ELIZABETH, NJ - Tropa Exploradoras, a Girl Scout group for ESL students, will be transitioning to a fully virtual format this fall.

The Girls Scout Heart of New Jersey launched the Spanish language Girl Scout program in 2018 for all girls enrolled in a K-12 ESL program. Girls who participate will get the opportunity to participate in all of the traditional Girl Scout activities in Spanish, including earning badges.

The girls will also be able to practice their English outside of the classroom in a safe space with other girls who are learning. Girls in Tropa Exploradoras will have access to all virtual programming and national events for Girl Scouts. Families who are interested can sign up for the first parents meeting on September 22 at 6 p.m. The first meeting for the girls will take place on September 29.
