P.A.V.E. the WayThe corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) continues to be a major partner to Girl Scouts.

In FY2007, Girl Scouts of the USA received a $154,000 grant from CNCS to support the revamping of the volunteer management system. Four councils received sub-grants to pilot the Single Entry System for volunteers.

In 2000, GSUSA received a grant of $5 million to fund a comprehensive violence intervention initiative called P.A.V.E. the Way (Project Anti-Violence Education). Funding enabled councils to implement a variety of anti-violence projects across the country for thousands of girls. Projects focused on: conflict resolution training; inter-cultural understanding; anti-bullying campaigns; community service; and the arts.
