Why Girl Scouts?
Studies show that to create positive, sustainable change in our complex world, we need collaborative leaders who value diversity, inclusion and teamwork. And yet too few leaders today embody these qualities. If we want stronger leaders, we need more girl scouts.
Since March 12th, 1912, when the original G.I.R.L., Juliette Gordon “Daisy” Low, organized the very first Girl Scout troop in her hometown of Savannah, Georgia, Girl Scouts has provided girls of all ages and backgrounds with thousands of unique, girl-led experiences that challenge them, teach them, connect them and encourage them to take meaningful action at every turn.
We’re not stopping until every girl is prepared to empower herself for a life time of leadership, adventure and success.
Her Girl Scout Experience:
As a Girl Scout, your girl will participate in the Girl Scout Leadership Experience-a one-of-a-kind program where she will…
*Engage in healthy activities.
*Find her entrepreneurial spirit and learn financial literacy!
*Explore the great outdoors!
*Connect with girls around the world!
*Take on meaningful community service projects!
Every step of the way, she’ll lead her experience and learn by doing. And at Girl Scouts, she’ll have plenty of opportunities to jump in and make amazing things happen, all while being supported by her peers and caring adults.
Girl Scouts are prepared for a lifetime of leadership.
*90% of all female U.S. Astronauts
*80% of all female tech workers
*76% of all female U.S. Senators
*100% of female U.S. Secretaries of State
were all Girl Scouts.
The Girl Scout Difference:
Research shows that Girl Scouts can be the difference between thriving and surviving for girls.
These are the facts:
*Although it’s common for a girl’s sense of self to decline in middle school, a Girl Scout’s sense of self increases during this period.
*During middle school, non-Girl Scout’s interests and involvement in their communities decreases, whereas Girl Scouts’ desire to solve problems in their communities rises.
*A Girl Scout is more likely than her non-Girl Scout peers to participate in leadership activities-she truly believes in the power of G.I.R.L.
The Skills girls learn through Girl Scouting prepare them for a lifetime of leadership. Girls Scouts have better grades, aspire to higher levels of education and are more confident about their futures than non-Girl Scouts.
