About Our Council

Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona is a non-profit organization with services and programs open to all Girl Scouts ages 5-17 in Southern Arizona. We are one of 112 Girl Scout councils across the nation, privileged to serve nearly 5,000 Girl Scouts 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 reach more Girl Scouts through our Staff-Supported Program. As one of only a few councils in the United States implementing this approach, Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona reaches Girl Scouts 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 to making the dream of Girl Scouting a reality for more and more Girl Scouts.

Our Mission

Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.


Girl Scout Promise & Law

Girl Scout Promise 

On my honor, I will try:

    And to live by the Girl Scout Law.

*Members may substitute for the word God in accordance with their own spiritual beliefs.

Girl Scout Law

I will do my best to be
    honest and fair,
    friendly and helpful,
    considerate and caring, 
    courageous and strong, and
    responsible for what I say and do, 
and to 
    respect myself and others, 
    respect authority,
    use resources wisely,
    make the world a better place, and 
    be a sister to every Girl Scout. 



Our Geographic Coverage

Our council, encompassing seven counties in Southern Arizona—with resource centers located in Tucson, Yuma, Sierra Vista, and Nogales—sits on the original homelands of indigenous peoples. It is their care and keeping of these lands that allow us to be here today. As we affirm our Girl Scout values of inclusiveness and diversity, it is our honor and responsibility to help broaden awareness throughout our community and ensure that our members feel represented and valued.
