Girl Scouts Can Now Earn A Trucking Badge

Girl Scouts Can Now Earn A Trucking Badge

The Girl Scouts are now encouraging young women to explore a career in the trucking industry by offering a “Women In Trucking” badge.

President of Women In Trucking Ellen Voie worked with the Girl Scouts to create the patch because she feels it is a good way to expose girls to “the impact of trucking on their lives, since everything they have has been transported at some point by a truck.

The Girl Scouts are offering Trucks Are For Girls events, which allows the girls to try out a truck driving simulator, to explore the interior of a truck, and to hear from female professional drivers.
