Community Partners

Our approved community partners are organizations approved by Girl Scouts San Diego to offer events, opportunities, and services based on the Girl Scout Leadership Experience.

Community partners are organizations whose activities and values align with the Girl Scout mission, and include:

  • For-profit companies offering special programming or discounts to Girl Scouts.
  • Nonprofit organizations that provide community service opportunities or Girl-Scout specific programming.
  • Community groups that serve a specific community of girls and have established a mutually beneficial bond with Girl Scouts San Diego.
  • Sole proprietors who specialize in something of interest to Girl Scouts.
