As our region’s leading and largest girl-focused nonprofit, Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles supports nearly 43,000 girls to thrive in partnership with more than 24,000 adult members and volunteers in Los Angeles County and parts of Kern, San Bernardino, and Ventura counties.
Our mission is to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. We prepare girls for a lifetime of leadership by providing access to pivotal experiences, skills, and connections, while improving their communities.
In 2017, we increased our impact by growing our membership in underrepresented communities by 19 percent, serving 13,200 girls in these areas. Our time-tested, research-backed programs empower girls to seek challenges, develop their confidence, and build healthy relationships.
