Girl Scouts of Central California South abides by Girl Scouts of USA’s Statement of Trust:
Statement of Trust
Girl Scouts of the USA creates national program materials to serve our vast and diverse community of girls. To help bring topics “off the page and into life,” we sometimes provide girls — and their volunteers — with suggestions about what people across the country and around the world are doing, as well as movies, books, music, web pages, and more that might spark girl interest.
At Girl Scouts of the USA, we know that not every example or suggestion we provide will work for every girl, family, volunteer, or community.
In partnership with those who assist you with your Girl Scout group, including parents, faith groups, schools, and community organizations, we trust you to choose “real life topic experts” from your community, as well as movies, books, music, websites and other opportunities that are most appropriate for the girls in your area and that will enrich their Girl Scout activities.
Thank you for all you do to bring the Girl Scout Leadership Experience to life with girls, so that they become leaders in their own lives—and the future leaders the world needs!
