Girl Scouts Beyond Bars (GSBB) is a multi-level troop program for girls whose mothers are incarcerated at the Women’s Eastern Reception and Diagnostic Correctional Center in Vandalia, MO. The program has been in existence since 1996. We accept referrals for the program through the correctional facility, schools, DFS, and family members. See program flyer for additional details.
Troop 1500 is a documentary about a Girl Scouts Beyond Bars troop in Texas. Check out the trailer.
Do you know a child who has a family member who is incarcerated? PBS now has some Sesame Street® activities designed to help parents/caregivers make the transition easier for the child.
