Our Council

Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas inspires girls everywhere to stand up and make a difference. By nurturing innovation and developing leadership skills, we prepare girls to overcome challenges and advocate for their ideas now and later. With an emphasis on self-discovery, character building and community impact, Girl Scouts helps girls become a powerful force for good in the world.  

We’re the Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas and we’re more than 26,000 girls and 12,500 adult members strong. That’s nearly 40,000 girls and adults who believe every girl can change the world!

Statement of Inclusivity

Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas is proud to be part of an organization that has a 100 year+ history of being welcoming and inclusive.  Our policies of inclusion align with those of our national organization, Girl Scouts of the USA.  We value diversity and inclusivity and do not discriminate or recruit on the basis of race, color, religion, ethnicity, national origin, citizenship, age, genetic information, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, socioeconomic status, physical or developmental ability, nor any other category protected by applicable state, federal or local law.  Through our programming, the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, girls develop skills to advance diversity and promote tolerance in the twenty-first century.  We are committed to understanding similarities and differences, building relationships and promoting a dialogue of acceptance and respect.  Each individual involved must uphold the tenant that Girl Scouting is for all girls.
