(for additional information and resources)

The Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles Girl Advisory Bureau (GAB) is a dynamic group of Girl Scouts selected every 2 years from every level—Daisy to Ambassador—and from all over the Greater Los Angeles area.

We are currently seeking new members for the April 2019 – April 2021 term.

In order to be considered for the 2019-21 GAB term, please complete this application https://www.gsglavolunteerapps.org/gabapplication/ (which includes submitting a photo and video) by Friday, Feb. 1, 2019.**


GAB girls speak up and speak out, acting as the voice of more than 43,000 Girl Scouts, representing the council at media and civic events as well as in GSGLA publications, social media, and in marketing collateral.


Led by GSGLA communications, marketing, and program staff, the GAB program presents its members with opportunities to grow in the following areas: public speaking, confidence, leadership, media literacy, communication, marketing skills, and writing skills.Questions? Contact pr@girlscoutsla.org.

Our GSGLA Volunteer Conference on Aug. 17, 2019 is a prime opportunity for you to share what you do best.


For more details, see our flier or email VolunteerConference@girlscoutsla.org.

G.I.R.L. Fund gifts fuel Girl Scouts’ staying power in Greater Los Angeles. By making a yearly gift to the G.I.R.L. Fund, you’re helping GSGLA empower young women to become future leaders! GSGLA invests $467* (per girl, per year) to provide the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. Product sales, retail, and program fees bring in $418* (per girl, per year). That leaves a gap of $49 per girl. G.I.R.L. Fund gifts allow GSGLA to close this gap and provide the Girl Scout Leadership Experience to every girl. Plus, 100% of all donations stay within our council!
*Based on council’s operating budget to support 43,000 girls and 24,000 adult members.

Why is it important? Consistent giving allows GSGLA to confidently plan ahead for future initiatives for girls.

G.I.R.L. Fund donors get to choose where their money goes. And there are lots of incredible areas at GSGLA that need support! Give to the G.I.R.L. Fund and designate your gift to the area that is closest to your heart, like these!

As a thank you for gifts $25+, you receive the G.I.R.L. Fund patch — perfect for anyone who believes in EVERY G.I.R.L. (Go-Getter, Innovator, Risk Taker, Leader).

Click here for a quick questionnaire to help your service unit find out more about your Girl Scout Troop(s) to better serve you in the future!

It happens to the best troops even though 
we're all the Mary Poppins of leaders, right? 
Cliques, girls feeling left out, etc. 


Sometimes we need to bring our girls and parents together as a troop and remind ourselves of why we joined Girl Scouts in the first place, to learn to be a sister to every Girl Scout. Click here and here for fun ideas to try and break down those walls!
