Welcome

Welcome! We are excited to invite you and your girl to try out Girl Scouts, make new friends, and boost her social skills, self-confidence, and practice using technology in a safe environment. Whether your girl is entering kindergarten, or she’s already in school, it’s a great time to get started!

Make New Friends series: Entering Kindergarten

Starting kindergarten is a rite of passage for children and their families, but many of the usual ways teachers and caregivers prepare their kids for kindergarten have been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, leaving families worried that their kids might not be ready to successfully adapt to and thrive in the classroom.  That’s why we’re offering a free, virtual kindergarten readiness program.  Sign up for the “Make New Friends” 4-part virtual event series to help them prepare to start kindergarten with confidence! Sign up at www.girlscouts.org/ready.

Knowing social and emotional learning and development are some of the strongest predictors of academic success and healthy relationships, Girl Scouts has designed fun activities to fill this critical need.

In this four-part event series, girls will practice interacting with other girls, explore emotions and persistence, practice reasoning and problem-solving skills, and more.  After each session, you’ll receive additional information and activities to continue practicing the skills at home.

Daisy Launch series: Entering K, 1st grades

More information to come. Check back often.

Princess Story Time session: Entering K, 1st grades

Using Zoom, we’ll give you an overview of Girl Scouts, our programs, costs and financial assistance, and how you and your girl can spend quality time together as members of a troop or as an independent Juliette Girl Scout member.

In this session, our very own princess will read a story about being honest and fair (part of the Girl Scout Law) and then she’ll engage the girls in some virtual Q & A. Your girl will receive an electronic certificate as proof that she completed the requirements for her first Daisy petal, plus she’ll be able to show her certificate at the council shop to receive a free Daisy Launch fun patch!

GSNEO Virtual Troop Meetings: PreK - 12th grade

Whether your girl is meeting virtually with her own troop or not, we welcome her to join a GSNEO virtual troop, where she’ll have an opportunity to interact with even more girls and volunteers!

GSNEO has launched public Facebook groups for each Girl Scout program age-level, with two separate groups for Daisies, Year 1 (pre-K through 1st grade) and Year 2. These virtual troops were created to engage Girl Scouts in fun, safe, and meaningful ways. The groups, open to members and non-members, are meant to supplement any activities that your girl may already be doing from home or with her own troop virtually. Council trainers, troop and service unit volunteers, and others are posting content at their convenience, and we are so thankful! As an added value, we’re offering member-exclusive opportunities that are promoted in these Facebook groups and hosted using Zoom technology.
