Staff-Supported Program

We believe the life-changing benefits of Girl Scouts should be available to all!

To serve the needs of the diverse youth and families in Southern Arizona, we offer various opportunities to participate in Girl Scouts through our staff-supported programs.

Adelante Jovencitas

Adelante Jovencitas (AJ) focuses on the unique needs of youth impacted by or at risk for involvement with the juvenile justice system.

AJ places a special emphasis on empowering youth to engage in positive pursuits and explore critical life skills, including career exploration, healthy relationships, and self-care techniques. Youth learns from a diverse set of program facilitators, who bring unique perspectives and experiences.

AJ's positive and stigma-free environment gives youth the opportunity to explore new interests and skills without fear of judgment, focusing on their strengths and looking forward to their futures.

Girl Scouts Beyond Bars (GSBB)

Girl Scouts Beyond Bars (GSBB) connects youth and their incarcerated caregivers to build and preserve relationships, and foster leadership development in both youth and their caregivers. Through GSBB we provide opportunities for interaction between youth and their caregivers who are incarcerated in the Perryville Complex in Goodyear, AZ. GSBB enhances the caregiver-child bond while promoting increased self-esteem and self-worth.

During this program, our trained staff work with youth and their caregivers while engaging in Girl Scouts activities such as STEM, life skills, goal-setting and challenge seeking, and much more. Youth and their caregivers develop practical skills while working together in a classroom-like setting as a more engaging way to relate to one another and work toward a common goal. 

Group Home Programs

Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona is committed to serving youth impacted by the foster care system. Program staff collaborates with youth to create a fun and safe space while exploring topics such as self-esteem, self-worth, healthy relationships, leadership, and life skills.

School Programs

Our school-based programs provide the Girl Scout Leadership Experience—STEM, outdoors, life skills, and entrepreneurship—for youth and their caregivers who may otherwise perceive our programs as inaccessible. Offering programs directly at schools allows us to meet youth where they are with consistent, reliable program opportunities in a safe and familiar location.
