Girl Scouts: Where are we going?
Where are we going? And who picks the direction? Girl Scouting is searching for an identity. The GS corporate office wants to be recognized as the preeminent authority on all things relating to girls. The GSUSA Core Business Strategy implies that membership in Girl Scouting is a product: the more sold, the better. “ Greenbloods” want to preserve values and tradition along with camps.

GSUSA tried to distill the essence of their successful tradition into six week courses that could be done anywhere by anyone. But it’s not working. Meanwhile, councils are selling camps, fabricating statistics to justify the liquidations, and dismissing volunteer concerns.
If GSUSA corporate leadership stops serving their current members in hopes of attracting a larger customer base, they are undermining their reason for existence, betraying their girls, and alienating the members who fund them.
