Five GSEMA Girl Scouts


We’re Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts (GSEMA)―30,000 strong, with 19,000 youth members and 11,000 volunteers in 178 communities. We’re here to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.

Research shows that girls learn best in an all-girl, girl-led, and girl-friendly environment. Girl Scouts is a place where she’ll practice different skills, explore her potential, take on leadership positions—and even feel allowed to fail, dust herself off, get up, and try again.

Our Girl Scout Leadership Experience is a one-of-a-kind leadership development program for girls, with proven results. It is based on time-tested methods and research-backed programming that help girls take the lead—in their own lives and in the world. 

We welcome all girls in grades K-12. You can join any day, year-round. If a Girl Scout troop isn’t immediately available in your area, consider becoming an independent member. You can do the same things, earn the same awards, and go to the same events as every other Girl Scout.

We also welcome women and men over the age of 18 to serve as Girl Scout volunteers, working directly with girls or helping the council in event or administrative roles.
