Do you have the gift of gab?
The NEW Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles Girl Advisory Bureau (GAB) is a dynamic group of Girl Scouts from every level--Daisy to Ambassador--and from all over the greater Los Angeles area.
GAB girls speak up and speak out, acting as the voice of more than 40,000 Girl Scouts, representing the council at media and civic events. Plus, GAB members:
- have the honor and distinction of membership
- engage in leadership and media workshops
- share their ideas and stories with the council and the community
GAB membership commitments
GAB members must*:
- uphold the Girl Scout Promise and Law
- attend the annual GAB Member Orientation
- commit to attending at least four (4) GAB meetings a year**
- commit to a minimum term of two (2) years or until they age out of Girl Scouts, whichever comes first
*Additional assignments and field trips may be required for Junior to Ambassador members.
**Brownie and Daisy members are only required to attend the orientation and one media workshop
GAB is divided into two groups. In some instances, the groups will meet together; but they will also have separate meetings and opportunities as well.
Silver GAB Members
Girls enter GAB as Silver members for their first two-year term. Silver GAB Members take part in fun introductory media and speaking workshops and trainings.
Gold GAB Members
This is the second level of GAB. Girls who have already completed their two-year term as Silver GAB Members can choose to stay in GAB for an additional two years as Gold GAB Members. The Gold group will take part in fun intermediate/advanced workshops and opportunities. They will also serve as mentors for the Silver group by planning and leading some of the Silver workshops.
Gabbing with Girl Scouts
GAB members are selected every two years by a committee of Girl Scout staff, Girl Scout volunteers, and media professionals. The next application round for the 2015-17 term is happening... now! The deadline to turn in the application is Jan. 11, 2015. The program will start in April 2015 and go through April 2017. Girls will be notified the week of Feb. 16, 2015.
There are two steps to applying for the 2015-17 GAB term: (1) Complete an online application for either Silver or Gold GAB membership. (2) Submit a video and headshot to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications and instructions are below.
