Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place.
Our purpose is to inspire girls with the highest ideal of character, conduct, patriotism and service. These qualities strongly impact conduct and clearly have lasting effects.
Girl Scouts is the world's pre-eminent organization dedicated solely to girls where in an accepting and nurturing environment girls build character and skills for success in the real world. In partnership with committed adult volunteers, girls develop qualities that will serve them a lifetime. In Girl Scouting girls discover the fun, friendship and power of girls together. Girls who participate in Girl Scout programs report they have greater opportunities to achieve self-reliance, self-competence, social skills, respect for others, feelings of belonging, community concerns, team work, leadership skills and decision making. Women who are recognized leaders cite Girl Scouting as an important part of their success in later life. It is the most wholesome and significant movement in world history. Girl Scouting membership is open to any girl that is willing to follow the Promise and Law with an emphasis on reaching out to the underserved and increasing diversity.
National Girl Scout research has shown that Girl Scouting provides benefits to not only the girls involved, but their parents as well. As a Girl Scout parent you may spend more quality time with your daughter, enjoy a strengthened relationship, build lasting friendships with other adults and develop leadership skills. Girl Scouts gives parents and girls the opportunity to be involved in an activity that benefits the community and gives them a sense of personal satisfaction by achieving a goal together.
