Why Girl Scouts?

Get to know the best leadership experience in the world for girls.
  • Girls-only. Everything we do is girl-led and girl-focused and takes place in the safe space of an all-girl environment.
  • Inclusive. We welcome girls of all backgrounds and interests who want to develop the courage, confidence, and character to make the world a better place. 
  • Proven. Our data-backed, time-tested programs are designed to meet the unique needs and specific interests of girls, including the way they learn best.
  • Leadership. We are the organization creating—through our skill-building Girl Scout Leadership Experience—the female leadership pipeline. The go-getters, innovators, risk-takers, and leaders of tomorrow. 
  • Safe. Our leaders, camp counselors, and volunteers are all thoroughly vetted and our safety record is impeccable.
  • Successful. Women who were Girl Scouts have more successful careers, higher household and personal income, and are better educated.
  • Adventure. Activities such as hiking, camping, canoeing, and archery offer girls opportunities to have exciting, girl-led outdoor adventures while learning important skills that teach valuable life lessons, like self-reliance, leadership, and perseverance.
