More Than Cookies: Girl Scout Troops are Forming Throughout Alabama this Fall
We know the Girl Scouts sell those delicious cookies but they are so much more than that. “Girls are exposed to so many opportunities in science or outdoors, animal medicine, robotics, or they can find their next favorite thing,” said the press release.
The Girl Scouts of North-Central Alabama (GSNCA) is forming troops throughout Tuscaloosa and the rest of North-Central Alabama this fall. Currently, GSNCA serves over 36 counties in North Central Alabama which includes 9,000 girl members ages 5-17 and 3,000 volunteers.

Why Girl Scouts?
“The Girl Scout program sets a precedent for girls’ futures by providing Girl Scouts with experiences and skills that set them up for success,” said Karen Peterlin, CEO of Girl Scouts of North-Central Alabama. “Girls are able to create new experiences through the outdoors, STEM activities, entrepreneurship, and life skills that set them up to become future leaders.”
