About Our Council
Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona is a non-profit organization with services and programs open to all girls ages 5-17 in Southern Arizona. We are one of 112 Girl Scout councils across the nation, privileged to serve nearly 5,000 girls and over 2,000 adult volunteers.
While our volunteer-led troops are a big part of what we do and support, Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona has taken a unique approach to reaching more girls through our Social Impact Program. As one of only a few councils in the United States implementing this approach, Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona uses a staff-led model to reach girls who may not normally have the opportunity to participate in the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. Because times have changed and more families in Arizona live in poverty, there are fewer and fewer parents who have the time to volunteer as a leader of a troop. Our council believes it is vitally important to devote resources and time into making the dream of Girl Scouting a reality for more and more girls.
Our Geographic Coverage
Our council spans seven counties in Southern Arizona, with resource centers located in Tucson, Yuma, Sierra Vista, and Nogales.
