She now is a contributing correspondent to NBC's Today Show and tells stories about inspiring people in the United States.

Bush is the CEO and co-founder of the nonprofit Global Health Corps, which places young people in health fields to serve in communities around the world that don't have access to quality medical care. She has traveled extensively in Africa and her organization serves overseas and in the United States. She also is a member of UNICEF's Next Generation Steering Committee, among other nonprofit boards.

At the luncheon, the two applauded the Girl Scouts' emphasis on training leaders for a life of service. Bush noted that of 11 Global Health Corps employees, 10 are women, and seven of them once served as Girl Scouts.

“No matter where you are in life, your talents can make a difference,” Bush told the crowd.
