Our Leadership

When Juliette Gordon Low founded Girl Scouts in 1912, she understood that dedicated and dynamic leaders were vital to helping girls develop their full potential. Today, the Girl Scouts of Central & Southern NJ is led by the Chief Executive Officer, Board of Directors, volunteers and professional staff in nine New Jersey counties. With the support, vision, and commitment of these role models, girls have the opportunity to find—and become—leaders in their communities and the world.
