Careers & Culture
When you work for Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes (GSNWGL), you are given a unique opportunity to use your professional skills toward a worthwhile mission. The satisfaction of knowing that your contributions make a real difference in the lives of girls and their families in your own community brings true workplace enjoyment.
GSNWGL offers a generous benefit program. As a human service organization we recognize that our staff benefit from flexibility, generous paid time off, and the ability to occasionally work from home.
GSNWGL’s basic benefits for full-time staff include:
- Medical, dental, and vision plans
- Short-term disability
- Life insurance
- Employee assistance program
- 403(b) plan with matching dollars for employees who work for GSNWGL for over a year
Paid time off is also available for all GSNWGL staff working more than 20 hours per week, and our offices are closed on major holidays. Each summer we amend our hours to have half-day Fridays and we close our offices between Christmas Eve and New Year’s Day to allow staff to spend time with their families.
Girl Scouts is an organization with a solid history and a growing future. To work with GSNWGL means reaching your full potential in a dynamic and diverse environment. We value flexibility, teamwork, and a strong work ethic. With our large geography, we communicate in person and through phone, computer, and video conference technology.
Diversity & Inclusion
GSNWGL and GSUSA have a policy of inclusion and acceptance, which promotes diversity in all its categories. Diversity has been a core value of the organization since its founding in 1912. Girl Scouts of the USA and GSNWGL value diversity and inclusiveness and do not discriminate or recruit on the basis of race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, national origin, or physical, social, emotional, or developmental disability. Girl Scouts provides settings that enable us to serve girls in an emotionally and physically safe environment, allowing them to learn leadership skills and develop the confidence and character to serve as examples to their community.
