Who Can Join GAB?
GAB is offered at the service unit and Council levels. Girls must be ages 11-17 to participate.                                   

Service Unit Girl Advisory Board
Girl Scout Council of Colonial Coast encourages each service unit to have a Girl Advisory Board (GAB) consisting of girls ages 11-17.  Having a Girl Advisory Board allows your service unit to hold new older girl activities as well the opportunity to have older girls help plan service unit events.

Each service unit is invited to send two names of girl representatives ages 14- 17 to join the Council GAB. If your service unit does not have a GAB, Council encourages you to send two names of girl representatives to council for the Council GAB. Please contact your service unit for information on the service unit GAB.

Council Girl Advisory Board
Girls will have the opportunity to provide ideas about and plan council events and programs. Council GAB will consist of two girl representatives from each service unit ages 14-17. Girls can serve up to four years on the Council Girl Advisory Board.

Council Girl Advisory Board Meetings
Start getting ready to gear up for next year! The Girl Advisory Board will meet monthly to discuss and plan council activities.

Want To Be A GAB Advisor?
Calling all GAB advisors! Do you like working with older girls ages 11-17 and consider yourself teen savvy? Are you between the ages of 18-29? GAB advisors are adults between the ages of 18-29 who want to work with Cadette, Senior and Ambassador Girl Scouts. Advisors will provide support and guidance to GAB members during the year. Advisors are needed for the service unit and council level.
