Throughout the nation, Girl Scouts has 111 regional councils—we’re 2.7 million girl members strong—and last year, Girl Scouts Heart of the South (GSHS) served more than 6,000 girls, with the help of nearly 2,000 volunteers, who live by the Girl Scout Promise and Law.
We serve 59 counties in north Mississippi, west Tennessee and Crittenden County, Arkansas, and maintain three camps and three regional leadership centers. The council’s headquarters is located in Memphis, Tennessee at 717 S. White Station Road.
In addition to supporting and providing resources for the full complement of Girl Scout experiences such as badge earning opportunities and Girl Scout Journeys, Girl Scouts Heart of the South offers year-round program activities that enhance girls' learning and Girl Scout adventures.
Girl Scouts Heart of the South is proud to be the creators of the National Stand Beside Her Movement - a call to action for women and girls to end the comparison, competition and criticism that undermines female relationships. Together we can propel each other forward by creating an inclusive culture of support, compassion and celebration of each other's success.
Each year during National Stand Beside Her Week (the last week in October), participating organizations encourage others to commit to supporting girls and women in their lives, their home, their office and in their community.
In addition to participating in meaningful and unique initiatives like Stand Beside Her, GSHS also offers girls of all ages the opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors through our robust camp and equestrian programs and gives girls the opportunity to explore their world through our Girl Scouts GO! yearly travel program.
