GIRL SCOUTS Grades K-12 Contact: Jackie Ayala Email: Phone: 512-766-4522

Sponsor: Jewish Community Center Girl Scouts seeks to build girls of courage, confidence and character who strive to make the world a better place. Scouting helps to encourage girls to discover new life experiences and leadership skills, while boosting their individual self-esteem and fostering a love of Judaism. Trained leaders provide quality, fun activities that emphasize enjoyment of traditional scouting activities with commitment to maintaining core Jewish values through the mitzvah of Tzedakah and Tikkun Olam. The girls also have an opportunity to earn various National Jewish Scouting Awards. We are recruiting both girls and adult volunteers to continue to grow the group. Pick up from Kids Connection is  available. Annual registration is $25. To register please visit or contact Jackie Ayala at or 512-766-4522.

Scouts at every age are supported to:
- Pursue traditional Scout badges, awards and ranks
- Earn the religious award for each level from the National Jewish Committee on Scouting
- Host and attend Scout Shabbat
- Observe shabbat, bake challah over a campfire, and keep kosher on campouts
- Build a sukkah and provide games for the community at Sukkahfest
- Hold troop fundraisers for the charity of their choice
- Perform service projects for the Jewish community, such as handmade mezuzot for JFS and painted plot markers for the community garden. These can also serve as b’nai mitzvah projects and as school leader projects as well.
