Girl Scouts Give Back:
Letter-Writing Service Project

The idea is simple: girls write letters to people in nursing homes, senior residences, and assisted living facilities, including the dedicated staff and caregivers. This long-distance hug is a way to share your good thoughts with these vulnerable and loved community members.

Learn how it works here.

Virtual Girl Scout Troops

The Girl Scouts of Greater New York has launched brand new city-wide Virtual Girl Scout troops—join today!

If you are a registered Girl Scout and your troop is not currently meeting, please follow these instructions to join a virtual troop.

This initiative is looking to engage current registered girls and brand-new girls in meaningful ways. During our Virtual Troop Meetings, we will continue to deliver the Girl Scout traditions such as the Promise and Law and the girls will have an opportunity to engage in exciting adventures, work on badges and participate in Virtual Camp.

Troops will be filled on a first-come-first-served basis. Based on volunteer capacity, we hope to have more Virtual Troop opportunities starting in mid-July. Girls that miss this first round of Virtual Troops and are excited to register as a Girl Scout, can join as a Juliette!

Know of a girl or leader that would like to join a virtual troop experience? Join a Virtual Girl Scout Troop today!

Girl Scout Summer 2.0

For Summer 2020, the Girl Scouts of Greater New York is holding a virtual camp program that is engaging, interactive, and beneficial for girls everywhere!

Girl Scout Summer 2.0 is a live interactive experience for all girls. Groups will meet two times per day (Monday – Thursday) in small groups according to Girl Scout level. There will also be optional live sessions daily that anyone can join in on as well as supplemental videos and activities that can be completed offline.

The weekly themes include:

  • Interstellar Explorers, July 13-16 (Daisy-Cadette)
  • Center Stage, July 20-23 (Daisy-Cadette)
  • Cybersecurity Academy, July 27-30 (Cadette-Ambassador)
  • Summer Safari, August 3-6 (Daisy-Cadette)

Adult Learning

Stay up-to-date with our virtual training and webinars for current Girl Scout volunteers and troop leaders, including our Growing Together Through COVID-19 series, which was established shortly before the Shelter-in-Place order was enacted in New York City.

The series of webinars seeks to provide meaningful, topical, and accessible support to adults living in New York City. Understanding the variety of human experience, Growing Together Through COVID-19 makes efforts to be inclusive of all adults: single, partnered, with or without children, living alone, with family or with roommates.

Virtual Program Content Submission

We invite volunteers and others in our network to create fun and interactive recorded webinars/videos that are no longer than 45 minutes on a topic that can help girls or GSGNY volunteers/troop leaders attain special skills or knowledge.

The content can be geared towards any of our Girl Scouting Levels (K-12) or adults, and can be connected to the Girl Scouting National Portfolio – or not! Since we are a 'G.I.R.L.-led' organization, we highly encourage and invite girls to participate in developing their own content too.

Please review our Video and Content Guidelines, and when you are ready, submit your content to us!
