Who We Are

We Are Girl Scouts.

Girl Scouts bring their dreams to life and work together to build a better world.

Through programs from coast to coast, Girl Scouts of all backgrounds and abilities can be unapologetically themselves as they discover their strengths and rise to meet new challenges—whether they want to climb to the top of a tree or the top of their class, lace up their boots for a hike or advocate for climate justice, or make their first best friends.

Backed by trusted adult volunteers, mentors, and millions of alums, Girl Scouts lead the way as they find their voices and make changes that affect the issues most important to them. 

Our Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Accessibility (IDEA) Statement

Girl Scouts San Diego is committed to fostering and cultivating inclusive, equitable and culturally conscious experiences. We strive for members, volunteers, staff, and diverse communities to see themselves represented, feel welcome, and have a sense of belonging and support. We seek partnerships that support this position and help us realize this commitment across our council.

As a council, we are dedicated to understanding similarities and differences, building equity and relationships, dismantling inequities, and promoting a dialogue of acceptance and respect through Girl Scouts. 

We recognize the need for continual growth and are modeling behaviors for our Girl Scouts by engaging in learning opportunities and taking action to improve. While this is not fast or easy, we will continue to live by the Girl Scout Promise and Law and learn alongside our community.

Our Mission

Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.

Girl Scout Promise 

On my honor, I will try:
    To serve God* and my country,
    To help people at all times, 
    And to live by the Girl Scout Law.

* Members may substitute for the word God in accordance with their own spiritual beliefs.

Girl Scout Law

I will do my best to be
    honest and fair,
    friendly and helpful,
    considerate and caring, 
    courageous and strong, and
    responsible for what I say and do, 
and to 
    respect myself and others, 
    respect authority,
    use resources wisely,
    make the world a better place, and 
    be a sister to every Girl Scout.
