What is the Faith-Based Programs Coordinator?

“Faith-Based Programs Coordinator” is a position description created by the National Interfaith Committee for Girl Scouting to better integrate Religious Recognitions into the Girl Scout program because “the motivating force in Girl Scouting is a spiritual one.”

Religious Recognitions help girls connect Girl Scouting with their faith and also help strengthen the connection between Girl Scouting and the faith communities. Councils are encouraged to promote the “Faith-Based Programs Coordinator” position to increase the number of girls participating in these programs.
