Setting a strong early foundation for girls' future life and career success
Girl Scouts of Western New York is releasing a host of new programs just in time for the fall and back to school season. With a new series of programs in cybersecurity, eco-camping, robotics, college prep and space science, there is no shortage of all-girl, girl-led adventures for girls in the fall.
This fall, girls in Western New York will be introduced to the first-ever national Palo Alto Network Cybersecurity badges for Girl Scouts in grades K-12. These exclusive badges encourage girls to become the experts who can meet future cybersecurity challenges.
The 18 badges will introduce cybersecurity education to hundreds of girls across Western New York through compelling programming designed to increase their interest and instill in them a valuable 21st century skillset. This national effort is a step toward eliminating traditional barriers to industry access, such as gender and geography, and will target girls as young as 5 years old, ensuring that even the youngest girls have a foundation primed for future life and career success.
At Girl Scouts, girls prepare for a lifetime of leadership, success, and adventure in a safe, no-limits place designed for and by girls. The Girl Scout Leadership Experience offers a collection of engaging, challenging and enjoyable activities such as earning badges, going on trips, running a cookie business, exploring science, getting outdoors, and doing community service projects.
For more information on all the new programs, or to join as a girl member or adult volunteer, visit gswny.org or call 1.888.837.6410. 
Girl Scouts of Western New York serves nearly 15,000 girls and 7,000 adult volunteers across the GSWNY jurisdiction, including Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie, Genesee, Livingston, Monroe, Niagara, Orleans and Wyoming counties. The council's administrative service centers are located in Batavia, Buffalo, Jamestown, Lockport, Niagara Falls and Rochester.
