Program areas at GSGNY

Girl Scout development: over 11,100 girls and just over 3,000 adult members participated in the Girl Scout leadership experience through a variety of pathways such as troop meetings, long-term Council sponsored programs, weekend camp, one-day events, series, travel, and virtual programming. The Council delivered programming in four focal areas: stem (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), business and entreprenuership, outdoor education and adventure, and leadership. Over 5,700 Girl scouts managed their own Girl Scout cookie businesses, selling over 1.47 million boxes of cookies. We served 6,500 girls in the Council's science, technology, engineering, and math (stem) experiences in fy2022. This included cybersecurity and robotics badge programs, robotics teams, workplace visits, and special events. The Council delivered in-person and virtual environmental and camp experiences for 1,500 Girl scouts in fy2022, including day and weekend experiences. 52 girls earned the Girl Scout gold award, 108 girls earned their silver award and 69 girls earned their bronze award. These are the highest recognitions that girls can earn in Girl scouting, earned by completing projects that improve their communities in sustainable ways. Additionally, 21 eligible Girl scouts at the Council received college scholarships. We served 1,100 girls through our 2021-2022 Girl Scout leadership institute through a remote model. Girl scouts in the leadership institute created capstone projects, engaged in age-specific academic transition workshops, joined peer-led committees and attended workplace visits. The Council continued expansion of the troop 6000 program to provide Girl scouting in homeless shelters to over 320 members across 18 shelter sites. They participated in Girl Scout world thinking day in february, sold cookies, and participated in troop activities where they earned badges through weekly meetings. The Council continued to support more than 40 online courses and hundreds of lessons for this hybrid learning model. These were speficically created to meet Girl scouts needs during the pandemic and continuted to support them throughout the transition back to in -person/hybrid experiences and meet accessibility needs.
Camp operations: the Council's camp kaufmann in dutchess county, ny provides outdoor educational programs. Great steps were made in securing funding to build a New dining hall and classroom structure titled "Girl hq". This building will propel the gsgny strategic plan forward and provide more dynamic opportunities for Girl scouts and leaders to access the outdoor leadership experience. Demolition began in august 2022 and construction shortly thereafter. A capital campaign is ongoing to assist with the funding of the building.
Volunteer opportunities: the Girl Scout program advances the development of 15 key outcomes for girls related to discovering, connecting, and taking action in their community. Through the Council's volunteer corps of over 3,000 adults. They were able to serve Girl scouts in every zip code across the five boroughs of nyc. Volunteers participated in training in all program pillar areas, as well as dei and mental health, to enhance their knowledge of the Girl Scout program and ability to provide girls with advocacy, stem, business, and outdoor experiences. This year, volunteers were able to transition back to more in-person events and meetings supported by the gsgny staff-including the biannual leaders retreat at camp that provides over 45 workshops over the course of a weekend.
