Who we serve
The program serves approximately 300 girls during the school year, offering weekly after school/evening programs and weekend activities. All girls in the program come from low-income households.
How we implement Girl Scout Community Troops
Our Girl Scout Community Troops program is led by led by volunteers and Girl Scout Council Staff through both weekly after-school meetings at community centers, parks or schools and also some weekend activities.
