There's never been a better time to reconnect to Girl Scouts!
This year we are celebrating Girl Scouting’s 100th anniversary, inviting every former Girl Scout, and even women who did not have the opportunity to be Girl Scouts as girls, to be a part of our Council.

Stand up and be counted as we inspire the next generation of women leaders. There are opportunities to give your time, talent, and treasure, or simply to stay up-to-date with Girl Scouting in our region. We can’t wait to hear from you!
YOU KNOW GIRL SCOUTING WORKS – NOW THERE’S PROOF!
According to a new Girl Scout Research Institute report, Girl Scouting Works: The Alumnae Impact Study, women who were Girl Scouts as children display significantly more positive life outcomes than non-Girl Scout alumnae.
Approximately one in every two adult women (49%) in the U.S. has at some point been a member of Girl Scouts; the average length of time a girl spends in Girl Scouting is four years. There are currently an estimated 59 million Girl Scout alumnae living in the U.S.
The study, which was not identified to participants as a Girl Scout project, surveyed a sample of 3,550 women aged 18 and older, roughly half of whom were Girl Scout alumnae and half drawn from the general population. The sample was chosen to be representative of the U.S. population in terms of race/ethnicity, household income, education, marital status, and type of residence.
Compared to non-alumnae, Girl Scout alumnae display significantly more positive life outcomes on several indicators of success.
