Reaching Girls in Underserved Areas
Through GSCCC's Community Troop program, girls who may not have easy access to Girl Scouts otherwise, are given opportunities to grow within the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. Community Troops are led by trained Girl Scout staff members, called Community Troop Specialist who guide girls through activities in various schools, churches and community centers, as well as virtually. Girls take part in engaging, challenging, and fun activities like earning badges, traveling, selling cookies, exploring science, getting outdoors, and doing community service projects - all part of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience.
The program serves girls in K-12 grades. Approximately 2,000 girls participate annually! All girls in the program comer from under-served areas in our Council.

The Girl Scouts Community Troops program is made possible with the support of our partners and funders.
