These days so many people don’t realize all the Girl Scouts has to offer young women. It’s more than just campfires, ghost stories, and cookies–it’s also about thinking big, breaking new ground, and taking smart risks. Today’s Girls Scouts are learning how to be the leaders of tomorrow and it shows.

Each and every Girl Scout is a G.I.R.L. (go-getter, innovator, risk-taker, and leader)™.


Every year Girl Scouts collectively spend 75 million hours helping in their community. They are confident, responsible, and dedicated to changing the world.
