  • USAGSO's 2017 Outdoor Challenge


    USAGSO knows that girls thrive in the outdoors! And we’ve heard your voices, and know you want more time in the outdoors through Girl Scouts. Taking girls outside can be fun for everyone because you see girls develop both outdoor skills and a passion for nature. 

    We have put together 9 outdoor challenges that will be introduced throughout the year to encourage outdoor activities. As part of the challenge, we ask that you take pictures or make videos, or write a blog (or a vlog) of your participation in the outdoor challenge, and send your creative productions to overseaschallenge@girlscouts.org-- you then may see them on Facebook or on USAGSO's website. Once you have completed a certain number of challenges for your age level (details provided in link below), you will earn the USAGSO Outdoor Challenge Patch. So, go outdoors and explore!

  • I can’t wait to Volunteer!


    USA Girl Scout Overseas volunteers are Amazing! You are a mentor, cheerleader, friend, advisor and so much more to our girls every day. You know how the Girl Scout program enriches the lives of our girls by providing important skill sets that will last a lifetime.

    Share your love of the Girl Scout program by helping us to reach our goal in serving an additional 450 girls overseas by recruiting new troop leaders. USAGSO is kicking off our “Invite a Friend” incentive program that encourages new volunteers to start either a Daisy, Brownie, or Junior troop during November 15 – January 31, 2017.

    Registered adults who recruit a friend to start a new Daisy, Brownie or Junior Troop will receive $50 to use at Girl Scouts’ Official Online Store. The new troop leader will receive a new Volunteer Resource Pack which includes a Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouts, pins, a badge pack, a Journey set, and a fun tote bag.

    It’s easy to participate but there are few steps to follow. Once your friend has:

    ·         Completed an application and required background checks

    ·         Joined Girl Scouts as a troop leader (01)

    ·         Starts a new USAGSO Daisy, Brownie or Junior troop

    Complete the quick survey at...

  • Virtual Outdoor Training Resources Available NOW!


    Taking girls outside can be a fun time for everyone as girls develop outdoor skills and a passion for nature. Now it’s even easier for Girl Scout volunteers to introduce girls to the wonders of hiking and camping. Whether you’re a camping pro, or just starting out, you can help girls of all ages have a positive experience in the great outdoors. 

    Thanks to a grant from the Elliott Wildlife Values Project, we’ve created six new outdoor skill-building videos especially for volunteers newer to Girl Scouts and older Girl Scouts as they take younger girls outside. These videos can help volunteers give girls a sense of empowerment in the outdoors, show them how to use natural resources more wisely (including respecting our environment and wildlife), and help them become lifelong stewards of the land and our natural resources.

  • USAGSO Financial Aid Available!


    We are very pleased to debut one of the many changes that USAGSO is developing to support our members.  Beginning in the 2016-2017 membership year, families in need of financial assistance to cover the costs of girl membership fees can request funds from USAGSO. To request financial assistance, click here. Funds are distributed based on need and in order of receipt. Funding is limited; eligible financial assistance requests will be awarded as long as funds are available.
