem solversGirls advocate for themselves and others, locally and globallyGirls educate and inspire others to actGirls feel empowered to make a difference in the world

Program Success Monitored by:

In the spring of each year, Girl Scouts in NE Kansas & NW Missouri council conducts theGirl's Voicessurvey to measure the fifteen Discover, Connect, and Take Action outcomes above. The survey is anonymous and includes a random sample of girls ages 5 to 17 from throughout the council's forty-seven county jurisdiction. Rather than aiming to a single experience yielding a particular outcome, the surveys are designed to measure repeated exposure to activities that are tied to specific outcomes over a period of time through Girl Scouting. Every four years, our national organization, GSUSA, conducts a performance assessment with each Girl Scout council to determine if the council is meeting criteria and standards for an effective Girl Scout council.

Program Success Examples:

The council currently focuses on three of the outcomes above: Discover: Girls develop a strong sense of self. Connect: Girls develop healthy relationships. Take Action: Girls feel empowered to make a difference in the world. 2012 Girl's Voices survey results show: 91% of all girls surveyed answered "Always" or "Most of the Time" to questions related to developing a strong sense of self (Discover). 79% of all girls surveyed answered "Always" or "Most of the Time" to questions related to developing healthy relationships (Connect). 86% of all girls surveyed answered "Always" or "Most of the Time" to questions related to feeling empowered to make a difference in the world (Take Action).

Program Description:

The Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) program helps girls discover their potential, develop critical thinking skills, see STEM areas as accessible options for career pathways, and discover their potential through hands-on, inquiry-based learning on a wide variety of STEM topics such as aerospace, digital photography, forensic science, and exploring wetlands. The program integrates the leadership development outcomes of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, engaging girls in three key areas of leadership - girls discover themselves; connect with others; and take action to make the world a better place. In addition, all learning in STEM programs uses the Girl Scout processes, which ensures that activities are girl-led, learning is cooperative, and that girls learn by doing. The STEM programs offer community partnerships, volunteer-led programs, and core program materials such as the Girl Scout journey, It's Your Planet—Love It!, which is environmentally focused and has activities for all ages, lasting for ten to twelve troop meetings.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit

Accomplishments in 2012-2013 1. In September 2012, our council began strategic learning, a process for creating and implementing breakthrough strategies that will assess community needs and guide work into the future. Strategic learning drives continuous adaption through four linked steps: learn, focus, align and execute. In the Spring of 2013, a new Strategic Vision was developed for the council with the following winning proposition: ""Girl Scouts will engage and support adults who empower girls to invent their dreams."" 2. Our council continues to increase our focus on STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) to provide more girl programming opportunities to encourage girls toward future careers in this expanding field. New STEM programs were developed this year including SPARK events. These events for girls are hosted by area businesses and nonprofits giving girls an introduction to a professional field, and an opportunity to learn by doing an engaging activity similar to what the professionals do on a regular basis. 3. As a result of Strategic Learning, our Council has determined that staff restructuring will help us better support our volunteers that support girls in the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. This process is underway and will help to decentralize services so that volunteers in all 47 counties receive the support they need to be engaged to empower girls to invent their dreams. Focus Areas for 2013-2014 As a result of Strategic Learning in 2012-2013, four key priorities were established which will continue to be the key priorities for the 2013-2014 year. The four priorities, listed below, support our winning proposition, ""Girl Scouts will engage and support adults who empower girls to invent their dreams."" Pathways: Girls are engaged and retained through outstanding delivery of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience via the troop pathway (grades K-5) and development of series pathways (grades 4-5). Human Resources: Attract, recruit, develop and retain adults who can deliver on our winning proposition. Funding: Diverse revenue streams are identified and developed to meet funding needs, and underwrite innovation and growth. Engagement: Build strong relationship with volunteers, donors and community leaders too advance Girl Scouting.
