MONTPELIER -- High-school age girls with an interest in government service and advocacy are invited to apply for Girls Rock the Capitol, a legislative internship led by Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains. No Girl Scout experience is needed.

This intensive program links girls to female legislators who act as mentors, while girls learn about and work on issues affecting the future of Vermont from inside the State House.

Through GRTC girls become critical thinkers, work as a team to advocate for themselves and others, prepare for leadership roles in their schools and communities, and have a rich understanding of the Green Mountain State democratic process.

To apply, contact Nicole Nolan, toll free, at 888-474-9686, ext. 4142, or Applications are due Oct. 31. Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains serves more than 10,500 girls across New Hampshire and Vermont, thanks to 4,000 trained and dedicated volunteers. For more information, go to or call 888-474-9686.
