Along with these communities, the Community Engagement team supports additional under-resourced eastern Massachusetts cities/towns on an as-needed basis (such as Framingham, Waltham, and Brockton).
Through targeted community outreach and partnerships with schools, community centers, and housing authorities, GSEMA works within communities that need additional support to deliver the full Girl Scout experience and programming. Our Community Engagement team identifies barriers to participation, provides individualized assistance, and creates community-specific solutions to bring the Girl Scout Leadership Experience to girls who may not otherwise be introduced to Girl Scouts.

Girl Scouts Anti-Racism Patch Program
Girl Scouting prepares girls to be leaders in our world, to speak up, speak out, and take action for fairness, equality, and compassion for all people, and to arm them with the courage, confidence, and character they need to make the world a better place. The Anti-Racism patch represents the first Girl Scout My Values patch created by GSUSA to reflect the values of the Girl Scout Movement.
