Girl Scouts from Across the World Celebrated International Day of the Girl


It’s not just a day – it’s a Movement! On October 11, 2017, girls from across the world celebrated International Day of the Girl. A Movement that is 100% youth-led that fights for gender justice and youth rights. As the largest girl-led organization across central and eastern North Carolina, Girl Scouts supports girls on their path to make a difference as they channel their inner G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, and Leader) ™.

For over a century, Girl Scout has been the preeminent organization dedicated to helping all girls develop the confidence, determination, and skills needed to thrive in today's world. By providing girls K through 12 with a safe, girl-only environment where they can take the lead, develop innovated ideas, and do amazing thing every day.

International Day of the Girl brought Girl Scouts of different classes, races, and ethnicities together as they continue to inspire, challenge, and empower each other to take the lead while building their courage, confidence, and character.

From the very beginning of the organization, Girl Scouts ensured girls possessed the skills and traits needed to lead the world and make history on their own. Girl Scouts understands the vital connection between young girls’ development and their future success, and offers a leadership experience like no other. That’s why for the first time in almost a decade, Girl Scouts has rolled out over 20 new STEM and outdoor programs to breakdown gender barriers when it comes down to male-dominated fields.

As a Girl Scout, girls will get the Girl Scout Leadership Experience – a collection of activities and experiences girls have while they earn badges, sell cookies, go on exciting trips, explore the outdoors at one of four exciting camps, and do Take Action projects that make the world a better place.

Through Girl Scouting, girls learn to face challenges head-on, embrace failure as a learning opportunity, create lasting relationships, and find dynamic solutions to social issues—all while building the skills and courage they need to take the lead every day and empower themselves for life.
