Mission: To build girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place.
GSHNJ serves girls in Hudson, Union, Somerset, Essex. Hunterdon, and parts of Middlesex and Warren Counties. 25,000 girls and 11,000 adult members enjoy programs in Central New Jersey that build the women leaders of tomorrow.
Programs: Gshnj programs provide opportunities for girls to make positive choices, learn healthy behaviors, develop leadership and teamwork, and increase skills and self-confidence. Gshnj provides educational and recreational program opportunities in order to develop leadership skills and self awareness through interaction with girls their own age, participate in educationally sound programs under trained leadership, and help them prepare for their future through career exploration, community service and skill building.
Girl Scouts is more than cookies. They focus on developing leadership skills in girls. Recently i had the opportunity to meet with some girls at the GSHNJ camp to hear a presentation about the camp. Here were two girls ages 9 and 11 speaking to a group of adults with the poise rarely seen in adults. The is a great organization.
Professional with expertise in this field
Girl Scouts Heart of New Jersey (GSHNJ) is one of the premiere organizations for young women in our community (GSHNJ supports Hudson, Essex, Union, Somerset, Hunterdon and parts of Middlesex and Warren Counties). I have attended a number of centennial Council events, including a butterfly release and the B.I.G. concert. I have never been surrounded by so many helpful volunteers and staff! Each event ran smoothly and helped an excellent cause!
