Who do you want the girl in your life to become? Whether she is 5 or 17, you want her to become self-confident, strong, and compassionate. You want her to respect herself and others, make good decisions, be open to new challenges, and use her skills and talents to make her world a better place. You want her to build strong friendships, be a leader, and put her values into practice in her everyday life.
You want her to become her best self.
Social pressure, image issues, and uncertain security — there are so many potential hurdles to girls’ well-being. For 100 years, Girl Scouts has been helping girls realize their full potential and everything that the Girl Scout Leadership Experience provides.
What Do Girl Scouts Do?
Girl Scouting provides girls with opportunities to address the important issues in their lives. Girl Scouts do almost anything girls like to do! Girl Scout activities are open to all girls who are members of Girl Scouting, are based on the Girl Scout Promise and Law, and the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, follow health and safety standards, and are done with the support of caring, trained adults.
Based on expert research and developed through years of experience, Girl Scouting provides engaging and worthwhile activities that respond to the needs of today’s girls, with flexibility that respects their busy lives — and yours!
