Diversity and Inclusion

The Girl Scouts of the USA and the Girl Scouts of Greater New York support pluralism and inclusion. We are an inclusive organization and accept all girls in grades Kindergarten through 12 as members. 

The Girl Scout organization stands firm in valuing diversity and does not discriminate on the basis of age, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, national origin, or physical or developmental disability.

The Girl Scouts of Greater New York works in one of the most diverse cities in the world, and thus, we value and embrace reflecting this diversity in every aspect of our work.

Our Council seeks to enhance society and to prepare our girl members to make the world a better place by ensuring they learn not only about themselves, but also about acceptance, tolerance, and appreciation of other human beings.
