Girl Scouts of Orange County’s All Girl Initiative expands the ways Orange County girls can participate in Girl Scouts, so every girl from every social, cultural, economic, and developmental sphere can experience the lifechanging benefits Girl Scouts provides. Through this initiative, Girl Scouts reaches girls who might not have access to Girl Scouts through the traditional volunteer-led troop model and provides volunteers new resources that help them engage girls from different social, emotional, and/or physical realms in the Girl Scout Leadership Experience.
In 2022, Girl Scouts of Orange County provided volunteers new resources through collaborations with Western Youth Services and the Behavioral Health Training Collaborative.
While the traditional volunteer-led troop model remains the primary way that girls across Orange County experience Girl Scouts, Girl Scouts of Orange County now offers Girl Scouts through Community Programs troops at afterschool programs, housing centers, and more. We also launched Troop Anywhere (a staff-led troop for K-8 girls) and the Lounge (unique sessions for Girl Scout Seniors and Ambassadors) to serve girls virtually.
