The Girl Scouts of Greater New York (GSGNY) is New York City's largest girls-only youth and leadership development organization.
Nearly 28,000 girls representing almost every zip code participate in our programs - learning to lead with courage, confidence, and character to make their communities and the world a better place. And over 9,000 volunteers help them along their journey.
We offer a wide range of Girl Scout activities in public and private schools, public housing, and community-based organizations. And through our programs, we offer many pathways to help girls grow into leaders.
Girls and volunteers can choose their level of involvement – from a one-time opportunity to an ongoing participation in a troop.
Girl Scouting will help girls develop:
Their full potential by recognizing and building on their unique talents; Relationships with others by discovering ways to communicate, build friendships and appreciate differences; A value system by learning what is important and making sound decisions; Concern for society by cooperating with others and service to the community.
