“Liliana brings a unique background of experience and leadership skills to the board.

Girl Scouts of Northern Indiana-Michiana was created when Indiana Lakeland Girl Scout Council, Girl Scouts of Limberlost Council, Girl Scouts of Singing Sands Council and Girl Scouts of Tribal Trails Council united recently.
“Our merger is further strengthening the organization for girls and volunteers in the 21st century and allowing us to remain laser-focused on Girl Scouts’ core strength of leadership development,” says Sherri Weidman, CEO, Girl Scouts of Northern Indiana-Michiana. “With the expertise and guidance of our valued board members, we are enhancing the leadership experience through expanded opportunities for girls and new programs like Journeys.”
The new Journeys are a unique sequence of meaningful experiences centered on the three keys to leadership for all girls. Each “journey” invites girls to explore a specific leadership theme appropriate to their grade level. The Journeys sequence is one component of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, which engages girls in discovering self, connecting with others, and taking action to make the world a better place.
Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. Today, as when founded in 1912, Girl Scouts helps cultivate values, social conscience, and self-esteem in young girls, enabling them to succeed as leaders today and tomorrow. Girl Scouts of Northern Indiana-Michiana administers programs for nearly 18,000 girls in 22 counties, including 20 counties across northern Indiana and two counties in southwest Michigan.
