The Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana offer a unique opportunity to young women in the Chicago area. It’s called Camp CEO – a fun, five-day overnight camp that brings together 25 teen girls and 25 of our area’s most accomplished women executives for a highly-rewarding, unique and often surprising opportunity to learn what it’s really like to be an executive woman in today’s world.
For part of the time, each young woman is matched, one-on-one, with a business woman. Together, they experience unique sessions designed to build leadership and professional skills. These young women learn how the pros network, to plan for theirr financial future and to focus on their strengths during an interview for a job or college. In this video, Maria Wynne, CEO of The Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana, talks about the impact of the Camp CEO program, which takes place every summer in June.
