Every time you keep your thoughts to yourself, a girl's voice is lost. Our future is a little bit smaller every time you choose not to lead. You can make a difference.

Join Girl Scouts Spirit of Nebraska at our first annual Y WE3 LEAD forum. Connect with today's leaders and unlock your own potential. Seniors and Ambassadors, make plans for "Y WE3 LEAD" on
August 13, 2011, at UNO's Mammal Hall. For more information, contact Erin Huerter

Help us Celebrate

100 Years of Girl Scouting




We are making plans to commemorate 100 years of Girl Scouting in the USA! Committees are being formed, ideas are being hatched and we are asking you, our Girl Scout members, to volunteer for this milestone celebration.

How can you get involved??  Please participate as a team member on one of our three steering committees: TROOP, COMMUNITY/SERVICE UNIT or STATEWIDE.  There will be something for everyone to do and you will be part of the team setting the direction for the next 18 months of events, programs, activities, promotion, public relations, service projects, fund development and MORE! 


Call 877.447.5558 x201 or email and let Tina know how you want to participate.  It will be the work of many that will culminate into this once-in-a-lifetime celebration!  Thank you.

Encourage your girls to learn life skills such as goal setting, money management and business ethics by participating in the 2011 Fall Product Program! Girls will discover how "Investing in Today" will lead to their "Success for Tomorrow" through enriching program activities. In addition, girls will earn fabulous cumulative recognition items and troops can earn significant start-up funds! The Fall Product Program is designed to be simple and flexible, allowing each girl to choose how she wants to participate.

Troop Leaders and/or Fall Product Managers should complete the 2011 Fall Product Program Intent Form available here. Submit to your nearest service center by August 31, or as soon as your troop is formed.
