Founded in 2010, Gamma Sigma Girls® is a unique leadership
development program offered by Girl Scouts of Southwest Texas in
partnership with area school districts. It combines the proven
outcomes of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience with a
“sorority-type” setting, targeting teen girls in high school who have
a limited history of Girl Scouts in their family or the community.
Similar to a sorority, Gamma Sigma Girls® (GSG) will
bring girls together through the bond of sisterhood and allow them to
explore common interests in a safe space. Unlike other extracurricular
activities at school, GSG does not require members to have a special
talent, skill or minimum GPA.
You just have to be a girl. That’s it!
Gamma Sigma Girls® serves nearly 800 teens in
17 high schools and nearly 1,000 girls in 19 middle schools in San
Antonio ISD, Harlandale ISD, Southwest ISD, Edgewood ISD and Uvalde
ISD. In the tradition of sororities, Girl Scouts of Southwest Texas
introduces Gamma Sigma Pearls, which is a younger “sister chapter” of
Gamma Sigma Girls® named after a jewel significant to the
Girl Scout movement.
As Gamma Sigma Girls® and Gamma Sigma Pearls, teens will
choose to focus on one of three areas: advocacy, taking action, and
being college bound.
The nearly 1,800 new and returning members of Gamma Sigma
Girls® and Gamma Sigma Pearls were inducted at formal
Investiture and Rededication ceremonies at the beginning of the school year.
