Girl Scouts of Alaska is proud to work with community partners who offer quality activities to enhance the Girl Scout experience.
Community partner program opportunities allow girls to meet other Girl Scouts and members of their community. It’s also demonstrates Girl Scouting’s commitment to community service and encourages girls to wear their Girl Scout uniform and live by the Girl Scout Promise and Law while they improve our communities.
When deciding to attend a community partner event, troop leaders should research the event/activity prior to registering to ensure that the event meets the needs and interests of their girls and that all safety requirements are met.
