  • Congratulations, Sylvia Acevedo!


    Have you heard the exciting news?

    After a nationwide search, the National Board of Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) named interim leader Sylvia Acevedo the permanent Chief Executive Officer (CEO)!

    From rocket scientist to CEO, Sylvia is an inspiring role model for girls. A lifelong Girl Scout, she held the title of interim CEO since June 2016. She is a persistent champion of girls' causes, and we know that with her leading the way the future is bright for Girl Scouts.

    Sylvia is a familiar face to GSEP! We were honored to host Sylvia, Kathy Hopinkah Hannan, GSUSA Board President, and CEOs and Board Chairs from more than 100 councils at the National Board Chair and CEO Retreat in Philadelphia last fall. Sylvia met some of GSEP's Girl Scouts and even helped a troop complete a STEM project.

    GSEP's CEO, Kim E. Fraites-Dow, was at GSUSA headquarters this week for the big announcement!

    Please join us in congratulating Sylvia, the ultimate G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader) on her new role as CEO of GSUSA.

  • Meet Our New Website


    We've got a shiny new website! The new and improved site has many features that will make it easier for you to find what you're looking for and learn about what's going on at GSEP.  

    Here are a few things you need to know about the site:

    • The website is part of GSEP's Customer Engagement Initiative (CEI). We're now on the same platform as other councils across the country and will have a consistent look and feel with the Girl Scout brand. 
    • It's way easier now to find the forms and documents you need. You can search by a word or phrase for specific forms, or browse using our form categories.
    • We've got a new calendar! Browse events by grade level and/or category (alumnae, badge earning, camp, etc). Event categories are also color coded and searchable.
    • The best is yet to come. We'll be adding awesome resources, like the Volunteer Toolkit, to the website soon. The Volunteer Toolkit (or VTK as the cool kids call it) is an online resource to help volunteers plan meetings, and it will help parents learn more about all the fun activities their girls are doing. 

    We hope you like the new website!
