Girl Scouts builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.
Girl Scouts is the BEST girl leadership experience in the world, period. Only Girl Scouts brings the time-tested methods and research-backed programs that speak to the strengths of girl leadership development.
What’s behind our success? The Girl Scout Leadership Experience, a one-of-a-kind, proven leadership development program that pairs girls with strong, caring female role models and mentors who prepare them to take the lead from age 5 to 18 and into adulthood. Offering hands-on, girl-led, girl-centered learning in STEM, the outdoors, and entrepreneurship, and abundant opportunities to develop invaluable life skills, Girl Scouts helps all girls take the lead early and often. And we’re backed by more than 100 years of experience and expertise in the field.
No one does this better than us. Compared to women who weren’t Girl Scouts in their youth, Girl Scout alumnae soar in life. For example, they:
- Have more successful careers
- Enjoy higher household and personal income
- Are more active as mentors and community volunteers
- Vote more regularly
- Are better educated
By investing in Girl Scouts, you are investing in strong female leadership. In the U.S., 90 percent of female astronauts, 80 percent of female tech leaders, 75 percent of current female senators, and 50 percent of female business owners are Girl Scout alumae!
