The Girl Scout program offers incredible opportunities for girls to grow in their leadership skills, develop lifelong friendships, and earn awards. Girls discover who they are and what they value. They connect with others and take action to make the world a better place.
Our Program Guide is packed with something for everyone. Each program is designed so that your girl can do the things she likes best - in a troop, on her own or with a friend.
Whether your girl wants to visit the magical world of fairies, meet a ballerina, solve a mystery at camp,
learn to code or dabble in digital photography, the 2015/2016 Program Guide has something for everyone!

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.
Even before we moved to our new location in Warwick, RI, we started to create a vision for the lower level of the building that would provide state of the art program facilities for the girls in our council.
The first step of that visioning is complete. We'll focus on six areas of excellence that will be integrated into all of our efforts going forward - both in the Center and via programs conducted in the communities we serve. We'll partner with the best and brightest individuals, organizations, and institutions to deliver exciting and high-quality programming for girls in these categories:
