We serve more than 14,531 girls throughout New Hampshire and Vermont. With the guidance of more than 5,500 dedicated and trained volunteers, girls discover the fun, friendship, and power of girls together. Through hundreds of programs offered each year, girls develop their leadership potential through activities that enable them to discover their values, skills and the world; connect with others in a multicultural environment; and take action to make a difference in the world.
The Girl Scout Mission Statement
"Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place."
Is one of 112 councils chartered by Girl Scouts of the USA, the world’s leading organization dedicated solely to girls, where, in an accepting and nurturing environment, girls build character and skills for success. In partnership with caring adults, girls develop qualities to serve them all their lives: strong values, social conscience, and conviction about their potential and self-worth.
Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains is recognized throughout New Hampshire and Vermont as a leading expert on girls. Our innovative leadership programs help girls discover, connect and take action as they develop strong values, a social conscience, and a deep sense of self and their potential.
Membership is open to all girls 5-17 who subscribe to the Girl Scout Promise and Law. We are part of a worldwide family of 10 million girls and adults in 145 countries. Girl Scouting was founded in 1912 by Juliette Gordon Low.
Adult members volunteer as troop leaders, community administrators, organizers, public relations coordinators, adult learning facilitators, board members, and specialists in child development, adult and outdoor education, and administration.
Our annual budget of just over $5 million is supported by gifts from individuals and corporations, grants from foundations, investements, program fees, and the annual Girl Scout Cookie sale.
