Welcome to GSCI Theme

Alumnae

Since 1912, millions of women have had their lives positively influenced, sometimes even transformed, by their Girl Scout experience. Through the Girl Scouts of Central Illinois Alumnae Association, you will have an opportunity to reconnect with the organization that helped shape you into the woman you are today. 

Whether you want to find lost friends, make new connections in your community, share your Girl Scout memories, or make a difference in the lives of girls, the GSCI Alumnae Association welcomes you. If you were ever a girl member, staff member, or volunteer, whether in one of the 38 counties served by Girl Scouts of Central Illinois or a council hundreds of miles away, we invite you to join the GSCI Alumnae Association to reconnect with the sisterhood of Girl Scouts.

Join today!

If you have questions about the GSCI Alumnae Association, please contact Kate Peters at kpeters@girlscouts-gsci.org.
