Girl Scouting is not a religiously affliliated organization. However, we recognize that many of our members practice various faiths. Though we may not all believe in the same god or practice our faiths in the same ways, exploring one's faith can help girls grow as Girl Scouts and as young women.

The Interfaith Committee is also gathering Interfaith/Religious Points of Contact for each of our geographic regions. The role of the Point of Contact for their region would be to serve as a religious resource - anyone in that area (volunteers, troops, Field Directors) who was interested in interfaith/religious programming would be able to contact their Point of Contact to find out more information, advice, and tips on appropriate and successful programming. Having geographic-based teams allows our Council to ensure that there are opportunities that are accessible to girls who live anywhere in the Council - this also helps to cut down on travel for girls and volunteers. The expectation would still be that programming in all areas represents a range of faiths.
If you are interested in representing your region as the Interfaith Point of Contact, fill out this survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?sm=_2ftYRHZeXWDpeUlPWxUOvSg_3d_3d
