Girl Advisory Board

Want to meet other girls from your council? Do you have ideas about events or programs you would like to see our council offer? Then the Girl Scouts of Central Texas Girl Advisory Board is for you! As a part of the Girl Advisory Board, 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

The Girl Advisory Board gives Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors the opportunity to serve as the council’s voice for all girls in Girl Scouts of Central Texas. Through youth-led activities, the board will enrich the lives of Girl Scouts through leadership projects, mentorship, and living by the Girl Scout Law. By lending a voice to a movement that wants, needs, and values youth-led contributions, these young leaders will play a significant role in shaping the ongoing work of Girl Scouts of Central Texas.

Purpose

The Girl Scout Advisory Board partners with staff members on council projects to support Girl Scout members. Board members will also have the opportunity to make recommendations to and share their ideas with, Girl Scouts of Central Texas Board of Directors. By facilitating youth-adult partnership, these leadership opportunities allow Girl Advisory Board members to influence decision-making processes in our council.

Commitment

Membership is a one-year commitment. Terms run from October 1–September 30. Regional board members will meet monthly in their areas between October–March. Exact meeting dates and times are established based on the availability of the majority of girl members. All-board members meet twice per year. Girl Advisory Board members do not meet between June–August.
