When people hear “Girl Scouts,” they typically think of cookies. Many others think that young people cannot make a difference in the world. However, one young Girl Scout has proven people who think like this wrong. Like the Boy Scouts’ “Eagle Scout” status, Girl Scouts can earn their “Gold Award” through completing a service project in their community. Claire Dundee, 16, completed hers by making a basketball court for Door for Hope, a transitional apartment complex for women and children who have felt the sting of domestic violence and who otherwise be homeless. Claire raised all of the money and helped to build the court. The court allows the kids to have a place to play outside and help them escape their situation, if only for a little while.
