Girl Scouts of Connecticut develops strategic partnerships with corporations to champion youth education, leadership development, interest in STEM, financial literacy, and more. Our partners provide critical funding, programming,and in-kind goods and services for our four program pillars: STEM, Outdoors, Entrepreneurship, and Life Skills. They also support Girl Scout camp operations,bolster financial assistance, and help carry out our DEI mission.
Our partners also play an important role in Girl Scout programming. It’s good for businesses to incorporate volunteer opportunities with their corporate giving. These programs improve employee satisfaction, promote employee engagement, and enhance retention. Girl Scouting relies heavily on adult volunteers and mentors, giving company employees endless ways to engage with Girl Scouts as subject matter experts, workshop or event facilitators, or troop leaders. Corporate volunteers also participate in work parties at our camps,provide helping hands at our fundraising events, serve as keynote speakers and panelists, and lead our organization as board members.
Girl Scouts of Connecticut’s Corporate Partnership Program provides an opportunity for businesses – like yours! – to invest in our future workforce through the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, Signature Fundraising Events and In-Kind Donations.
