Girl Scouts Heart of Michigan Continues to Serve Girls amid Pandemic

Jackson, MI — Girl Scouts Heart of Michigan (GSHOM) is pleased to announce Girl Scouts is NOT canceled.

GSHOM is here and ready to support girls through the best girl-led leadership program. With many extracurricular activities on pause, Girl Scouting remains the safest option for girls to build courage, confidence, and character, while building lifelong friendships – even from home.

Troops are finding creative ways to use technology to stay connected, help their communities, and achieve their goals. With added safety precautions and modifications, girls are also participating in traditional Girl Scout activities, including in-person socially distanced meetings, earning badges and participating in Treats & Reads – nuts, candies, and magazines – the fall product program.

GSHOM council staff are leading online meetings for new Girl Scouts, so girls can get started on their Girl Scout experience right away before joining a classic troop. Girls will be introduced to the Girl Scout Promise and Law, participate in fun enriching activities, and meet new friends.

Several adult volunteer positions, including Troop Leaders, are available. GSHOM provides online trainings and meetings to fully support volunteers every step of the way.

Girl Scouts is more than just an after-school activity. It is a research-backed and time-tested program that encourages girls to discover, connect, and take action. Girl Scouts are more likely to develop a strong sense of self, display positive values, seek challenges, form healthy relationships, and become community problem solvers. In today’s uncertain times, girls need Girls Scouts now more than ever.

We're Girl Scouts Heart of Michigan
With over 15,000 members across 34 counties in Michigan, we believe girls can change the world. It began over 100 years ago with one woman, Girl Scouts' founder Juliette Gordon "Daisy" Low, who believed in the power of every girl. She organized the first Girl Scout troop on March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia, and every year since, we've made her vision a reality, helping girls discover their strengths, passions, and talents. Today we continue the Girl Scout mission of building girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. We're the preeminent leadership development organization for girls. And with programs for girls from coast to coast and across the globe, Girl Scouts Heart of Michigan offers every girl a chance to do something amazing. To volunteer, reconnect, donate, or join, visit
