Community Outreach

Each year, Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri serves thousands of youth through community outreach programs. These programs provide a Girl Scout experience to girls in areas underserved by the traditional troop experience. Community outreach programs are primarily delivered in schools and community centers to provide youth with leadership and life skills and to promote positive culture in the communities in which the youth live. Please email Community Outreach or call 314.592.2314 for more information.

Be a Friend First (BFF)

We offer an innovative bullying-prevention initiative for middle school–aged girls. BFF (Be a Friend First) is based on the Girl Scouts of the USA's national leadership curriculum and is designed to help girls develop healthy relationship skills, understand relational aggression and learn about conflict resolution and bully prevention information.

Project Anti Violence (PAVE)

Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri developed the PAVE program nearly 20 years ago to help youth grow strong by empowering them to prevent violence in their lives through helping them develop stronger social-emotional intelligence. PAVE can be delivered in a three or five-session format. The program has been delivered to more than 300,000 young people in Eastern Missouri since its inception.
