Girl Scouting Works and Make a Difference!
» Women who were Girl Scouts as girls display higher levels of positive outcomes in
their personal and professional lives within the areas of sense of self, education,
income, civic engagement, and community service.*
» Girl Scouting contributes to academic success through the leadership skills and
experiences girls gain through cooperative learning, girl-led activities, and
learning by doing.*
Invest in Girls by Making a Gift Today
Despite the relatively low fee of $27 to join GSNNJ, the overall cost for program activities and support to GSNNJ's girl and adult members is more than $250 a year for each girl. Cookies sales, program fees and the council service fee raise $210 per girl-- that mean each year $40 per girl needs to be raised to bridge the cost gap.
How do we bridge the $40 plus gap per girl?
Through GSNNJ's Annual Family Campaign (AFC) appeal to member families to contribute to the Girl Scout mission in our area.
