Accounting Manager

GSGNY Background

For over a century, Girl Scouts has been instilling generations of girls with the skills and knowledge to become young women of courage, confidence, and character, to speak out and be leaders. Today, Girl Scouts of Greater New York (GSGNY) is delivering its message of empowerment and engaging more than 25,000 girls of every race, background, and religion. GSGNY’s vision is a New York City in which every girl feels empowered to lead in her community, the workplace, and the world. GSGNY has become a hub for innovation within the broader Girl Scouts movement, presenting new ways to engage and inspire the next generation of young leaders.

Recent investments and initiatives include:

  • The Leadership Institute provides middle and high school-aged girls with 21st-century leadership skills and subject-specific knowledge and experiences that will help girls reshape their views on leadership and about their own potential to transform into powerful agents of change while equipping them to succeed in school and their future careers.
  • Troop 6000 is the first Girl Scout program specially designed to serve the thousands of girls currently living in the New York City homeless shelter system.
  • Cybersecurity Programs at Girl Scouts were designed to serve the evolving needs of New York City’s girls and New York City’s workforce. With the goal of encouraging girls to consider careers that require STEM skills, this program ensures girls have the tools and knowledge they need to safely navigate our increasingly tech-driven world.
  • Anti-Racist and Anti-Bias Training: We teach girls to lead by example, and to that end, we are committed to doing the work necessary to become an anti-racist organization. We are working to partner with experts in the areas of race, inclusion, and equity to conduct a series of trainings for both staff and volunteers.
  • Camp Kaufmann: The camp experience is an essential part of Girl Scouting –and as the only Girl Scout council in the nation in which 100% of the girls we serve are growing up in an urban environment, we prioritize offering high-quality outdoor education opportunities to New York City girls. We recently upgraded and enhanced facilities at our 425-acre Camp Kaufmann in Dutchess County, including the construction of a new swimming pool.

Guided by an ambitious strategic plan and its dynamic CEO, Meridith Maskara, Girl Scouts of Greater New York aims to expand to reach more girls while serving as an innovating force within the national Girl Scout movement.
