GSNC Program Spotlight

Program Spotlight

Girl Scouting offers girls the opportunity to explore their skills and interests which will inspire them to reach their personal best through a variety of fun and enriching leadership experiences. But more importantly, no matter where or how they participate, girls get the necessary guidance they need from adult volunteers and council staff to develop their leadership skills and understand how those skills can be used to make a difference in the world.

Rather than just meeting in a Troop setting, Girl Scouts in Nassau County have the opportunity to participate in events and programs.

Before registering for a GSNC Program, please review important registration information.
