Community Troops

A Community Troop provides the Girl Scout Leadership Experience in a troop setting to girls who might not have another opportunity to join a troop in their area. Community Troops are led by trained Girl Scout staff members, called Community Troop Managers, and they provide troop leadership for multiple troops in various schools, churches and centers

Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri believes that all girls deserve the opportunity to develop into tomorrow’s leaders. When girls participate in Girl Scouts they benefit in 5 important ways:

  • They display positive values
  • They seek challenges and learn from setbacks
  • They form and maintain healthy relationships
  • They learn to identify and solve problems in their community
