Description:

Girl Scouts of Greater Iowa serves 67 counties in Iowa, two counties in South Dakota, and one county in Nebraska, where they carry out the Girl Scout mission of building girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. 

Girl Scouts of Greater Iowa incorporates three keys to leadership: they help girls Discover themselves, Connect with others, and Take Action to create positive change in their communities. Girl Scout troops, interest groups, and individual scouts regularly partner with local organizations and lead or support efforts to end hunger locally and around the world. Over 19,000 girls and 4000 adult mentors are active in Girl Scouts of Greater Iowa, providing volunteers, ideas, and leadership that makes the world a better place.

How to Help:

There are many ways for Iowans to support the Girl Scouts. Girls (grades k-12) can join a troop in their area, and adults (women and men over 18) can serve as adult mentors. Anyone who is interested in partnering on hunger (or in other ways) with Girl Scouts of Greater Iowa should contact them directly at (800) 342-8389 or info@gsiowa.org, or find a local Girl Scout troop through their online directory at http://www.girlscoutsiowa.org/troop.cfm.
