Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains

2019 Goals:

Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains (GSGWM) taps into the power of every G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ providing opportunities where girls take the lead, seek out new challenges and build important life skills. We will continue to grow our membership of over 10,000 girls, and continue to empower girls through our diverse programming in the outdoors, STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), entrepreneurship and civic action/engagement. Focusing on the future, we will continue to give girls the chance to pursue interests and develop skills through 30 new badges that focus on critical subjects such as cybersecurity, mechanical engineering, computer science, environmental advocacy, robotics and space exploration.

Fundraising Events:

There are numerous opportunities to engage with Girl Scouts throughout the year. Cookie Rallies prepare Girl Scouts for a successful Girl Scout Cookie® season with hands-on exhibits and workshops that develop life skills and teach financial literacy and entrepreneurship. The G.I.R.L. Expo is an action-packed day of skill-building challenges, performances and workshops for girls 5-18 and their families. Our Young Women of Distinction celebrates girls who have earned their Girl Scout Gold and Silver Awards. Other fundraising events include our Programs on Demand, patch development opportunities, and developing programs and activities supporting Girl Scout initiatives in STEM, outdoor adventures, the Girl Scout Leadership Experience and Girl Assistance programs.

Giving Opportunities:

We recognize the continued generosity of our individual and corporate donors, and the support of partners who directly and positively impact Girl Scouts throughout our council. Giving opportunities include, but are not limited to, our: Unleashing Her Potential Campaign, supporting the continued growth of our membership through program expansion and facility improvements; Girl Assistance Fund and Campership Assistance, providing Girl Scouting to girls regardless of their family’s economic circumstances; Operation Cookie, donating Girl Scout Cookies® to military service members (over 17,000 boxes donated in 2018); and planned giving through memorial gifts and our Juliette Gordon Low Society. Please reach out to us directly or visit our donate page on our website for more detail.

Volunteer Opportunities:

Volunteerism is at the heart of the Girl Scout experience. Our men and women Girl Scout volunteers are positive and powerful role models for the girls they serve and are themselves positively impacted by the work they do. GSGWM volunteers report life-long impacts as a direct result of their Girl Scout volunteer experiences. We recruit, train and support our volunteers, providing the resources they need to become leaders themselves, from online tools to in-person training, education and support. There are many volunteer opportunities from leading a troop, supporting an afterschool program, to spreading the word about the power of Girl Scouting. You can make a difference in the life of a girl. Contact us or visit “volunteer” on our website for more information.
