Girl Scouts Beyond Bars
Through Girl Scouts Beyond Bars, incarcerated mothers lead troop meetings and develop skills in leadership, conflict resolution and parenting, all of which are critical to their success in family life and employment after their release. The girls participate in traditional Girl Scout programming, which emphasizes leadership development. For mothers, the program stresses social well-being, positive behavior and self-esteem.
Women who have been infraction free, women with no histories of violence toward children.
Approximately 12-15 women at any given time, though the program has a relatively unlimited capacity.
