October 2019: Celebrating Growth
As the Girl Scout year closed on September 30, a wonderful thing
happened, our membership grew to more than 25,268 girl members and
12,493 adult members! It's been a tough few years with most
youth-serving organizations losing members to the myriad of ways kids
can spend their time. This is the first time in eight years that GSNEO
membership has grown and the first time in ten years the council has
exceeded its goal. First, and foremost that means more girls had the
opportunity to experience Girl Scouts and reap the benefits of our
program. That means more girls will be on a path to leadership, have a
stronger sense of self, and have STEM confidence, just to name a few
of those benefits. It also means that more families believe in our
program and with all the choices they have, they picked Girl Scouts!
Our community supporters know this is a big deal, and it makes them
feel confident in their investments of time and other resources in
GSNEO. I am so grateful to all the volunteers who made this happen –
from service teams to troop leaders, and zip-line facilitators to
program aides- you made Girl Scouts come alive in your community and
drew members like bees to honey or should I say like s’mores to
