For more than 100 years, Girl Scouting has made a difference in the lives of girls and in the neighborhoods we serve. Our mission is to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.
With approximately 54,000 members, Girl Scouts of North East Ohio is the largest, most active female voluntary service group in the region and among the largest Girl Scout Councils in the nation. Throughout Northeast Ohio, we serve girls in urban community centers, public housing, libraries, churches and schools, providing girls a safe, supportive environment and the resources they need to reach their full potential. GSNEO serve girls across income and demographic groups. Wherever girls live, whatever their circumstances, we help them learn to think for themselves and lead the way for others.
From its very beginning, Girl Scouting taught girls to become the change they want to see in the world. The Girl Scout Leadership Experience gave girls then, and now, the tools and confidence to lead – to find inside the uncertain girl, the citizen who will become a catalyst for action and change. Today, the Girl Scout Leadership Experience provides a framework and consistency so all girls have the opportunity to engage in the best leadership experience available. Through age-appropriate activities, girls discover themselves, connect with others, and take action to make the world a better place. Girl Led, Cooperative Learning, and Learning by Doing ensure the quality and promote the fun and friendship so integral to Girl Scouting.
