About Girl Scouts of Central Maryland, Inc.

  1. Mission:  The Girl Scouts of Central Maryland adopts and promotes the mission statement of Girl Scouts USA.  “Girl Scouts build girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place.”  The Vision of GSCM is to be the premier leadership experience for girls in the Central Maryland Region.  The Value proposition is that Girl Scouts is where girls find their voices and make them matter. 

  2. History:  The first Girl Scout Troop in the United States was organized in Savannah, Georgia on March 12, 1912 by Juliette Gordon Low.  As the Founder of the Girl Scouts USA, Ms. Low’s mission was to help girls and young women realize their full potential outside of the home.  The Girl Scout program is “fun with purpose,” based on the Girl Scout Promise and Law that generations of girls have followed for 103 years.

  3. Goals:  GSCM operates under a three-year strategic plan with goals and objectives relevant to all girls who live in Central Maryland.   In partnership with committed adults, through the GSCM Leadership Experience, girls develop qualities that will serve them all their lives – like strong values, social conscience, and conviction about their own potential and self-worth. 

    The goals for 2015-2018 were established in a strategic plan that promotes movement-wide customer focus.  With the target population of girls in kindergarten through 12th grade, the goals are:

    (a) to empower a culturally diverse population of girls through engagement in a Girl Scout pathway;

    (b) to increase the reach of GSCM’s programs and unique experiences by enrolling an increased number of girls, particularly girls from underserved communities,  as members of the Girl Scouts of Central Maryland; and

    (c) to recruit, screen and orient new and existing adult volunteers, who are guided and trained to mentor a culturally diverse Girl Scout population.  

    There are several priority objectives to achieve this goal that are detailed in the GSCM strategic plan, and include Membership; Volunteerism; Engagement; Funding; and Technology.
