Our Program

At Girl Scouts, your girl will unleash her inner G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™!

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 and team up with other girls in an all-girl environment to choose the exciting, hands-on activities that interest her most. Along the way, she’ll gain important skills in four areas that form the foundation of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience:

  • Science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM)
  • Outdoors
  • Life Skills
  • Entrepreneurship

The Result? A Lifetime of Leadership!

In fact, being a Girl Scout helps girls thrive in five key ways. As a Girl Scout, she:

• Develops a strong sense of self
• Displays positive values
• Seeks challenges and learns from setbacks
• Forms and maintains healthy relationships
• Learns to identify and solve problems in her community

Delivering Fun with Purpose

To bring the Girl Scout Leadership Experience to life, activities are led by girls themselves, feature cooperative learning, and highlight learning by doing. Girls come up with their own ideas, build teams, and experience the joy of making a positive impact. At Girl Scouts, she will:


Find out who she is, what she cares about, and what her talents are.



Collaborate with other people, both locally and globally, to learn from others and expand her horizons.


Take Action.
Do something to make the world a better place.

The Girl Scout Leadership Experience has five outcomes:


Sense of Self: Girls have confidence in themselves and their abilities, and form positive identities.


Positive Values: Girls act ethically, honestly, and responsibly, and show concern for others.


Challenge Seeking: Girls take appropriate risks, try things even if they might fail, and learn from mistakes.


Healthy Relationships: Girls develop and maintain healthy relationships by communicating their feelings directly and resolving conflicts constructively.


Community Problem Solving: Girls desire to contribute to the world in purposeful and meaningful ways, learn how to identify community problems, and create "action plans" to solve them.

In Girl Scouts, you’ll do more than you ever thought you could, dream bigger dreams than you ever imagined, and – oh, yeah – change the world. Bet you didn’t think rock climbing or selling cookies would help you do all that, did you?
