All About Girl Scouts

As we begin our second century of Girl Scouting, it is important to understand the history that brought us where we are today, but also to recognize that we are still relevant for today's girls. Through Girl Scouting, girls participate in activities that build self-confidence, creative decision-making, and teamwork -- and develop real-world leadership abilities that last a lifetime. Girl Scouts is, as it always has been, the organization best positioned to offer girls the tools they need to be successful leaders now and throughout their lives. The Girl Scout Leadership Experience engages girls in:

  • Discovering themselves
  • Connecting with others
  • Taking action to make their communities and world a better place

These three leadership keys are incorporated into the girl-led activities where girls learn by doing in a cooperative setting that is fun and safe.

Through a myriad of engaging and exciting experiences -- such as extraordinary trips, sports skill-building clinics, community service projects, cultural exchanges, and environmental stewardships -- girls grow courageous and strong and develop to their fullest potential.
