Seniors/Ambassadors

Girl Scout Seniors and Ambassadors are ready to take the world by storm—and Girl Scouts will give them millions of ways to do it.

They can travel to amazing places like Costa Rica, Japan, or India; explore exciting careers in a variety of fields, from science to the arts to education to government; take on big projects and help others in a big way. And, of course, they can earn their Gold Award, which (by the way) adds that “little something extra” to their college applications. Seniors and Ambassadors are eager to spread their wings—and Girl Scouts helps them take flight.

Are you interested expanding your Girl Scout experience by mentoring younger girls? If you’ve completed 9th grade you’re eligible to earn the Volunteer-in-Training Award.

If you have questions or are looking for more information, please contact Elizabeth Helton at ehelton@gsmaine.org or download the Intent Form and Log of Hours Form.

Teen Advisory Group

Want to meet other girls from your council? Do you have ideas about events or programs you would like to see our council offer? Will you be in eighth grade in the fall?

Then the Girl Scouts of Maine Teen Advisory Group is for you! As a part of the Teen Advisory Group you will be able to give input as to what you would like to see offered in our council. This is a great opportunity to wield your leadership skills.

Mission & Purpose

MISSION: The Teen Advisory Group (TAG) gives girls who are 14 years or older in 8th – 12th grade who are registered members of Girl Scouts of Maine, the opportunity to serve as the girl-voice of our council; their focus and projects will depend on the needs of Maine Girl Scouts. By lending a voice to a movement that wants, needs, and values girl-led contributions, these young leaders will play a significant role in shaping the ongoing program development work of Girl Scouts of Maine. Through girl-led activities, the group will enrich the lives of girls through leadership projects, mentorship, and living by the Girl Scout Law. The Teen Advisory Group will be comprised of up to 9 girl members from our council. Each girl brings her unique perspective from her experiences, background, and geographic area to create a unified voice and vision for girls across the state.

PURPOSE: This select group of girls will work as an advisory group that partners with staff members on projects ranging from programs, girl activities, girl engagement, trainings, marketing, social trends, and such other areas. TAG members will also have the opportunity to share their input with Girl Scouts of Maine’s Board of Directors. Additionally, each girl in the advisory group will assist with planning and/or facilitating GSME events.

Commitment

What is the Teen Advisory Group commitment?
Girls make a minimum 16 month commitment to participate in the Teen Advisory Group. The term runs August 1 of the current membership year through December 31 of the following membership year.

Teen Advisory Group members will meet bi-monthly, exact meeting dates and times are established based on the availability of the majority of girl members. All group members will serve on sub-groups which may require meeting more frequently.
