Experience a living history reenactment and see how women have made a difference in throughout naval history. Program includes dinner, breakfast, all workshops and an opportunity to stay the full day after the overnight at Battleship Cove.

Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England (GSSNE) has approximately 700 troops serving 7,700 girls ages 5 to 18, representing all of RI, 13 towns in surrounding Massachusetts, and one town in Connecticut. About a year ago GSSNE convened a Hispanic Advisory Board, with the goal of reaching out to the Hispanic community to acquaint them with Girl Scout programs and recruit girls and adults. Collectively, GSSNE has an extensive community based network of troops and afterschool programs working through established organizations. There is a need to introduce and engage young girls from underserved communities to leadership development and empowerment opportunities. GSSNE is committed to ensuring that all girls have access to our well-developed resources regardless of their zip code and/or economic situation. Currently the number of GSSNE members is not representative of the RI Latino population. The Hispanic Advisory Board believes that it is due to a lack of awareness, particularly for limited English speaking households.
GSSNE does not plan a distinct chapter, rather an inclusive approach to increase participation in existing troops and programs. The inclusive approach aims to be mindful of the barriers preventing young girls from participating in GSSNE activities and proactively addressing those challenges in collaboration with partners who are committed to transforming communities.
