Girl Scouting is the ultimate leadership experience available for girls ages 5-17. Girl Scouts of Central and Western Massachusetts serves more than 12,000 girls in grades K-12 with the strong support of more than 5,000 adult volunteers in 186 towns and cities in central and western Massachusetts.

The Girl Scout program allows girls to discover the fun, friendship and power of girls together, while building their own personal leadership qualities. GSCWM offers a wide range of programs in the arts and culture, health and well-being, science, technology and engineering, life skills and the environment. GSCWM supports girls by giving them extraordinary opportunities to explore, experience and learn about their world, and helps girls recognize they are vital members of their communities.
