About GSNI Community Programs

GSNI is committed to offering the Girl Scout leadership program to underserved girls. The community programs at GSNI are free to participants. Community troops meet during school lunch, immediately after school, at neighborhood community centers, and boys and girls clubs. Community 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.

Community troops begin as staff led troops. Our hope is that parents will become involved and take over the leadership role of these troops. Without community 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.
