The Mission Rafael Girl Scout Service Unit is San Rafael, California's local organization for Girl Scouting. As one of 34 service units in the San Francisco Bay Area, Mission Rafael provides many Girl Scouts and volunteers with an active program and support system.
Income for our Service Unit comes from fund raising projects (events, fall product & cookie sales, etc.) and Friends of Girl Scouting (FOGS). Expenses include printed handouts, recognitions, Service Unit supplies, special projects, events and camperships.
The purpose of the Mission Rafael Service Unit is to provide or manage the following:
Materials: The Service Unit Resource Box (formerly called "The Black Box") includes books, videos, supplies and other resources available to all troops on a loan basis. A list of items available in the Resource Box may be borrowed by contacting the ACT representative.
SUT: The Service Unit team (SUT), previously called the Association Coordinating Team (ACT) develops a yearly calendar of Mission Rafael leader meetings and events, provides training, sponsors events, and communicates on all other Service Unit support services for adult volunteers. The SUT meets on a monthly basis and is open to all interested adults who wish to attend. Meeting times, dates and locations can be found here.
Events: Special program events are opportunities for girls and adults in San Rafael to meet for planned functions such as roller skating, parties, dances, Thinking Day events, sing-alongs, recognition events, Camporee and others. Sign-ups are done through Mission Rafael. Event information and fliers can be found here.
