Introduction to Girl Scouts Forever Green

Thank you for your interest in becoming an environmental mentor for girls participating in our Girl Scouts Forever Green!

The Girl Scout Council of the Nation's Capital is in our third year of this program which supports girl-led greening initiatives in girls' school communities. "Girl Scouts Forever Green" participants will advocate for greener schools and community areas. Girls will use their leadership skills to choose a project that implements some sort of sustainable, lasting change in their school. The possibilities are endless and include everything from installing energy-efficient light bulbs, to composting leftover lunch food, to creating a green space, and so much more! Learn more about possible projects here:

We would like each of the Forever Green projects to have an environmental mentor who is knowledgeable about the project's environmental focus area - that mentor could be YOU! All you need to do is be able to commit to is having at least two meetings with your Green Troop (in person or via conference call) and being available for questions and guidance (via email and/or phone) throughout the duration of the project. We are very flexible and willing to work with your schedules, so let us know your interest!

We are also excited to engage our environmental experts in programs and events scheduled throughout the year, so even if you can't be a long term mentor, we would definitely appreciate your attendance at one-time events!
