For more than 100 years, girls have explored new fields of knowledge, learned valuable skills, and developed strong core values through Girl Scouts. Today Girl Scouts is, as it always has been, the organization best positioned to help girls develop essential leadership skills they need to become successful adults.

Our comprehensive program, the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, offers a variety of age-appropriate, girl-led activities that are cooperative and hands-on, preparing girls to take on challenges big and small in their lives. Guided by supportive adult volunteers, girls practice everyday leadership as they earn badges, go on exciting trips, explore the outdoors, participate in STEM activities, and more. Girls learn and grow in a safe, all-girl environment, which helps them discover themselves and their values, try new things and take healthy risks, connect with others to create positive relationships, and take action in their communities on issues they are passionate about.
