In such an unprecedented time, girls need to stay active with entraining programs and continue to make valuable connections more than ever.

At Girl Scouts, your girl will learn to step outside of her comfort zone and gain confidence in herself while helping others and having fun. How? Through the Girl Scout Leadership Experience—a collection of engaging, challenging, and fun activities like earning badges, going on awesome trips, selling cookies, exploring science, getting outdoors, and doing community service projects. At Girl Scouts, she’ll get to lead her own adventure (it’s her world!) and team up with other girls in an all-girl environment to choose the exciting, hands-on activities that interest her most.

GSLE

All of our programs are designed with a research-backed curriculum that centers around fun and friendship. To create engaging experiences, we focus on four core program areas the sparks girls’ interests.

history

Our extraordinary journey began when our courageous founder Juliette Gordon “Daisy” Low began working to empower girls. On March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia, she organized the very first Girl Scout Troop, and every year since, we’ve honored her vision and legacy. When Juliette Gordon Low brought that first group of girls together, she wanted them to explore new possibilities and the wonders of the world around them—and she wanted them to do it together. Over the past century, that small circle of girls has grown to include millions of Girl Scout alumnae—united across distance and decades by lifelong friendships, shared adventures, and the desire to do big things to make the world a better place.

Girls in the United States are growing up in a period of rapid demographic, social, and economic change. This state of constant change increases the challenges girls face to their health, happiness, and opportunities for success. Now more than ever, girls need Girl Scouts.

Research from the Girl Scout Research Institute (GSRI) provides compelling evidence that Girl Scouts fare better than non–Girl Scouts on a number of key measures of life success. Girls who are Girl Scouts – as well as women who were Girl Scouts for three or more years as girls – display more positive life outcomes with regard to education, financial stability (career and income), health, and leadership/civic engagement than their peers without experience as a Girl Scout.
