The ACE Girl Scouts Program invites Siena College students to engage girls from the North Albany Academy Community by partnering with the school as well as the Girl Scout Council of Northeastern New York. The Siena-student led Girl Scout Program is the only one of its kind in the nation as well as one of the largest troops with over 80 girls committed to weekly meetings.
The Siena-North Albany Girl Scout Troop is a unique and exciting new kind of scouting experience. As the only Girl Scout troop run solely by college students, Troop 1430 is comprised of more than 75 girls from North Albany Academy, making it also one of the largest troops in the nation, with five different age levels - Daisies, Brownies, Juniors, Cadettes, and a mixed Senior/Ambassador group.
Through partnerships with the Siena Collge Academic Community Engagement Office, the Girl Scout Council of Northeastern New York, and North Albany Academy, leaders work to provide fun and exciting activities for the girls that spark their imagination and creativity. At weekly meetings, the girls work through Girl Scout Journeys and gain skills to better get along with their friends and classmates, while also gaining the skills to become strong, independent, and creative thinkers in their community.
