Introduce girls to new experiences that show them they're capable of more than they ever imagined. Whether you can give a day, a few weeks, or the whole year, it all starts with you. Be the role model she’ll always remember.

Have you heard the news? GSNI is on the move...AGAIN!  
Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois (GSNI) plans to open a new resource center at 3425 Orchard Road in Oswego. The organization has sold its current building at 200 New Bond St. in Sugar Grove and hopes to be operating out of its new location in early 2020. The new center is part of the organization’s ongoing strategy to create Girl Scout locations in the northern Illinois region—in Freeport, Lake Zurich, Rock Falls, Rockford, and South Elgin—with a modern, vibrant store, meeting space for staff, and increased visibility and convenience for families and volunteers. 

Once we finalize our upcoming new location, we will be hosting a ribbon cutting ceremony for local officials, chambers of commerce, and media shortly after our first day of business at the new locations. Grand opening celebrations will be held for all Girl Scout families to officially "open" our new location to the community.

GSNI willl be hosting our ribbon cutting and grand opening celebrations for our new Oswego location in the new year!  Check back soon for more information!

Girls at the Heart of Over the Edge

18 Dec 2019

As our volunteer Board of Directors decided whether to host Over the Edge in 2020, one thing became clear. These dedicated, caring adults wanted more GSNI Girl Scouts to have the opportunity to both experience this adventure and to raise money to support their current and potential Girl Scout sisters.
