About Us

Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast serves nearly 10,000 girls in southeastern Virginia and northeastern North Carolina. With the support and guidance of nearly 5,000 volunteers, girls develop leadership skills while discovering the importance of personal responsibility, the value of goal setting, and the spirit of teamwork. Through programs that include science, technology, financial literacy, health, the arts, outdoor and environmental awareness, girls gain practical life skills that empower them to make a difference in the world.
