The Girl Scouts of Rhode Island: “Shaping Girls into Extraordinary Women” is a documentary film that tells the story of 18 women who were Girl Scouts of Rhode Island during the 1930s through the 1990s. The purpose of this film is to share with others the profound impact the Girl Scouts of Rhode Island has had in modeling these women into the phenomenal individuals they are today. These women were interviewed at various venues including the Girl Scouts of Rhode Island Council Office, Camp Hoffman, and one residence. The primary research methodology used was the collection of interview tapes. In addition, the Girl Scouts of Rhode Island website and several books were used to produce this film. The results indicated that while each story was unique, many of their experiences revealed a common theme: how the Girl Scouts of Rhode Island shapes girls into extraordinary women.
