Mission Statement

Girl Scouts’ mission is “to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place."

Girl Scouts unleashes the G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader) in every girl, preparing her for a lifetime of leadership—from taking a night-time hike under the stars to accepting a mission on the International Space Station; from lobbying the city council with her troop to holding a seat in Congress; from running her own cookie business today to tackling the nation's cybersecurity tomorrow.

The Girl Scout Leadership Experience, or GSLE, is a one-of-a-kind leadership development program for girls, with proven results. The GSLE is based on time-tested methods and research-backed programming that help girls take the lead in their own lives and in the world.

Research shows that girls learn best in an all-girl, girl-led, and girl-friendly environment. The inclusive, all-female environment of a Girl Scout troop creates a safe space where girls can try new things, develop a range of skills, take on leadership roles, and just be themselves. Girl Scouts is a place where girls practice different skills, explore their potential, and even feel allowed to fail, dust themselves off, get up, and try again.

Girl Scouts is proven to help girls thrive in five key ways as they:

  • Develop a strong sense of self
  • Seek challenges and learn from setbacks
  • Display positive values
  • Form and maintain healthy relationships
  • Identify and solve problems in the community
Put simply, in Girl Scouts, girls discover who they are, connect with others, and take action to make the world a better place.

Background

 Girl Scouts – Western Oklahoma, Inc. was formed in March 2008 from the merger of Girl Scouts Redlands and Sooner councils. The organization is headquartered in Oklahoma City and supports more than 11,000 girls and adult volunteers in a service area of 39 central and western Oklahoma counties. GSWestOK provides outdoor and camp opportunities at our resident camp, Camp E-Ko-Wah in Marlow, and is developing an urban STEM camp in Oklahoma City to be utilized by both Girl Scouts and schoolchildren around the state. 

Girl Scouts - Western Oklahoma continues the legacy started by founder Juliette Gordon Low in 2012, a time when women could not vote, hold public office, or own property. Since 1912, Girl Scouts has become the premier leadership program for girls and women in the United States, with more than 2.7 million girl and adult members. More than 59 million women in the United States identify as Girl Scouts alumnae.

Today Girl Scouts is reaching girls ages 5 to 17 years in all walks of life with leadership, self esteem, outdoor education and other opportunities through traditional troops to innovative programming in schools, public housing sites, juvenile detention centers, and other nontraditional settings.

 Girl Scouts believes every girl has an important role to play. When girls succeed, so does society.
Impact

Girl Scouts - Western Oklahoma works to create a consistent, high-quality program that is accessible to all girls who wish to participate. We work to maintain strong and diverse funding streams and provide sound management and financial stewardship.

Recent accomplishments:

  • Girl Scouts - Western Oklahoma continues to increase our service to girls through collaborative partnerships with public school systems, after-school programs, and other community organizations in central and western Oklahoma.
  • We maintain a program delivery model providing more than 60% of our program services to the most at-risk girl populations in our state, despite declining federal and state funding.
  • In March 2018, GSWestOK received the Oklahoma Business Ethics Community Impact Award for significant outreach efforts that serve to uplift the community, specifically by promoting strong principles, ethical leadership, and integrity.
  • In January 2018, GSWestOK received the Doug Stussi Award for Financial Stewardship for the Girls’ Advocacy Summit that led to the sale of Camp Cookieland.
Our strategic goals are to:
  • Increase our community support and streamline processes to attract and retain quality adult mentors and volunteers.
  • Create a culture within Girl Scouts that leads to greater retention of our employees and volunteers.
  • Implement program improvements within Girl Scouting that create sustainable growth for the organization while expanding our outreach and impact.
  • Expand STEM programming to reduce the gender gap in STEM and bring 2.5 million girls into the STEM pipeline nationally by 2025.
  • Work closely with our governing board to create succession planning, engagement practices, and improve board development with recruitment.
Needs

In support Girl Scouts’ national STEM initiative, GSWestOK needs funding for technology to provide computer, robotics, online ethics, and cybersecurity instruction.

Our Community Programs serves more than 2,000 at-risk and underserved girls yearly in multiple settings. Program requests from schools and community organizations continue to increase. Financial support is needed to support the program and provide scholarships for camps and other activities.

The Global Action Initiative offers outdoor education, high adventure training, and travel opportunities along with public service opportunities. Funding is needed to support this program.

Girl Scouts could not operate without our volunteers. Adult involvement is crucial in providing leadership programs to ensure girls' success. A critical need is for mentors to support older girls as they work toward the coveted Girl Scout Gold Award. As always, financial support is needed for these programs, especially to help more girls go for the Gold!
 
We know your time is in short supply. We have episodic opportunities for the busiest adult. Visit www.gswestok.org/volunteer for more information!

Community support is needed for a state-of-the-art urban STEM camp in Oklahoma City to provide STEM and outdoor education and training.

 

CEO/Executive Director Statement
Every day our staff and volunteers are blessed and inspired by the girls we serve in Girl Scouts. The ability of these girls to meet their challenges with courage, confidence and character while making the world a better place is an achievement worth celebrating.
 
Thanks to the ongoing support of our volunteers, United Way partners, and donors, we have been able to better serve central and western Oklahoma girls with strong, impactful programming. We are proud of our efforts with school partners to provide more in-school, after-school, and out-of-school programs. Our outreach efforts to girls in public housing sites, juvenile detention facilities, and alternative schools continues to expand as we work to fill an urgent need for leadership education. We are excited to be a STEM leader in Oklahoma. By promoting and expanding girls' access to STEM programs, we know they will lead the efforts to shape Oklahoma's future.
 
As we continue into the second century of Girl Scouting, we honor the legacy we have been given and look forward to our opportunities to serve girls in the future. It is an exciting time to be a Girl Scout! Thank you for your generous gifts and support of girls as they find their leadership voice through Girl Scouting.

  • Outdoor Programs: camp and high adventure team activities that provide outdoor skills that develop confidence and leadership.
  • Girl Awards: Bronze, Silver, and Gold awards recognizing girls' leadership and community service. The Gold Award is the highest award a girl can earn.

Program Short-term SuccessHelpDescription of short-term achievement(s) or improvement(s) that will result from this program.

Girls who develop the 5 Girl Scout Outcomes…

  • Are happier, healthier, and less likely to engage in problem behaviors or be victimized.
  • Girls who develop perseverance, positive self-esteem, and sociability have lower rates of obesity, depression, and aggression and show greater life satisfaction and well-being than those who do not develop such attributes or skills.
  • Achieve more academically and feel more engaged in school. When students are more self-aware and confident about their capabilities, they try harder to persist in the face of challenges.
  • Become strong job applicants. Employers recognize that skills such as good teamwork, decision‑making, and communication skills are important for their employees.
  • Become successful, well-adjusted adults. Children who learn to share and cooperate with others are more likely to have a college degree and a job 20 years later and are less likely to have problems such as substance abuse or brushes with the law.
Program Long-term SuccessHelpDescription of the ultimate change(s) that will result from this program. This may be far into the future or represent an ideal state.

In 2012, the Girl Scout Research Institute published an in-depth exploration of the effects of Girl Scouting on alumnae of multiple generations. Alumnae reported positive life outcomes to a greater degree than non-alumnae on several indicators of success, including sense of self, volunteerism and community work, civic engagement, education, and income and socioeconomic status. Alumnae with more than three years’ experience as a girl in Girl Scouts fared better than shorter-term alumnae regarding all of the above plus satisfaction with life, success, leadership, and relationship satisfaction.

Alumnae rate their experiences highly and consider Girl Scouts to have been positive and rewarding. They fondly remember positive aspects and experiences, and many reported it was in Girl Scouts that they first were introduced to the world outside of their immediate environment and exposed to those in need, and also in preparing them to face life's challenges and opportunities.
Program Success MonitoringHelpDescription of the tools used to measure or track program impact.
All Girl Scout programming is developed and assessed through the 5 Outcomes. Additional feedback from parents, volunteers, and Girl Scout staff are also taken into consideration when developing or assessing programming.
Examples of Program SuccessHelpSpecific examples of changes in behaviors or testimonies of changes that demonstrate program success. At a time when many Girl Scout councils around the nation are experiencing stagnant growth, Girl Scouts - Western Oklahoma has been recognized as one of the top councils for membership growth over the last three years. Girl Scouts - Western Oklahoma received the Doug Stussi Financial Stewardship Award from United Way of Central Oklahoma in January 2018. The award is given in recognition of a collaborative or innovative initiative, process or program developed or implemented by a not-for-profit that demonstrates excellent in financial stewardship. Girl Scouts was recognized for a Girls' Advocacy Summit to steward the future of Camp Cookieland. Girl Scouts – Western Oklahoma was recognized in March 2018 with a Community Impact Award from the Oklahoma Business Ethics Consortium for significant outreach efforts that serve to uplift the community, specifically by promoting strong principles, ethical leadership, and integrity.
Comments on Programs
CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

In 2008, Girl Scouts of the USA redefined the Girl Scout program as the Girl Scout Leadership Experience (GLSE) with Girl Scout "Journeys," an award-winning curriculum, becoming the foundation of the program. This program model allows for Girl Scouts to create a consistent, high-quality, and highly relevant program to all girls. In 2016, Girl Scouts simplified the national program model to tell a more succinct and consistent story about the impact of Girl Scouting on girls.

The 5 Girl Scout Outcomes are:

  • Sense of Self: Girls have confidence in themselves and their abilities, and form positive identities.
  • Positive Values: Girls act ethically, honestly, and responsibly, and show concern for others.
  • Challenge Seeking: Girls take appropriate risks, try things even if they might fail, and learn from mistakes.
  • Healthy Relationships: Girls develop and maintain healthy relationships by communicating their feelings directly and resolving conflicts constructively.
  • Community Problem Solving: Girls desire to contribute to the world in purposeful and meaningful ways, learn how to identify problems in the community, and create "action plans" to solve them.

The redefining of Girl Scouts was centered in a desire to maintain a relevant program model for today's girls and volunteers. Because girls face different challenges than those of their mothers and grandmothers, it is important that Girl Scouts remain girl centered and girl led while being accessible to any girl wishing to participate.

 Additionally, all volunteer-based nonprofits struggle with the changing face of volunteerism. As most adults are working outside the home more than ever, we must be able to meet the needs of those adults who want to participate in community service in order to continue to provide high-quality Girl Scout programming.

The flexibility of the Girl Scout program allows flexibility for girls and adults to participate in the way they chose. Girls and volunteers choose how, when, and where they want to participate. This model allows the organization to continue to serve girls in traditional Scouting and allows us to grow in new ways as well.

 Girl Scouts continues to work to meet the needs of Oklahoma' girls and provide them with quality activities that will provide the experiences and skills necessary to ensure their future success.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments
Because the council serves 39 counties in central and western Oklahoma, we strive to diversify our board of directors through board development selection criteria focused on geographic, ethnic, racial, and technical skill diversity. This effort results in several challenges, including how to leverage technology so board members outside the metro area can participate in board and committee meetings without travel.
