About Girl Scouts of Western Ohio
We serve more than 30,000 girls in a 32-county area throughout western Ohio and southeast Indiana, with the support of more than 11,000 dedicated volunteers. And we love every minute of it!
Girl Scouts bring their dreams to life and work together to build a better world. Through programs from coast to coast, Girl Scouts of all backgrounds and abilities can be unapologetically themselves as they discover their strengths and rise to meet new challenges—whether they want to climb to the top of a tree or the top of their class, lace up their boots for a hike or advocate for climate justice, or make their first best friends.
