Since 1913, the Girl Scouts of Greater New York has served more than
five million girls in New York City, preparing them to lead with
courage, confidence and character, to make the world a better place.
Today, we serve more than 31,000 girls ages 5 to 18 in every zip code
of New York City’s five boroughs. 70% of the girls we serve come from
low-to-moderate income homes; their participation is heavily
subsidized by the Council. Funds raised at the Gala help us meet the
rising demand for our leadership programs, and prepare today’s girls
to become tomorrow’s leaders.
