About the organization

Girl Scouts is more than cookies, camps and crafts! Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas (GNEST), located in Dallas, Texas will expand your view as you experience 21st-century Girl Scouting focused on building girls of courage, confidence, and character through hands-on, skill building opportunities. At Girl Scouts, girls learn the skills, have the experiences, and cultivate the relationships that enable them to soar in life. The Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas VISTA program will build capacity in areas aligned with Girl Identity, Financial Literacy, STEM (science, technology, engineering and math, and Outdoor Leadership to prepare the next generation of female leaders. VISTA members will help reach more girls through recruitment and a new alternative delivery model, the Girl Scout Academy. GSNET serves 4,000+ low income girls that attend Title 1 schools in partnership with their local Dallas, Tyler and Longview ISD’s. These community partnerships deliver programming to girls.


VISTA Members will serve to strengthen the infrastructure within the Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas organization to reach more girls and provide innovative 21st-century programming designed to build female leaders of tomorrow. Members will establish new partnerships and opportunities for the financial literacy program, field trips, special events and community service projects. To ensure sustainable partnerships the VISTA members will develop reporting and tracking systems to document partnership commitments. Additionally, the members will work with partnering organizations to establish best practices for program reporting, attendance, and registration. Members will also have the opportunity to contribute to the development of K-12 program curriculum. With the creation of pre-surveys and post-surveys members will conduct audits of program quality and effectiveness.
