Since 1980, the Girl Scouts Louisiana East Outreach program has empowered girls, giving them the ability and confidence to make positive decisions about their health, education and future. Girls in our Outreach program are building a foundation of success!
Our programs are delivered in schools and community centers to give girls a foundational Girl Scout experience. Girls are inspired to build new skills and learn to live by the Girl Scout Promise and Law.
Each year, the Council provides a variety of activities and curricula that allow younger girls to explore topics such as safety, leadership, health and fitness, personal hygiene, self-esteem, science and the arts.
Girl Scout staff members perform the role of troop leaders and meet with girls during or after school. Together, they complete activities and requirements for badges and journeys developed specifically to meet the girls' needs and interests.
Girl Scouts Outreach is tailored to meet the changing needs, challenges and interests of today's girls. These staff-led programs provide girls living in low-to-moderate income neighborhoods an opportunity to participate in Girl Scouting - an opportunity they might not otherwise have due to limited access. Girls gain skills that will help them reach their full potential, equipping them to be leaders in their own homes, schools and communities and excel academically.
Since its inception, the Council's Outreach program has served thousands of Girl Scouts spanning generations. Donations of $5,000 are requested to ensure the continued success of Outreach work in under-served areas in southeast Louisiana.
Donors will be recognized on GSLE’s website and in the Annual Report. Donors will also be given the opportunity to visit an Outreach site to experience a troop meeting and activity.
