Girl Scouts is the world's preeminent organization for developing leadership skills in girls and young women, building girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place. Our Council is a local organization chartered by Girl Scouts of the USA to provide support for Girl Scouting and Girl Scout troops/groups in Monterey, San Benito, Santa Cruz, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, and Ventura Counties. Central coast living provides a richness which when added to the Girl Scout program creates options only limited by the girls themselves in choosing and designing activities that follow their interests and dreams. From fitness in rock climbing, soccer and surfing to art and mural design, girls are presented with a multitude of options. Plus, by tapping into scientific and marine biology resources and the mosaic of cultures, food and music to be found in the local region, girls acquire understanding and growth in knowledge. Just as the geography of the six counties is diverse, so are its communities and residents. Since its inception, Girl Scouts of California's Central Coast has taken responsibility to be a community resource, leading as well as collaborating to create outreach programs in migrant camps and other non-traditional settings, and tackling such contemporary issues as teen parenthood, drugs and alcohol. A twenty-year collaboration with Pajaro Valley Unified School District's Migrant Education Program recently won a GSUSA Quality Recognition Award.
