Including ALL Girls

Girl Scouts provide an inclusive and enriching community that is accessible to ALL girls.

The Including ALL Girls Initiative
Funded by generous grants from Mitsubishi Electric America Foundation and the HSC Foundation, Including ALL Girls educates girls about inclusion and how they can include girls with disabilities in all aspects of Girl Scouts.  GSCNC strives to make inclusion a top priority in Girl Scouts. For this purpose, GSCNC designed a specific inclusion position for our council. The Inclusion Specialist serves as a resource and a guide to ensure the inclusion of girls with disabilities within the Girl Scout community.
