Girl Scout Mission Statement Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. The Girl Scout Promise On my honor, I will try: To serve God and my country, To help people at all times, And to live by the Girl Scout Law. The Girl Scout Law I will do my best to be honest and fair, friendly and helpful, considerate and caring, courageous and strong, and responsible for what I say and do, and to respect myself and others, respect authority, use resources wisely, make the world a better place, and be a sister to every Girl Scout.

A year to remember

a century to celebrate! Dear Friends, Everyone thinks they know Girl Scouts. Since we’ve been around for almost 100 years they think they know what we do. They think they know the difference we make. But, if asked, they often find it very hard to put that knowledge into words. The reason is simple. Girl Scouts isn’t cookies or camp, crafts or badges. Those are a few examples of what we do, but it’s not who we are. What we are is something intangible. As we enter our second century, we’re the place for girls who want to change the world. Changing the world doesn’t mean being president. Although it could be. It doesn’t mean being a Fortune 500 CEO. Although it could be. It doesn’t mean shattering a glass ceiling. Or inventing something amazing. Or becoming famous. Although it could be. Changing the world has a different meaning for every person. Girl Scouts gives girls the power to define that phrase. That power comes from the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. Younger girls develop their leadership skills; older girls use them. But, more importantly, all girls learn the true meaning of leadership. Leadership isn’t just standing in front of a group and taking charge. It’s also looking in the mirror and liking who you see. It’s choosing to do the right thing, despite peer pressure to take a different path. It’s a never-ending series of small decisions that monumentally change the rest of your life. Through Girl Scouts, girls who are timid become confident. Girls who are vocal learn introspection. Girls who feel powerless learn they have a voice and we teach them how to use it. That’s what Girl Scouts is all about and will continue to be about for the next 100 years. It’s about becoming a person who understands the world in which they live and who wants to make it better. It’s about becoming a person who faces challenges and doesn’t shy away from them. It’s about knowing who you are and feeling confident enough to be yourself. It’s about changing the world.

Girls earned parts of several Brownie Try-Its during a backyard camping activity.


In August 2009, the Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore began a strategic learning initiative to critically examine the council and develop winning strategies to overcome the obstacles to increased girl membership and participation. The board of directors created a strategic learning team – comprised of board members, volunteers and staff – to lead the process. The strategic learning team conducted research in five areas – customers, competitors, stakeholders, sector trends and our own realities. Once this research was complete, the strategic learning team recommended the establishment of three groups to focus on the key priorities that it identified – partnerships and collaborations, systems, and financial health. The guiding document for all decisions is the leadership message below.

Our Leadership Message The Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore is different than other groups and organizations that provide services to girls. While those organizations focus on activities that last a season, Girl Scouting provides experience that lasts a lifetime. Through innovative, girl-led programs that engage girls’ curiosity, the Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore encourages participation through continually revised programs that connect with girls using the technology they want and the methods they desire.

Competitive Focus The Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore is dedicated to providing a complete Girl Scout experience to girls in kindergarten through third grade that grows along with them, encouraging girls to continue the Girl Scout program throughout
