Girl Scouts Beyond Bars
Community Outreach Programs
As part of our mission, we aim to empower every girl—girls of every race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, ability, gender identity, religion, or geographic location—to make the world a better place.
To serve the needs of the diverse girls and families in western Washington, we offer various opportunities to take part in Girl Scouts through our staff-led programs. By working to eliminate barriers to participation, we’re striving to ensure that Girl Scouts is for every girl.
With Girl Scouts Beyond Bars, daughters of incarcerated parents develop stronger relationships, build self-esteem and expand their life skills. This program also includes monthly meetings planned by moms and dads at Washington State Corrections Center facilities. Watch a video from King-5 News about the Beyond Bars Program.
Girl Scouts School Day
Girls in low-income schools can face language or transportation barriers to participating in Girl Scouts. This program—led by trained Girl Scout staff and planned in partnership with teachers and administrators—operates during the school day and includes Girl Scout curriculum on a range of subjects like math, science, leadership and life skills.
Girl Scouts Her Vision Her Voice
Within public housing communities and schools, Girl Scout staff partner with local community members to build and deliver curriculum that focuses on leadership, career and college readiness, and community service.
