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

Description:
Girl Scouts provides comprehensive experiences that promote positive personal and social development including: community service, educational programming, and activities that give girls important life skills and address their interests. They explore many diverse topics such as STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math), outdoors and the environment, financial literacy, healthy living, art and culture, and more. The program is based on a model engaging girls in discovering themselves and their interests and talents, connecting with peers, mentors, and the community, and taking action to make the world a better place. The progressive nature of our leadership program allows girls to assume age-appropriate increased independence in planning, implementing, and evaluating their own activities.

Girl Scouting benefits all girls regardless of race, religion, or socio-economic background. Alumnae credit Girl Scouting with preparing them to face life’s challenges and opportunities with resourcefulness, ingenuity, and discipline. Many alumnae named teamwork among the most valuable skills gained in Girl Scouts, as well as having the opportunity to try new things and make mistakes in a supportive environment. An alumnae also noted the real benefits she received from the program:

“Girl Scouts helped me develop skills for working with others. Sharing, teamwork, caring about others and their strengths and weaknesses, looking at the big picture, caring about feelings: these have made me a good employee, a good boss, and, most importantly, a good parent.”
