Girl Member-at-Large on the Board of Directors

Be a G.I.R.L. and become a part of the Girl Scouts of Western Ohio’s Board of Directors to help shape the future of our council!

Each year, Girl Scouts of Western Ohio accepts applications for two Girl Scout Seniors and Ambassadors to serve as members on the Board of Directors for a one-year appointment.

In this position, girls will join the board for regular meetings and participate in discussions and decisions to benefit the entire council.  The selected members will have the opportunity to give input and participate in discussions about issues that the board is facing!

Girls who are selected will also:

  • Be paired with a mentor from the Board of Directors. This mentor will meet with you at least twice, in person, to help you learn and practice your leadership and professionalism skills.
  • Receive a full scholarship to one of the two Leadership Conferences. The girls will attend as board representatives and educate the participants on what the board does and has been working on.

Girls will get the opportunity to see some of the work that goes on behind the scenes at Girl Scouts, meet and work alongside board members and make an impact on Girl Scout policies, decisions and opportunities in the future.

Girls must be able to attend all GSWO Board meetings during their appointment.  In-person meetings take place at the Dayton Girl Scout office, 450 Shoup Mill Road. We can help arrange transportation for girls if necessary!

Applications are currently closed. Check back in the fall for applications for 2022!
