Girl Scouts of Maine

Who We Are

At Girl Scouts of Maine, over 5,250 girls from across our state are discovering what’s important to them, connecting with their community, and taking action to make the world a better place. With the help of over 3,750 volunteers, we are creating adventures, learning opportunities, and future leaders.

The Girl Scout Leadership Experience offers girls in grades K-12 the opportunity to take on leadership roles and learn-by-doing in a safe, fun, and cooperative environment – inspiring them to accept challenges and overcome obstacles, now and always.

This unique leadership experience is grounded in three processes:

  • Girl-led: Girl Scouts follow their own lead and grow their skills.
  • Learning by Doing: Hands-on activities empower Girl Scouts to shape their own experience.
  • Cooperative Learning: Girl Scouts see firsthand that teamwork, respect and collaboration can fuel them through any challenge that comes their way.
  • And built on four core program pillars:
  • STEM: Girl Scouts gain confidence in STEM, becoming better problem-solvers and critical thinkers.
  • Outdoor: Outdoor adventures and activities ignite a lifelong appreciation of nature and a desire to take action as environmental stewards.
  • Life Skills: Building skills across topics like financial literacy, civic engagement, travel, the arts, and community service – inspire Girl Scouts to be skilled global citizens.
  • Entrepreneurship: Instills and nurtures an entrepreneurial mindset and fuels girls’ curiosity and confidence as they learn the essentials of innovation and running their own businesses.

2024 Goals

  • Deliver programming and support members in achieving our Girl Scout Leadership Experience Outcomes for every girl member: Strong Sense of Self, Positive Values, Challenge Seeking, Healthy Relationships, and Community Problem Solving.
  • Prioritize mental health through innovative mental wellness resources, programming, and training curated specifically to support girls and the adults who interact with them through Girl Scouts.
  • Amplify programming for older Girl Scouts including international and domestic travel, leadership opportunities, scholarships, and our Highest Awards – the Girl Scout Gold and Silver Awards.
  • Create new, and expand existing, community partnerships with local organizations, business leaders, and volunteers with a focus on workforce development and mentorship opportunities for Girl Scouts in middle and high school.
  • Ensure every girl in Maine has access to Girl Scout programming, welcoming and respecting diversity of all kinds so girls of all economic, racial/ethnic and religious backgrounds; sexual orientations; and abilities come together to grow and learn from one another’s unique experiences.
