Alaska Civil Air Patrol:
Community Partners Program
Girl Scouts of Alaska is proud to work with community partners to enhance quality activities to enhance the Girl Scout experience.
Community partner program opportunities allow girls to meet other Girl Scouts and members of their community. These partnerships also demonstrate Girl Scout's commitment to community service and encourage girls to wear their Girl Scout uniform and live by the Girl Scout Promise and Law as they improve our communities.
When deciding to attend a community partner event, troop leaders should research the event/activity prior to registering to ensure that the event meets the needs and interests of their girls and that all safety requirements are met.
The Alaska Civil Air Patrol is a diverse group of cadet and adult volunteers that serve their communities, the State of Alaska and our nation. They are “Citizens Serving Communities” through a wide variety of methods, from conducting search and rescue for the US Air Force to assisting local Emergency Management Agencies. CAP offers aviation and aerospace workshops, hangar field trips, and guest speakers. For more information contact Lynda MacPherson.
