Girl Scouts of Western New York Chief Operating Officer Alison Wilcox said in a recent interview that the Girl Scouts were aware the idea was on the table but the Boy Scouts council has not yet reached out to them.

These changes aren't necessarily new for the Boy scouts as they already offer a co-ed program for those aged 14-21 known as Venturing.

The Boy Scouts were long the target of progressive ire for refusing to change rules it followed for decades that prevented gay youths and leaders from joining the organization. Girls have different environmental and developmental needs, Wilcox said.
