Girl Scouts GCNWI AmeriCorps VISTA Project
VISTAs will help develop systems and policies that encourage the sustainability of Girl Scouts GCNWI's mission of serving ALL girls, while building girls of courage, confidence and character. Girl Scouts GCNWI needs assistance with serving underserved girls and families in the most vulnerable communities in Chicago IL. Girl Scouts GCNWI is more than just cookies! There are specialty education programs, that focus on healthy living, financial literacy (cookie program), and STEAM activities. We need your help! VISTAs will focus on capacity building needs for the Englewood V.O.A.I Hope Manor community troop for low-income youth and The Austin Girl Scouts community troop at the Gap Community Center. VISTAs will accomplish goals by focusing on veterans and military families and low-income youth experiencing poverty as beneficiaries through the families who live in Englewood, Austin, and Little Village. VISTAs will be hosted by Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago Northwest Indiana.
