Program areas at Girl Scouts of California's Central Coast

Programs: under the Girl scout leadership experience, Girl Scouts discover, connect and take action through girl-led, cooperative, learn by doing experiences. Programs include arts and culture; business and financial literacy; environment and outdoor adventure; science, technology, engineering and mathematics (stem); and wellness and healthy living. Girls develop leadership skills as they discover themselves while exploring their interests, and connect with others to take positive action in their communities. Leadership excellence is reflected in the prestigious Girl scout gold, silver and bronze awards achieved, as well as the significant way they give back to their community through service projects. Girls develop important business and financial literacy skills through the girls scout cookie and fall product sales, building self-confidence while learning business and marketing skills, goal-setting, decision-making, money management, customer service and business ethics. These, and other financial education programs, help girls gain the self-confidence to ultimately take control of their own financial future. Girl Scouts develop skills in stem, through programs such as forever green - a wildlife and conservation program. Girl Scouts offers innovative programs to improve a Girl's self-esteem and personal self-image, such as be a friend first bullying prevention program, and physical fitness activities such as brownilympics and Girl scout soccer. These and other programs develop our female leaders of tomorrow. Due to covid 19, many programs were offered and taught online via zoom.
Volunteer development: with 4,280 adult volunteers to deliver Girl scout programs to our Girl membership, volunteer development is critical to our success in meeting our mission. Our volunteer group includes college students, retirees, professional men and women, parents, and Girl scout alumnae. These volunteers go through training in order to coach and teach girls and other volunteers at the troop, service unit, or council level. Training is offered in person or via webinar, on topics including an introduction to Girl scouting, troop leader instruction, outdoor troop camping, outdoor skills, and cookie program. Additionally, training is available for service unit managers, learning facilitators, and program aides. In addition to training, volunteer development includes recruiting, interviewing, and performing and monitoring background checks, and recognizing achievement of volunteers.
Membership: increasing Girl and volunteer membership is a top priority of our organization. Gsccc currently serves over 10,000 girls and 4,280 adult members in six counties - ventura, santa barbara, san luis obispo, san benito, monterey, and santa cruz - Girl membership remains essentially unchanged. The council is focused on ensuring the membership we serve is reflective of the demographics in our council region. Because of the large percentage of latinas in our eligible membership population, our strategy to reach this underserved demographic is by offering programs in public housing areas, through after-school programs, through soccer leagues, and at our alisal program center in salinas, ca. We reached over 1,600 underserved girls through these programs. In addition, we provide financial assistance to 2,100 low-income girls to help offset costs for program activities, uniforms, membership or camping fees allowing these girls to participate in age-appropriate, enriching experiences for them to develop life-skills, self-esteem and confidence.
