Girl Scouts of Central Maryland

Girl Scouts of Central Maryland is an inclusive organization dedicated to the growth and empowerment of all girls so they become confident, courageous, strong and successful women. With a personal commitment to purposeful interaction between girls, volunteers, staff and board members, we are able to provide a girl-centered program grounded by the Girl Scout mission and Promise and Law. We will empower girls to face and meet new challenges, develop their self-esteem, create opportunties for self-actualization, and value and learn from diverse experiences and relationships. Girls will be encouraged to explore the world and appreciate other cultures. Working together with volunteers and corporate partners GSCM will continue to enhance our visibility in the community, realizing that public financial support is crucial to fulfilling our mission.

Girl Scouts of Central Maryland serves 30,000 girls in 2,053 troops and groups in Baltimore City, Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Carroll, Harford and Howard counties with the help of nearly10,000 dedicated and committed adult volunteers.
