Mission Statement

Girl Scouts builds girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place.


Girl Scouts Heart of New Jersey (GSHNJ) believes in the power of every girl. Our leadership program is designed to help a girl discover who she is, what she can do, and connects her with a powerful community of girls and mentors to make it happen. With unique opportunities, Girl Scouts explore, learn, succeed and take action to make a difference in their community.

Girl Scouts Heart of New Jersey serves 18,000 girls and 8,000 adults throughout Essex, Hudson, Hunterdon, Somerset, Union, southern Warren, and parts of Middlesex counties. Girl Scouting is open to all girls ages 5-17 regardless of race, creed, nationality or socio-economic status.

At Girl Scouts, we strive to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. Being a Girl Scout volunteer is a very rewarding experience. You get to help provide unforgettable and life-changing experiences to girls while teaching them a variety of life skills that will help them be successful in the future. You’re a role model, leader, friend, mentor, and teacher all in one. We couldn’t do any of that if it wasn’t for our hard-working volunteers. That means YOU!

I have been a leader with the Heart of New Jersey for the past 2 years. I have seen many girls grow in many ways I would have never imagined. Plus our troop is multi-leveled and all of our girls work really well together and assist with many tasks reguardless of age or level.
