When people think of Girl Scouting, they often think about a troop of girls—generally from the same peer group or school—led by a volunteer-parent, and quite possibly supported by several other helpful parents at weekly meetings in someone’s home. However, for more than 3,000 Nebraska Girl Scouts, there is a different story. These girls, mostly from under-served parts of our cities and towns, are supported in their Girl Scout activities by our Community Outreach program. Through this program, we are able to bring the Girl Scout Leadership Experience
to girls at more than 70 sites including community and education centers, schools, boys and girls clubs, group homes, detention centers, YWCAs—throughout Nebraska.
Without the support of grant funding, public and private donations and volunteers, we would not have the resources necessary to bring this valuable leadership experience to girls whose communities are defined by social economic indicators as under-served. These girls live in urban and lower income areas of our cities and lack the means and volunteer engagement to support the structure of Girl Scout meetings, field trips and activities…including the Cookie Program and artVenture.
We believe that every girl should have access to the life-changing benefits of Girl Scouts!
