Who are We?
"Girl Scouts of the USA believes, like so many of you, that there are thousands of former Girl Scouts who have benefited greatly from their Girl Scout experience and strongly believe in the Girl Scout Mission. There are so many other adults who support and applaud what Girl Scouting stands for and its services to girls in today's communities. Yet these people are not connected or linked with the Girl Scout organization in the United States. Building a broader based adult membership would fill this void and enhance the scope of services Girl Scout councils can offer in diverse areas of their overall jurisdiction.
Building a broader based membership would also contribute to the overall diversity of the movement,increase public recognition and understanding of Girl Scouting, and provide a continuity for graduating Senior Girl Scouts."
Frances Hasselbein, Chief Executive Officer
of Girl Scouts of the U.S.A. from 1976-1990
We are women and men of all ages from the Northern California Coast Area, and welcome anyone, no matter where you come from.
