Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains

Selena Pettingil And Her Cousin Gianna Tonight At Their First Girl Scout Meeting Of The Year2022 Goals:

Before she’s spacewalking, using her voice for change, conquering that Grand Slam or winning Grammys, she’s a Girl Scout. Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains prepares her for a lifetime of leadership — from lobbying the city council with her troop to holding a seat in Congress; from running her own cookie business today to tackling cybersecurity tomorrow. Girl Scouts is a place where she’ll practice different skills, explore her potential, take on leadership positions — and even feel allowed to fail, dust herself off, get up and try again. We will continue to widen our reach by ensuring that the benefits of Girl Scouts are available to all through financial assistance, programs run in partnership with community organizations and after-school programs, and expanding our online programs. Girl Scouts takes her potential, combines it with robust skill-building programming, and adds caring adult mentors and strong female role models to build girls who make the world a better place.

Engagement Opportunities:

Girls are the leaders and innovators that our future world requires, and being Girl Scouts gives them the tools they need to succeed. With your help, we can continue to create and optimize an environment where girls explore freely, expand their perspectives and discover the unimaginable.

Whether in person or online, volunteers are critical to our activities, such as the Girl Scout Cookie program. They teach financial literacy and life skills. Partnership opportunities include our Young Women of Distinction celebrations and GIRL Expo. You can support Girl Scout initiatives in STEM, outdoor adventures, the Girl Scout Leadership Experience and Girl Assistance programs.

Giving Opportunities:

Our individual and corporate donors have been generous and have made a direct and positive impact on Girl Scouts across New Hampshire and Vermont. Giving opportunities include, but are not limited to: 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; Gift of Caring and Hometown Heroes programs, donating Girl Scout Cookies to front-line workers and military service members; matching gifts through employer contributions and planned giving through memorial gifts and our Juliette Gordon Low Society.

Volunteer Opportunities:

Volunteerism is at the heart of the Girl Scout experience. Volunteering for Girl Scouts can truly make a difference in the life of a girl. Volunteer opportunities include leading a troop, supporting an after-school program, opportunities to serve on our board and committees, and more. Positions are available for a variety of time commitments and skill sets. Contact us or visit “Volunteer” on our website for more information.
