Girl Advisory Board

Girl Advisory Board
Do you have ideas about events you would to see our council offer? Want to meet girls from across the council? If so, then the GSCP2P Girl Advisory Board (GAB) is for you! As a part of the GAB, you will be able to give input as to what you would like to see offered in our council. This is a great opportunity to wield your leadership skills.

MISSION: The GAB allows Girl Scout Cadettes and older the opportunity to serve as the council’s voice for all girls in Girl Scouts Carolinas Peaks to Piedmont. Through girl-led activities, the board will enrich the lives of girls through leadership projects, mentorship and living by the Girl Scout Law. By lending a voice to a movement that wants, needs and values girl-led contributions, these young leaders will play a significant role in shaping the ongoing work of GCSP2P.

PURPOSE: This select group of girls will work as an advisory group who partner with staff members and volunteers on projects ranging from program development to research and marketing. By facilitating youth-adult partnerships, these leadership opportunities allow GAB members to influence decision-making processes in our council.

Who can join the GAB? GSCP2P registered Girl Scout Cadettes, Seniors or Ambassadors.

GAB Organizational Structure: The GAB will be made up of five girl members from each area (Asheville, east Triad, west Triad, Gastonia and Hickory) for a total of 25 girl members. Members will meet regionally on a regular basis and will meet together one time per year. Each regional team will be guided by a GSCP2P program manager and GAB volunteer mentors.

For more information about GAB, please e-mail us or contact the program manager at your local service center.
