Why Girl Scouts
For more than 100 years, Girl Scouts has been building girls of
courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place.
Girl Scouts unleashes the G.I.R.L.
(Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ in every girl,
preparing her for a lifetime of leadership.
The Girl Scout Leadership Experience is our one-of-a-kind leadership development program for girls, with proven results. Based on time-tested methods and research-backed programming, it helps girls take the lead—in their own lives and in the world.
Research shows that girls learn best in an all-girl, girl-led, and girl-friendly environment. That's the Girl Scout difference. Girl Scouts is a place where she’ll practice different skills, explore her potential, take on leadership positions—and even feel allowed to fail, dust herself off, get up, and try again. Girl Scouts is proven to help girls thrive in five key ways as they:
- Develop a strong sense of self
- Seek challenges and learn from setbacks.
- Display positive values.
- Form and maintain healthy relationships.
- Identify and solve problems in the community.
