Program Providers

Is your troop looking for program opportunities to help empower your girls to explore their interests and acquire new knowledge and skills? Girl Scouts of Maine is honored to work with businesses and community organizations to offer opportunities to girls to enhance their Girl Scout Leadership Experience. Program Providers provide quality programs that align with the Girl Scout mission and values. Many of our providers offer Badge/Journey related workshops, community service projects, and fun opportunities to help girls become G.I.R.L.s™ (Go-Getters, Innovators, Risk-Takers, Leaders).

If you represent a business or organization interested in providing program opportunities to local Girl Scouts, please review the Program Providers packet and submit your Program Providers application. By working together, we help young girls discover new things about themselves and their communities, take action to make the world a better place, and believe in the power of every G.I.R.L.

Program Providers are organized by region based on the Treasure ME! Patch Program. Travel throughout our great state and see if you can experience what all four regions have to offer!

For more information about Girl Scouts of Maine’s Program Providers, contact Customer Care at customercare@gsmaine.org or by phone at 888-922-4763.
