 The Future Starts Here: It starts with you

When you support Girl Scouting, you are investing in an organization with a proven track record that goes back one hundred years.  Over the last century, Girl Scouting has helped prepare over 50MM American girls to become leaders in their own lives and the wider world.  Today’s girls need your support to develop the courage, confidence, and character, they will need to make tomorrow’s world a better place for all of us.

How can you help?

Give your time. Girl Scouting is driven by volunteers, by adults working with girls on a regular or a one time basis;  with groups of girls or as mentors for individual girls; with girls of different ages or with a specific age group.  The time commitment can be tailored to your schedule.

Share your talents. Activities are as varied as the interests of girls – STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), the outdoors/environment, financial literacy, healthy living and healthy relationships (including anti-bullying), sports, the arts, construction, social skills, and much, much more!

Be a partner. Girl Scouts of California’s Central Coast collaborates with other youth organizations, schools and school districts, businesses and corporations, and non-profits.

Make a Gift-in-Kind. Donations of supplies, equipment and people power to support projects and events can extend the council budget to serve more girls and/or fill gaps in services.

Invest in a girl. It takes more than cookies to change the world. The Girl Scout Cookie sale raises about one-half of the funds required to prepare today’s girls to become tomorrow’s leaders.  A gift of Girl Scouting is an investment in the future.
