USA Girl Scouts - Kuwait

Overseas Committee Page


The Overseas Committee is the governing body for USA Girl Scouts in Kuwait. Due to the size of our OC here in Kuwait, it functions much like a "service unit" would in the U.S. The committee is run by a chairman who asks for volunteers and/or appoints other officers with the approval of the committee. The committee officers vary according to the needs of the OC and the availability and talents of the volunteers. The OC meets monthly to make plans for joint events for troops, training, business functions (generally with the main office of USA Girl Scouts Overseas, a division of GSUSA, in New York), discuss problems, and to make plans for the future of Girl Scouting in Kuwait. If you'd like to attend the OC meeting please contact the OC Chair

The OC also has Troop Leader meetings once each month for training and to disseminate information about joint events, policies, awards orders, etc. Each troop is expected to send a leader, assistant or other representative to these meetings.
