Girl Scout Outreach

Girl Scout Outreach Experiences

These programs, delivered in schools and community centers, give our elementary school-aged girls a foundational Girl Scout experience. Girls are inspired to build new skills and learn to live by the Girl Scout Promise and Law. Each year, the council provides a variety of activities and curricula that allow younger girls to explore topics such as safety, leadership, health and fitness, personal hygiene, self-esteem, multiculturalism, science and the arts. Girl Scout staff members perform the role of troop leaders and meet with girls during or after school. Together, they complete activities and requirements for badges and journeys developed specifically to meet the girls’ needs and interests.
