Girl Scouts Beyond Bars
Girl Scouts Beyond Bars provides girls an opportunity to visit their incarcerated mothers weekly to monthly and take part in mother/daughter Girl Scout troop meetings. Through the program, 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. In addition, girls and their mothers often have facilitated discussions about family life, violence and drug abuse prevention.
