ABOUT THE GIRL SCOUT GALA
Our Girl Scout Gala will celebrate our Second Century of Girl Scouting in New York City and honor leaders engaged in strengthening and building our City, embody innovation, and are strong, positive role models of leadership for our girl members.
Ever since our first troop gathered in Harlem in 1913, the impact Girl Scouting has had in New York City has been remarkable: from starting a troop for girls with disabilities in 1917; to standing at the polls as women voted for the first time; to having our own President Emerita, Mary Phipps, successfully advocate for the creation of Girl Scout Daisies (for girls as young as five); to partnering with Barnard College to launch the Girl Scout Leadership Institute. No organization of its kind has reached more girls and changed more lives for the better than we have.
Girl Scouting reaches 27,926 girls in New York City – two-thirds of whom are from low-income homes. We believe every girl in every borough should have the opportunity to be a leader in her community and society. Proceeds from the Gala will help us meet the rising demand for our programs and prepare today’s girls to become tomorrow’s leaders.
