Girl Scouts
This organization is the world's preeminent organization dedicated solely to girls-all girls-where, in an accepting and nurturing environment, girls build character and skills for success in the real world.

LiveSTRONG Challenge
This program encourages students to stay healthy by exercising. During the challenge participants are asked to exercise daily. They can choose any form of exercise that is equal to walking one mile. An examples of this is mowing your yard. Participants do this in honor of cancer survivors. (livestrong.gcsu@gmail.com)

Relay for Life

Special Olympics
This program, through year-round sports training and competition, empowers individuals with intellectual disabilities in more than 180 countries. Special Olympics often is the only place where they have an opportunity to participate in their communities and develop belief in themselves. Transforming the athlete, Special Olympics sports are a gateway to empowerment, competence, acceptance and joy. But we also transform their communities. When people see Special Olympics athletes in action, they see their humanity, their joy in competition, their pride and their potential, and they begin to believe in a different kind of world – a world in which everyone is respected and included.
