Girl Scouts Heart of Central California values diversity, equity, and inclusion, both in concept and in practice, as we support girls and invest in our community. Across 18 counties, our girls, volunteers, alumnae, and staff comprise diverse communities and identities that encompass ability, ethnicity, gender identity, political affiliation, race, religion, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status.
We acknowledge the historical impacts of systemic racism and oppression that affect our Girl Scout family and society, which continue to have a lasting impact today. GSHCC is wholly committed to building an anti-racist and anti-oppressive environment. It is a Girl Scout movement-wide journey based on respect for one another, and we find strength in the knowledge that we embark on this journey together.
At GSHCC, our mission is to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. We offer a diverse and inclusive array of programming and perspectives with the goal of ensuring all girls, volunteers, and staff have a safe space, where they can learn and grow and be their authentic selves.
