Girl Scout Program Overview

The Jane Addams Hull-House Museum is partnering with the Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana for two programs in November 2019 and March 2020. These programs will be offered for Junior and Cadette level Girl Scouts. Participating Girl Scouts will earn a badge at the end of the day. Come and join us for an exploration of history, art, and powerful historical women all while making new friends!
