Girls Scouts of Northern California
Girl Scouts came to California in 1917, and almost one hundred years later, in 2007, the Girl Scouts of Northern California was incorporated, comprising five former councils, home to 50, 000 girls and 31, 000 adults across 19 counties.
We tailor our programs for the developmental, educational, emotional, and social needs of girls from grades K-12 Activities range from teaching STEM concepts, to team building, to graphic design, to outdoor cooking...the sky’s the limit. At Girl Scouts of Northern California, we continually work to provide opportunities for girls (and volunteers) to grow their strengths, passions, and talents.
As a council, we value diversity and inclusiveness; our staff and volunteers are representative of the diverse communities that we serve. Girl Scouts does not discriminate on any basis, including age, race, ethnicity, religion, disability, sexual orientation, or gender identity.
