Event Details
AFHK's Get in the Action Volunteer Center gives people an opportunity to get involved in their own communities, creating the kinds of healthy changes in schools that make it possible for kids to be physically active and to eat nutritious food every day. From the cafeteria to the playground, our volunteers are rolling up their sleeves, pulling out their paint brushes and tools to build or renovate school facilities so kids have healthy school environments.

Wednesday, December 3, 2014
11:30 AM - 12:00 PM ET

During the webinar, we will walk you through the easy process of using AFHK's Get In The Action Volunteer Center, share the free resources to help you your wellness programs, and answer any questions you may have about recruiting volunteers for your school wellness events. At the end of the webinar, you will be ready to take full advantage of AFHK's Get In The Action Center! You can be the wellness champion your school needs to make a healthy difference in the lives of your students!

ANNIKA Invitational- USA »February 13th, 2015 - February 16th, 2015

The ANNIKA Invitational USA is a 54-hole, stroke-play event featuring 72 of the top U.S. and international junior girls (age 12-18). The tournament is held annually in Orlando, Florida on the Watson

Course at Reunion Resort.
The ANNIKA Foundation partnered with the American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) in 2009 to create an invitational golf tournament for the top female U.S. and international junior golfers. The tournament provides the opportunity for top players to compete against world class competition. During the week, competitors are treated to a Junior-Am, golf clinic and education seminars conducted by Annika and her team on media training, health and nutrition. A portion of the proceeds from the event support the AJGA’s ACE Grant Program, which provides golf opportunities to young players, regardless of financial ability.

DC Step Showcase Performing Team Registrtion »March 7th at 11am ET - March 7th at 3pm ET

DC Step Showcase Performing Team Registration

Date: March 07, 2015 11:00 AM-03:00 PM (Registration Closes at 11:59 PM ET on February 13, 2015)

Facility Location: Trinity Center For Women and Girls In Sports
Washington, DC

Program Levels: Step Show Teams can be made up of girls of all levels.

Do adults register? Yes, one adult from each team must register on behalf of their troop. Only select one adult and do not select any girls while attempting to register.

Capacity: 20 Teams (Do not register more than one adult from your team.)

The 2014 DC Step Showcase will be held on March 7, 2015 at Trinity Washington University.

Please note: All step team registrations should be made by the troop leader or another adult. This adult should register herself or himself and will be receiving email communication for the team about the DC Step Showcase. Please only register one adult per team.

Participating in the DC Step Showcase allows girls to practice their creativity and teamwork as they come up with an original step routine to perform in front of a supportive community audience. Past participants have been rewarded for their efforts by having the opportunity to perform their routines at GSCNC-supported events.

Stepping is a very particular form of dance, so teams should make sure they do their research and put together a step-based routine.

Troops will attend a mandatory rehearsal the evening before, and can arrive early on show day to take part in an activity fair where they can get their faces painted, make crafts and learn about other opportunities in Girl Scouting.

We will contact you after you register to gather more information about your team.

Best of luck to all!

The 27th Annual Project ACES »May 6th, 10:00AM ET - May 6th, 11:00AM ET


On May 6th, 2015 at 10 AM, all the children will either exercise, walk, jog, bike, dance, do aerobics, or a combination or all the above. Each school organizes its own participation assembly for the 15-45 minutes the program runs. There is no specific routine to follow, just have the children do some form of exercise at 10 AM. Feel free to be as creative as you would like. Many schools choose to invite local celebrities to the event and play music to accompany the activities. Organizers of local events can choose to get the whole school involved, or just selected classes. The majority of schools will get the entire school population outside on to a play field, put on music, and have everyone in the school have some fun by moving and exercising together.

If it rains, have a backup plan. Some schools have the student body go to the gym and do aerobics and calisthenics. Another option if it rains is to pump music over the PA system, and have the classes exercise in their classrooms. Invite the local media to cover the event. The children will love to see themselves in the newspapers or on TV. Proclamations from the Mayor's and/or Governor's office may also be read.
