About Us

Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains

Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains is one of 112 councils chartered by Girl Scouts of the USA, the world’s leading organization dedicated solely to girls. Here in New Hampshire and Vermont we serve more than 10,000 girls with the guidance of more than 3,500 dedicated and trained volunteers. We provide an accepting and nurturing environment where 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. 

What We Do

Through hundreds of programs offered each year, girls develop their leadership potential in 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. This is the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. 

How Girls Enjoy Girl Scouting

About 90% of our Girl Scouts participate through traditional troops led by volunteers. Many others participate through after-school programs lasting six to eight weeks, or through one-week school vacation activity centers. We offer day and resident camping, and other unique opportunities through which girls receive the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. When girls cannot come to us, we bring the program to them through our Virtual Programming, including online book groups and the Flat Juliette program.

Timely topics such as STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) subjects, adventure sports,  advocacy  and  political  science,  dating  violence  awareness,  and  entrepreneurship  have joined traditional program opportunities offered to girls, from leadership, outdoor skills, wildlife, the  environment,  travel,  first  aid  and  disaster preparedness  to  water  sports. The  Girl  Scout Cookie  program is the number-one financial literacy program for girls in the world where they learn  money  management,  salesmanship  and  marketing,  goal-setting,  and  teamwork.  Every activity  is girl-driven,  so  girls  learn  to  make  good  choices  and  discover  their  potential  as  a leader. Community service is a vital part of our mission to “make the world a better place.” Girl Scouts in  our  council  alone participate  in  thousands  of  hours  of  service  projects  every  year, directly benefiting their community, the state, our country and the world.
