Building Girls of Courage, Confidence and Character
Girl Scouts-Arizona Cactus-Pine Council (GSACPC) has been serving K-12 girls in central and northern Arizona since 1936. Despite being an organization steeped in tradition, the Girl Scout movement is more relevant than ever before. The innovative Girl Scout programming of today includes four national focus areas of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), entrepreneurship; life skills, and outdoor experiences. Great lengths are made to guarantee that no girl is turned away from Girl Scouting because of financial barriers, and GSACPC is dedicated to ensuring all girls have the opportunity to benefit from the Girl Scout Leadership Experience.
T.W. Lewis Foundation Support
T.W. Lewis Foundation is sponsoring a Challenge Grant to help increase the number of Girl Scouts in Arizona. By sponsoring "staff led" troops and "camperships", the goal is to share Girl Scout's empowering message and skills to the girls most in need (including foster children).

"The way Girl Scouts impacted my life is because it gives me a chance to visit my mom in Perryville with the Girl Scouts Beyond Bars program. I've been in Girl Scouts for five years now. And it's just a great experience to get to know new people and it teaches me new skills." - Arica, Grade 6
"I've been in Girl Scouts for seven years. When I grow up I want to be President. Girl Scouts has helped me to be a good leader and to be kind to anyone and to give everyone a chance. Girl Scouts has also taught me to be courageous and strong which means that no matter what anyone says, stay truthful to what you think and know is right." - Viviana, Grade 6
