Over the Edge 4 Girl Scouts - Postponed Until June 5, 2021

We have decided to postpone our 2020 Over the Edge event from May 30, 2020, to June 5, 2021! Our partners at SupplyCore and Over the Edge Global fully support our decision and will continue to partner with us. This decision was not made lightly but with the full consideration of our edgers, members, and the community’s public health and safety in mind. In addition, we will not be holding our Over the Edge Family Fest. We’re excited to make Over the Edge 4 Girl Scouts an even more phenomenal urban fundraising experience in 2021!

About GSNI Outreach Program

GSNI is committed to offering the Girl Scout leadership program to underserved girls. The outreach programs at GSNI are free to participants. Outreach troops meet during school lunch, immediately after school, at neighborhood community centers, and boys and girls clubs. Outreach programming focuses on Girl Scouts enrichment activities that supplement girls’ educational experience at school and build social and emotional competence. In an accepting and nurturing environment, girls build character and skills for success in the real world.

Outreach troops begin as staff led troops. Our hope is that parents will become involved and take over the leadership role of these troops. Without outreach troops 1,600 girls would not only miss out on the Girl Scout leadership program, but on the opportunity to develop qualities that will serve them all their lives- like strong values, a social conscience, and a conviction about their own potential and self-worth.

These girls are the heart of Over the Edge 4 Girl Scouts. Join us in giving them the attention they deserve and access to Girl Scouts.
