SERVING ALL GIRLS
Our focus is inclusion. We bring the Girl Scout experience to underserved communities in our council area.
In Your Community
Girl Scouts is bringing opportunities to all girls and making it easy for them to participate. Girl Scouting looks and feels like real life, building courage, confidence and character in girls who can live and work in harmony.
Our FaB Factor program serves girls ages 5-18 residing in urban neighborhoods where resources for youth development are limited. The FaB Factor program encourages girls to discover their inner fabulousness. Over the course of the school year, the program focuses on four modules, Financial Literacy (Finance and Banking), Health and Fitness (Fit and Beautiful), Leadership (Faraohs and Beacons), and the STEM disciplines (Fractions, Fixtures and Bytes, Beakers).
Including All Girls
"On the GSUSA Leading the Way destination, I learned that everyone contributes to the success of the trip. It doesn't matter who has a disability and who doesn't--anyone could be the best at reading a compass, making dinner, or telling jokes around the fire. Everyone contributes their talents and everyone has a great time."
With community partners, we offer a variety of skill- and character-building opportunities to girls. Every program includes:
- An induction ceremony, at which girls receive membership pins
- Opportunity to sell cookies, to fund their activities
- Field trips
- Participation in larger-scale events for girls
College-age Girl Scouts
College-age Girl Scouts volunteer their skills and talents in program activities run directly with girls and teens, through service at school or in the Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts community.
