Lead Like a G.I.R.L.

Girl Scouts are groundbreakers, big thinkers and role models. Girl Scouts design robots, start garage bands, and improve their communities — oh yeah, and they sell the best cookies on the planet.

A Girl Scout is also a G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™.

These traits define girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place. This is the Girl Scout DNA.

She’s bold, honest and determined to succeed. A goal-oriented lifelong learner, she fully believes no challenge is too difficult.


Thinking outside the box is her specialty, so she’s always looking for a creative way to take action. She definitely knows how to get things done.


Courageous and strong, she’s keen to try new things and to embrace the unfamiliar. She’s ready to step up and break the mold if that’s what it takes.


She’s confident, responsible and committed to changing the world for the better — and she’s excited when others join her in taking the lead! 

Are you ready to take the lead like a G.I.R.L.?


Raise your voice and sing along:
The new Girl Scout anthem is here.

Our powerful new anthem, “Watch Me Shine,” explores how Girl Scouts find the strength and confidence to lead the way, every day — and create meaningful change in themselves and in their communities. Written by Grammy Award-winner Liz Rose and performer Emily Shackelton (both Girl Scouts themselves!), the tune also features Girl Scouts on backup vocals.
