Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes

Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes (GSNWGL) formed in 2008, the result of a nationwide organizational realignment. Formerly six separate Councils now comprise GSNWGL, which partners with 5,000 volunteers, serves approximately 16,000 girls, and covers 58 counties across northern Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

Council Vision

We are a viable, visible, girl-centered organization responsive and appealing to our members, volunteers, and staff. We engage quality individuals to help us deliver relevant programs that offer a lasting, positive impact.

Report to the Community

Each year our organization makes an impact with girls and their families throughout Wisconsin and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. We could not do this without our many volunteers and donors. View our most recent Annual Report.
