Girl Scouts – Diamonds Council is divided into 50 geographic areas known as Service Units. These areas are managed and staffed by volunteers and have three primary functions:
- To deliver and extend the Girl Scout program to all girls grades K – 12 in all socioeconomic, religious and ethnic groups within the jurisdiction.
- To give ongoing support to adults who work with girls.
- To offer and promote opportunities for troops in the Service Unit.
Service Unit Meetings
Service Unit team members and troop representatives meet several times throughout the year to share ideas, receive training, and talk about important announcements. Service Units may organize events such as community-wide service projects, summer day camps, family events, Cookie Rallies, World Thinking Day celebrations and Award ceremonies.
Most Service Areas meet monthly during the school year and all Troop Leaders are encouraged to attend. If a Troop Leader cannot attend, a member of the Troop Committee should attend.
During meetings, Troop Leaders may network, give input about Service Area program opportunities for troops, receive information from council staff and receive pre-ordered items from the council shops.
Participate in the Stellar Service Unit Challenge (in each year's Field Guide) to secure some extra cash for your service unit. The challenge runs from August 1-July 31 of the membership year and is due on August 15. See the form for details.
