100_8528Our Mission

Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.


The Girl Scout Promise

On my honor, I will try:
To serve God and my country,
To help people at all times,
And to live by the Girl Scout Law.

IMG_0956The Girl Scout Law

I will do my best to be
honest and fair,
friendly and helpful,
considerate and caring,
courageous and strong, and
responsible for what I say and do,
and to
respect myself and others,
respect authority,
use resources wisely,
make the world a better place,
and be a sister to every
Girl Scout.

Girl Scouts of Ohio’s Heartland Council exists to meet the needs of every girl in a one of a kind, girl-centric and girl-driven environment. Here girls find courage to explore new adventures, confidence in their uniqueness, character to stand by their values, and create lifelong connections to peers and mentors. As they develop their leadership skills, Girl Scouts learn to pay it forward by becoming the next generation of women leaders, who serve and reinvest in their communities.

Girl Scouts of Ohio’s Heartland Council serves the girls and adult volunteers in 30 counties: Adams, Ashland, Coshocton, Crawford, Delaware, Fairfield, Fayette, Franklin, Gallia, Guernsey, Highland, Hocking, Holmes, Jackson, Knox, Licking, Madison, Marion, Morrow, Muskingum, Perry, Pickaway, Pike, Richland, Ross, Scioto, Union, Vinton, Wayne and Wyandot.
