Girl Scouting provides unique opportunities for youth to build healthy relationships, explore their communities, and develop as leaders.
Girl Scouts discover their strengths as they rise to meet new challenges. From making their first friends to planning the career of their dreams, Girl Scouts at every age build courage and confidence in themselves and strive to make their communities a better place. Backed by trusted adult volunteers, mentors, and millions of alums, Girl Scouts lead the way in changing the world.
Whether you’re joining a troop or attending a Girl Scout camp, you'll connect with other kids from your neighborhood, community, and nearby schools. You’ll even get chances to meet with local leaders and mentors while making a difference in your community!
