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.
