Background Statement

Founded in 1912 by Juliette Gordon Low, Girl Scouts celebrated its centennial year in 2012. One of 112 councils nationwide, Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts was established in 2008 when three independent councils (Spar and Spindle, Patriots Trail and Southeastern Massachusetts) merged.

Since the merger, Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts has grown its girl membership to become the 11thlargest Girl Scout council in the United States, with 11% of the “market share” as compared with the national reach of 8%. In 2008 the council launched a targeted effort to diversify membership, which resulted in a 134% increase in Hispanic members. GSEM is committed to increasing girl interest and participation in STEM and healthy lifestyle choices.

Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts is a non-profit chartered chapter of Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA), the largest leadership development organization for girls in the world. 

Impact Statement

Top accomplishments from the past year:

1)  Expanded our mission delivery system to be more accommodating to today’s busy lifestyles, offering four ways for girls to become involved. Called Pathways these four methods ─ camp, events, series and troops ─ promote and provide the Girl Scout Leadership Experience.

2)  Strengthened the diversity of our membership to include a 10% increase in girls and adult volunteers from emerging populations.

3)  Selected as one of 17 councils nationwide to be a STEM Advocacy Champion by GSUSA to lead efforts at the local and state level to increase girls’ involvement in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Within the last year GSEM has provided more than 5,300 girls with general STEM programming.

4)  Provided more than $200,000 in financial assistance to allow 3,800 girls with financial need to participate in all that Girl Scouting has to offer, including Girl Scout membership, programs and summer camps.


Priority goals for the current year:

1)  Ensure sustainability by increasing girl membership and adult volunteer involvement, and providing a combination of training, leadership opportunities and acknowledgement that leads to long-term engagement.

2)  Diversify and augment revenue streams to decrease reliance on product sales.

3)  Deliver more programming focused on wellness that promotes healthy lifestyles and builds self-esteem.

4)  Continue to foster an environment of inclusion to make Girl Scouts accessible to all girls without regard to physical or intellectual abilities.


Needs Statement

FaB Factor: The FaB Factor program serves girls grades K-12 from 14 under-served communities in eastern Massachusetts. The FaB Factor was developed with a belief that with a targeted curriculum, consistent access to caring adults, and the implementation of the Girl Scout leadership model a measurable difference can be made in the lives of young girls.
This initiative provides free after-school programming from October to June and offers four learning modules focused on health/wellness, leadership development, finance/business and STEM.

Campership Fund: Each year GSEM receives applications from families for financial assistance for their girl to attend one of our 13 camps.  In FY13 more than 4,700 girls attended a Girl Scout camp. GSEM provided financial assistance totaling more than $138,000 to more than 450 girls whose families could not fully pay for a summer camp experience. 

S.H.A.R.E. Annual Fund: Donations to the annual fund “Support Her Activities, Resources and Experiences (S.H.A.R.E.),” fund programs, training and services for the 35,000 girls we serve and the 15,000 adult volunteers who help us deliver programming to girls.  The cost to provide programming to each girl is $315 annually and donations help to bridge the gap between fees charged and actual program costs.  S.H.A.R.E. subsidizes program fees to keep them cost-effective, fund on-going program and safety training for volunteers, ensure our camp properties are safe and well maintained, and provide financial assistance to girls.


CEO Statement

As the largest girl serving organization in Massachusetts with one of every seven girls participating in Girl Scouts, Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts serves more than 35,000 girls in 178 cities and towns in eastern Massachusetts. We provide a powerful leadership experience, helping girls develop the tools of courage, confidence and character to build meaningful lives.

Our more than 15,000 dedicated volunteers are outstanding role models and sources of support and encouragement for girls, setting examples through community service and helping to make the world a better place.  Our leadership development programs are transforming the lives of girls every day.   Through exciting girl-led programs and community volunteerism, girls are discovering who they are and how to reach their full potential.  They are connecting with others who come from diverse backgrounds and experiences and together they are taking action to make the world a better place. Whether it’s innovative programming in science, technology or the environment, whether it’s camping, financial literacy, creative arts, or career exploration … Girl Scouts makes a difference!

Our commitment is that Girl Scouting be accessible and affordable for all girls. In order to keep our membership and program fees low, we need the support of individuals, foundations and corporations to invest in these girls and in their futures. Over 82% of every dollar we raise goes directly to girl programs and activities. We provide financial assistance so all girls can be part of Girl Scouting.  

We are moving at the speed of girls – fast-forward – to build the next generation of women leaders.   With your help, we can make this happen.


Board Chair Statement

The work of the Board of Directors for the coming year will emphasize innovation and continuous improvement, while maintaining a sharp focus on our girls. The key organizational imperatives that shape the current strategic plan are:

 ·       Keep our focus on girls to ensure that every program, activity, and strategic decision is enacted in the best interests of girls and their development.

 ·       Emphasize our culture of inclusion to ensure that Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts demonstrates respect and openness at all times to all of our staff, volunteers, girls, donors and others with whom we interact.

 ·       Maximize awareness of the Girl Scout organization in order to increase membership, re-engage alumnae, and gain financial support.      
       

The Board is committed to working with our professional staff and dedicated volunteers to deliver the National Girl Scout Program Portfolio to girls, to strengthen and enhance our volunteers’ experience, and to engage community partners and supporters in our mission of building girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place.  

Sincerely,

Elizabeth Stevenson
President, Board of Directors

  • 85% of girls developed a strong sense of self
  • 88% of girls gained practical life skills
  • 81% of girls developed healthy relationships
  • 92% of girls developed skills in cooperation and team building

FaB Factor

Developed by Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts (GSEM) in 2010, FaB Factor is an early intervention, research-based program for 2,500 girls grades K-12. The after school program provides girls from 14 predetermined target communities with the opportunity to build self-esteem, leadership development skills and self-sufficiency abilities through educational and social developmental opportunities. GSEM is aware that girls living in under-served communities face obstacles including violence, poverty and lack of opportunities. FaB Factor addresses these issues by providing quality, adult-led programming that enables girls to build resilience against the circumstances of their environment and gives them the necessary tools to take the positive steps to create a brighter future. 

 

Programming for the FaB Factor is provided from October to August and is divided into two programmatic sessions – academic year and summer. Typically, each site meets once per week for a maximum of two hours in low-income apartment complexes, youth centers and public/private schools. The FaB Factor staff members, called FaB Facilitators, utilize the teaching styles of learning by doing, cooperative learning and girl-led within four series: health and wellness, finance and business, STEM and leadership development.

  • Decrease aggressive incidents involving girls at partner sites
  • Increase the number of community supports and resources for girls

 

Program Long-Term Success 

The three long-term goals of the FaB Factor are to:

  1. Encourage and empower girls to graduate high school and pursue academic or professional careers;
  2. Develop a strong sense of self and the ability to make better decisions and positive choices; and
  3. Become positive contributors to their community.

girls building self-eSTeEM

Girl Scouts believes that early interest and exposure to STEM topics will increase awareness among girls and encourage them to pursue higher education and careers in these fields.  To address this need, GSEM created the “Girls Building Self-eSTeEM” initiative that will reach more than 5,000 girls this year with STEM related programs and events.

The programmatic component of this initiative provides girls currently enrolled in the FaB Factor with STEM programs. Incorporating STEM education into the lives of these girls will give them the skills they need to prepare them for emerging careers and enable them to develop new economic opportunities for themselves, their families and their communities. Girls learn how science, technology, engineering and mathematics affect everything around them. They participate in hands-on activities and Girl Scout Take Action community projects that improve their own and others’ health, and the health of the planet. The event component of this initiative provides all girls within the Council with the opportunity to participate in STEM-related events and workshops.  During the current programmatic year Girl Scouts will offer more than 20 STEM-related events for girls of all ages.

Impact

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results.
