The Girls’ Friendly Society of the United States of America is an international, not-for-profit organization affiliated with the Episcopal Church for girls and young women.
Our focus is to provide a support system aimed at developing the whole person through a program of worship, service to others, study, and recreation designed to empower girls and to help them grow mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually.
Girls are expected to actively participate in GFS activities including worship and service. Girls will learn the GFS prayer and GFS motto, and understand and agree to live by the promises they made at their Admissions Service. The GFS motto is “bear ye one another’s burdens and so fulfill the law of Christ.” (Galatians 6.2)
