Happy New Year!

We want to take a moment to wish everyone a happy and spectacular new year! We believe in your ability to keep your resolutions and make a difference in 2019. Thank you for everything you do!

In the world of Girl Scouts, we’re excited to make this the best year ever. Last year was an amazing year for both Western New York and Girl Scouts of the USA. Locally, we saw our membership grow and flourish. This excitement around Girl Scouts wasn’t only in our area.

Here’s a glimpse of GSUSA’s 2018:

  • More than 570,000 Girl Scouts explored the outdoors at our camps, with 170,000 attending resident Girl Scout summer camps.
  • More than 1 million girls participated in the Girl Scout Cookie Program, the largest girl-led entrepreneurial program in the world.
  • We’ve reached 450,000 underserved girls nationwide with Girl Scouts’ unrivaled leadership programming.
  • 6,000 Gold Award Girl Scouts have tackled society’s grand challenges—— from curbing the use of plastic straws to combating human trafficking—— while still in high school!
  • We released 30 new badges, including STEM badges in cybersecurity, mechanical engineering, environmental stewardship, robotics, and space science.

We can’t believe how amazing those numbers are. Not only the numbers, but the stories and impact behind each girl and experience.

Here’s to a fantastic 2019!
