Why Girl Scouts

Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place. That’s an easy mission to buy into and support. For more than 100 years Girl Scouting has been an important part of leadership development for girls. In Girl Scouts, leadership isn’t just about building future leaders; it’s about building girl leaders for today. Girls 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 and taking action to make the world a better place.

Our Parent Guide will answer your questions about Girl Scouting, volunteering and what to expect when your girl joins Girl Scouts.

This model includes 15 anticipated outcomes, or benefits, of the leadership experience. Tying the experience to outcomes serves three vital functions: to measure the impact of the experience; to determine what modifications are needed; and to communicate, to internal and external audience, how girls benefit.

We need many adults to help our council and our Girl Scouts to reach their full leadership potential. Click here to see the 15 outcomes.
